Paris is always a good idea

“Once upon a time, on the north shore of Long Island, not far from New York, there was a very, very large mansion, almost a castle. And on this very large estate lived a small girl. And life was pleasant there and very, very simple. But, then one day, the girl grew up and went beyond the walls of the grounds and found the world.”

i’m not going to Paris. i’m going to Friedrichshafen. perhaps it will be the best thing for me. perhaps i’ll come back and claim that i found myself there. perhaps i’ll say, like sabrina fairchild, “America is my country but Friedrichshafen is my home.” i don’t think i will — my home is here and what more do i have to find? i’d rather have someone say to me while i’m there, “I’m in Friedrichshafen but you are somewhere else.”

i would like to “see the world through rose colored glasses” though. and of course, sting can play my background music…

In the moonlight
When the shadows play
When the thought of what could happen
Takes your breath away

my mumsie is so good to me. it’s days like today, when i’m almost fainting and she’s holding a bucket for me as my stomach refuses to keep my stomach acid down, that i think, “what will i do without her?”

  1. Alright – side note, you did not almost faint – you completely fainted. I was there – I caught you with Dad as you “melted” to the floor. 😉 Glad you seem better.

    Maude Larrabee: They grew up together. She’s like a sister to him, Patrick.
    Patrick Tyson: I have a sister. That’s not how we dance.

  4. Aw, Louissa, I hope you’re feeling better very soon!
    And I have to add: don’t ever lose those rose-colored glasses through which you view the world. Oh, it’s okay to take them off for a short time once in a while, but always put them back on. Life is much more pleasant that way. Trust me.
