Flowers left on the church step



The view of Église d'Oratoire from Rue St. Honoré is rather bleak and not at all similar to the majestic front facing Rue de Rivoli. One rainy morning before sunrise Holly and I walked past the worn green doors and noticed this fresh bouquet on the step, carefully bundled with a note.


I'm off on an adventure with Nanette to find some castanets -- I will still be posting daily but with fewer comments until I return.

Something simple and beautiful. A small act of devotion, perhaps.

BEFORE SUNRISE? I'm speechless.

That's quite a bouquet. And did you read the note? (I wouldn't have been able to resist.) BTW, how's that castanet search coming along? Did you find bright red ones, like the macarons you showed us?

To all, I will be sharing a story or two from "beyond" and some photos soon.

Yes, Virginia, before sunrise!
