Today I realised that a little self-belief can go a long way towards making a day feel better---and maybe a week, then maybe a month, then maybe a life-time (even if I cannot, and do not, profess to be very good at maintaining it).
I also realised that I really, really would rather like to return to here.
(Paris, from the steps of La Basilique du Sacré-Coeur. Taken a little more than two years ago).
In fact, it doesn't even have to be Paris---just somewhere French.
Oh, and that manners - real manners, chivalry and all - should never, ever die out. Please.
