How the Seine sparkles in the bright Spring sunshine.

How Marguerite's crazy smile sparkles in the bright Spring sunshine.

How this miniscule homeless kitten (her owner is a homeless man) sleeps peacefully on a busy Parisian street at midday.

(Clarification: most homeless people in Paris own an animal. For companionship, of course, but also because there is a French law that states that the police cannot pick up homeless people for being on the street if they have an animal. The logic - alright, there is none - but if there were it would be something like, 'How would the state take care of those animals if the person were no longer able to?' The result: a whole lot of homeless animals).

Sitting under the big, brightly colored Printemps dome with Emma and snapping a photo of ourselves reflected in the mirror of the table.

The big, brightly colored Printemps dome.

Oh, and oh, Joyce - my sister Julie's.

So many things to comment on here -- Look at the image in the reflection of the water -- can you see Eloise the Cow's face with her huge eyelashes???

Also -- love the Printemps canopy -- it reminds me of the colors and patterns in an intricate Ukranian Pysanky Easter Egg.

The kitty is too cute. What an interesting law -- trust the French!
