Shine Bright Paris

Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond
Find light in the beautiful sea
I choose to be happy
You and I, you and I
We're like diamonds in the sky
You're a shooting star I see
A vision of ecstasy
When you hold me, I'm alive
We're like diamonds in the sky
I knew that we'd become one right away
Oh, right away
At first sight I felt the energy of sun rays
I saw the life inside your eyes
So shine bright, tonight you and I

We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky
Eye to eye, so alive
We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky
Shine bright like a diamond

The City of Light, indeed. No one does holidays like Paris. Beautiful, Carol. ❤️

Paris . . . so full of light and sparkles. When we arrived in Paris for a two-year stay, we arrived in January thinking it would be so dark and gloomy. But everywhere around us light spilled onto the sidewalks and up from the river--cafe and shop windows, tourist boats on the Seine, the wonderful carousels that appeared here and there. It was all like a beautiful painting or film. We ducked out to Amsterdam in February--different story--all grays and blacks with little sparkle. When we arrived back, Paris looked like a carnival by comparison, everybody out, their elegant shapes moving in streams on the sidewalks even in their all-black attire. I cherish my many evening photos taken with available light coming from every direction. One of my favorites is an elegant gold trash bag with a big bow leaning against a boutique on rue Jacob. Yes, City of Light.

Thanks for sharing the City of Light with us today. We were in Paris the weekend before Christmas in 1968 and I was entranced by all the lights (though it was nothing like it is now) and I love getting to see it again if only on my screen. Merry and Happy Christmas, Carol and Bear. Hugs to you both.

Thanks to you and Rihanna for this gorgeous greeting, Carol. We appreciate your taking us to Paris all the time with your diligence to your blog. You are amazing!

Beautiful words and pictures! Such a delight!

That carousel! Thanks. Our small town cancelled the 56th Candlelight Tour and asked for suggestions. They decided on a drive through but my wish included a carousel.

Parisbreakfasts said...

I’m sending you many carousels Sally
They are all over here. That one was free. There was a big line of kiddies and parents patiently waiting :))

The lights here are not like in Europe where there is some artistic flair. My favorites here are curtains of lights. Eight strands that hang down 8 feet. But really any lights lift my spirits.

Parisbreakfasts said...

I think they made an extra effort with the lights this year...even calling it ‘Paris Scintille’
The Bastille was never lighted before that I recall
Everyone needs their spirits lifted this year. ⭐️

Beautiful words by Rihanna.. and soothing winter photos to feast while I’m reading. Thank you

Suzanne said...

Oh, wow! The lights look beautiful everywhere, anyway! I hope people get a chance to enjoy them

Maureen said...
