Pierre Hermes was just voted to have the best croissant in all of France. Just something to remember next time you are there.

Bonne annee et meilleurs voeux! Sorry also not to have had our paths cross on the West Coast, but I left some goodies with your Mom to send your way.

The years just keep getting better and better. Momentum is a great thing, as is an ambitious "look out world" spirit - happy 2007! I have a feeling this is going to be a BIG YEAR for everyone.

happy new year to you too!

i visited your photo gallery, and i read you blog all the time.. i really like it.

and about the photos.. i loved 'keep right' (London underground, August 2006), because it gives me the greatest feeling of happiness, and the thought of 'i go where life takes me, life is great and worth living'...

also, 'watching the cars go by'... it reminds me of this beautiful song, called chasing cars (by snowpatrol) 'if i just lay here.. would you lie with me and just forget the world'

but the one i liked most is 'sun drenched apartment'. it's just... it leaves me speechless. it reminds me of a person a once loved, and his apartment, in the morning, when he left for his daily training.. and the sun came in and shined over the place... it was such a beautiful light... warm and orange.. and simply breathtaking...

i associate a song with almost all your outside-pictures. they're great. thay say more than a thousand words.

so.. happy 2007 and i hope your new camera will help you take pictures of all the beautiful things around you...

Gill, a belated happy new year to you! I enjoyed spotting myself (right at the top!) in your photo montage of the year. It really was wonderful meeting you in Paris, and while it seems so long ago, those are definitely times I will always remember fondly. Hopefully we'll see something of each other in 2007, though life sure does get busy.... Best of luck with the new year!

xoxo
