This fire has a symbolic meaning for me:

Notre Dame Cathedral fire: Spire and roof collapse as flames break out in historic church tower in Paris, France - CBS News

Just like this:

Hope that you are in good health Gyuri...good to see you again despite the dreadful news you bring.

It is a tragedy of unknown proportions. My heart goes out to all involved and to the French people in general.

I had been feeling upbeat - 77th birthday on last thursday, 1st anniversary of my heart surgery was on last Monday! But an incidence of this scale and proportion puts such things to the back of my mind as I listen to Glenn Gould's (slow) interpretation of Bach's Goldberg Variations.

The two main towers have been saved, a relief.

I recall attending the 650 year celebration of the Notre Dame with my g/f, December '85, a minor renovation had just been completed.
Amazing light show all around the Notre Dame, with the voice of a woman telling the story of the cathedrale and how much it is part of Paris.
Most impressive Xmas I've spent at home or abroad

Watching the Notre Dame burn sort a feels as a cherished memory going up in flames

Hi Dodo's!!

One of the results of swinging from branch to branch of my family tree is that over the years I have found five sisters to me that were all born by different mothers. The discovery of each new sister was accompanied by various stages of acceptance, usually starting out with a remark that went something like "are you shitting me?".

It took a year of planning but this past weekend I was able to be with all five of my sisters for the 1st time ever in our lives!!!

Ohhhhh my.... What have I created??

We had a wonderful time and there are a hundred stories to tell.

As you can see - I have my hands full.....
