Notre Dame (not the #daily photo)

Like many others, I was greatly saddened to see the beautiful cathedral of Notre Dame, in the heart of Paris, badly damaged by fire this week.  I was there, on a grey and damp day, one year and one week ago.  What a privilege to have seen it as it was then.

Walking through the streets of the Île de la Cité towards the Cathedral

Approaching the main entrance. You can see the top of the spire between the towers

  1. Heartbreaking isn't it? There is not enough beauty in the world to lose any of it.

  2. Well put, EC. Heartbroken was exactly how I felt when I saw the picture of the spire falling.

  3. Wow, it was beautiful. It's good you saw it before the fire. There are so many photos people are posting of its beauty. It will never be the same as it was, but they will rebuild it as the national treasure it still is. World treasure, really.

    1. It was indeed, Strayer. Have you seen it? As you say, it will never be the same as it was, but at least some of the beautiful art was saved.

  4. so beautiful! wish it could be restored :c

  5. awesome article,
    thanks for sharing and have a nice day

  6. Una grande disgrazia, anche se verrà ripristinato non sarà mai come prima.
    Buon inizio settimana.

  7. You should see how my acquaintance Wesley Virgin's biography begins with this SHOCKING AND CONTROVERSIAL video.

    Wesley was in the military-and shortly after leaving-he revealed hidden, "MIND CONTROL" tactics that the CIA and others used to get anything they want.

    These are the EXACT same methods many famous people (especially those who "became famous out of nowhere") and elite business people used to become wealthy and successful.

    You probably know that you utilize only 10% of your brain.

    That's because the majority of your brainpower is UNTAPPED.

    Maybe this conversation has even taken place IN YOUR own head... as it did in my good friend Wesley Virgin's head about seven years ago, while riding an unregistered, beat-up garbage bucket of a vehicle with a suspended driver's license and in his bank account.

    "I'm so fed up with living check to check! Why can't I become successful?"

    You've been a part of those those questions, isn't it so?

    Your success story is going to happen. Go and take a leap of faith in YOURSELF.
