Bagatelle Beckons

The task of a leader is to get his people from where they are… to where they have not been.  ~ Henry Kissinger


Two Sundays ago, my boys and I went to see the first flowers of Spring at the beautiful gardens of Château de Bagatelle in the Bois de Boulogne.  In the 1700s, this amazing garden was a “glorified playground” — a maison de plaisance — for the powers-that-be.  It was built at record-speed on a wager, taking only 63 days, 800 workers, and 3 million livres.

And there I was, standing in awe at the huge land where this grand château rested, watching the peacocks that roamed freely.

Then I whispered to my husband:  “If I lived in a house like this while in Paris — I may never wish to leave.”

Days like these make me believe that indeed, Paris is stupendous in very many ways.

Come on, Mom... Take the picture already!!!!
