2- in a new house
and pack up Minette and go spend a few months in Paris.
Rent a studio apartment on the Left Bank and just Be There.
I will go to all the old spots we went to every year, the galleries, we always brought some small piece of art home with us as a souvenier.
The museums, I will have lunch at the D'Orsay , under the clock .. The Rodin, I will just sit in the gardens and absorb the beauty of the place.
The Picasso in the Marais then I will wander the Marais , the shops and stop and have a bite to eat and people watch.
I will sit in parks on a bench and be one of those old women in the park feeding the birds.
I will take a ride on the Bateau Mouche which I never did in all our time spent in Paris.
I will go to the Flea Market and root among the junk and find a little treasure to bring home.
I will have afternoon coffee in a cafe and people watch.
I will go to the cinema.
I will go to the Garnier and listen or see anything with music.
I will shop... boutiques, flea markets, department stores, galleries.
And every step of the way I will be talking to my husband in my head / heart .. about all the sights and sounds and smells that are Paris, the Paris he took me to for the first time , all those years ago.
