Congratulations and thank you for taking this on. I, too, hope there will be an online link.

Chapeau! I love my writer's group. Is yours all English speaking or francophones or...? How did you find each other in Paris?

I love the Grand Palais too. Maybe I need to try my experiment again and focus on public buildings and see what comes up in my mind.

No, I had an appointment and couldn't wait. Plus, I was afraid he wouldn't offer the dog a treat and I didn't want to be disappointed for the dog.
