There is something intoxicating about France…
There is a rhythm here…
A slowness of pace…
An almost seductive invitation to pause for a moment and let life happen…
It starts with a glance to catch your eye
And if you are receptive
Perhaps we as Americans need to learn the art of the lingering glance…
When you look right into someone's eyes perhaps a second longer than necessary,
but where even one second more would border on creepy…
And then comes the smile…
The slowness of it…
It’s a smile you have to see in your peripheral vision…
Because your eyes are still involved in being drawn in ever so...
A little closer…
And only then
Comes the “Bonjour”
It might be a friendly greeting, inviting you to pause at a display
It might be a neighborly greeting, recognizing your existence
Or it could be an invitation
To stop and chat for a while
But then there is my favorite one
when a gorgeous French man says in that husky accent
You know which one I mean
The one that indicates
of something else to come
If only I would slow down
Release any remaining tension in my body
And surrender to the rhythm that is
And then…the adventure begins…and life…
To be continued...
See you on the mat...with smiles...
