Chic city look - trench coat, LBD and Prada purse

My heart belongs to two cities: Paris and Boston. I live near Boston during the school year and go visit my family and friends in Paris during vacations. These pictures were taken in Boston, last week, before a little afternoon photography exhibit (which I told you about in my newsletter - Herb Ritts anyone?).

Naturally, when these two cities are struck by terrorist attacks, I feel a pang of emotion for both. November 13th and April 15th, Paris and Boston. The Boston marathon in 2013 was an atrocious event. How could something so horrible happen so close to home? Next, this past Friday, there were multiple terrorist attacks in Paris. I don't ask how could something so horrible happen so close to home anymore, but instead, in this world!? Why is there so much hatred? Resentment?

Unfortunately, I don't have any solutions to these problems but I do know something. We need to believe in humanity and in life. Separated from Paris by an ocean, I still was under total shock when I learned about Friday's events. For all those who feel powerless faced with these attacks, keep your eyes fixed on the horizon, filled with hope for the futur.



Mon cœur appartient à deux villes: Paris et Boston. J'habite près de Boston pendant l'année, mais pendant les vacances, je rends visite à ma famille et à mes amis à Paris. Ces photos ont été prises à Boston, le week-end dernier, avant un après-midi expo photo (je vous en parlais dans ma newsletter - Herb Ritts, vous en souvenez-vous?). 



Naturellement, quand il y a des attentats dans ces villes, je ressens un pincement au cœur. Le 13 novembre et le 15 avril, Paris et Boston. Le marathon de Boston en 2013 était un événement atroce. Comment quelque chose de si barbare peut-il se passer si près de chez moi? Ensuite, vendredi dernier, il y a eu les multiples attentats à Paris. Je ne me demande plus comment quelque chose de si sauvage peut se passer près de chez moi, mais carrément dans ce monde!? Pourquoi y a-t-il tant de haine? Tant de rancœur?



Malheureusement, je n'ai pas de solution pour ces problèmes mais je sais une chose. Nous devons croire en l'humanité et à la vie. Même si je suis à un océan de Paris en ce moment, j'ai été choquée par les événements. Pour tous ceux qui se sentent impuissants face aux événements, gardons les yeux rivés vers l'horizon, pleins d'espoir pour l'avenir.

    1. Thank you Valentina. I'm struggling for words too. I don't know how to voice my thoughts better than my words above.
