Paris : Fiction and Images, a New Series of Each
Pictured Left : New – Slumming in Paris, Part One, Arthur & Gricinda.
A fun novella. A young couple with a little time before their two children and the children’s four young cousins all arrive to join them in Paris (Parts Two & Three).
The images in this series of posts of Paris photos, are a record of the visual experience that provides part of the inspiration for my series of Paris based family novels.
“the intent of this blog is to incrementally build a body of thought that works toward integrating various topics, yoga, fitness, and the arts – it’s a process…”

Birds in the Bath
With a prayer that good, from all peoples, will continue to battle the insanity of needless violence on our planet.

Birds in the Bath
Rains in Paris and in Austin
The same rains wet with earth made
The birds don’t care.
The water is the same, all good to them.
It doesn’t matter the season or the place.
And the people passing smiling by them
in Paris and in Austin
are like them.
They don’t care either.
The birds are all the same, all good to them.
Rinsing off the muddy differences
mad men try to make
on our Earth.

I very recently, in my Paris Photo series, posted some images of birds bathing in a puddle by the Eiffel Tower, and kept thinking and feeling the similarity to birds just about everywhere I’ve been blessed to go on this Earth.
And though not that many places, enough to feel that particular connection.
Then I remembered I had taken some pictures of birds bathing just a few weeks earlier here in Austin, and couldn’t resist posting a poem for it, and showing the photos.
This was taken just a walk down from our apartment, in a green area between Palmer Events Center and Lady Bird Lake. Palmer is a reconstructed use of an old auditorium where Sheila and I did almost all our Austin art and craft shows when we were personalizing and selling our poetry to the public back in the 90s.
If you get a chance take a look at the Paris birds bathing by the Eiffel Tower.
namaste´- con dios – god be with you
