The Blogger's Soul

Bearing your soul.
I just listened to a writer tell his audience, “What is there not to write about?”
life
Sunsets
Children
Cities
Love
Adventure
Families

As I sift through the people and places of my daily life, I find it is extremely important to listen.
We learn a lot.

My child spoke…

Some things I learned last week was that Denali National Park will not just let you drive through. They put people on school busses and chauffeur them through the amazing Alaskan tundra.
All caps of the word LORD in psalms reminds us of the Ia God Yahweh.
Mike crafted an eloquent phone call calmed down a customer and followed through on a pitch to crack a joke with John…no too funny, but ended up to make it an office sprinkle of fun to lighten up a heavy day.
She was tear-filled as she spoke of the riff between the two very close sisters. Hurting and sad. Needing to get this resolved.
He took a hurting widow with two small adorable redheads and began a family.
Jim at 82 married again. She is delightful and they are so much in love. I am very glad for him.
Thank you for a good week, Lord.
Thankful for your love and protection.
I love you.

Ice on my Carousel

They are in several tourist places in Paris, like the Place Saint-Pierre in Montmarte, Jardin des Tuileries and Jardin du Luxembourg, but the most beautiful is the Eiffel Tower Carousel on the corner of the Pont d’Iéna and Quai Branly. What distinguishes this colourful carousel with white horses from any other in the world is the fact that it is right in front of the Eiffel Tower, giving an excellent opportunity for photographs.

The Pont Neuf Bridge

The Pont Neuf Bridge

The Pont Neuf (French pronunciation: ​[pɔ̃ nœf], New Bridge) is, despite its name, the oldest standing bridge across the river Seine in Paris, France. Its name, which was given to distinguish it from older bridges that were lined on both sides with houses, has remained. It stands by the western point of the Île de la Cité, the island in the middle of the river that was the heart of medieval Paris.

The bridge is composed of two separate spans, one of five arches joining the left bank to the Île de la Cité, another of seven joining the island to the right bank. Old engraved maps of Paris show how, when the bridge was built, it just grazed the downstream tip of the Île de la Cité; since then, the natural sandbar building of a mid-river island, aided by stone-faced embankments called quais, has extended the island. Today the tip of the island is the location of the Square du Vert-Galant, a park named in honour of Henry IV, nicknamed the “Green Gallant”.

The Boulevard Saint-Germain is a major street in Paris on the Left Bank (south side) of the Seine river. It curves in a 3.5 kilometer arc from the Pont de Sully in the east (the bridge at the edge of the Île Saint-Louis) to the Pont de la Concorde (the bridge to the Place de la Concorde) in the west and traverses the 5th, 6th, and 7th arrondissements. At its midpoint, the Boulevard Saint-Germain is traversed by the north-south Boulevard Saint-Michel. The boulevard is most famous for crossing the Saint-Germain-des-Prés quarter from which it derives its name.
