This one is for you


I carried a gun in my Chanel 2.55 once. A boy I liked left it in my apartment and I didn't want it there since it took my breath away everytime my eyes met it and not in a newly inlove kind of way. It apeared in my dreams at night, it controlled my thoughts so I gently folded some silk around it, put it down carefully and walked with determinded steps to the thames late one night with stars as my witnesses and droped it into the dark and forgiving water. The moon turned black for a split second and my heart stopped, then he returned and all was well. My bag was easy to carry again, and my feet had broken loose from their concrete foundation that they'd walked around with before. But now I miss it. It was a beautiful piece, something to put on top of a pile of books. The weight is incredible.

But it's gone, much like the boy I once liked. But Paris, loyal and beautiful Paris is still here and so is Chloè with her loving eyes.

I love Paris. I've never touch a gun(but for some reason I wish I could),much less carried it in my bag.

Paris on a crisp cold overcast morning. Walking around the Le Marais and Quartier Latin Districts.

If I remember correctly I think Arrondissements 4 and 5 respectively?

Great photos.

OMG, you carried a gun in your Chanel? Good thing the Chanel didn't break. You thought I was about to say "good thing you were not caught for illegal possession of a firearm". I was more concerned about your bag. Hahaha!

Beautiful pictures and words. I love the way your write, unlike so many other blogs , you tell stories so beautifully, not just simply tell what happened. Much deeper and meaningful, I am touched.

I don't like guns... They are loud. And I like it when it's quiet.
