I try to remain upbeat and optimistic, but it's not always easy. This morning is another sad one. Anger-tinged too. There's no way I can clearly express my feelings about the attack in Nice last night. On top of the two horrible Paris attacks last year, the sorrow and rage are overwhelming.
Ce drapeau sera en berne ce matin. Notre joie de vivre aussi. This flag will be flying at half-mast this morning, I'm sure. The photo shows the rue Soufflot, where I worked for several years, decades ago, in happier times. That's the Luxembourg Palace on the other side of the boulevard Saint-Michel in the Latin Quarter.
