  26. This picture is so precious!!! & your special post about children playing in paris was a treasure! something quite extraordinary happened to me the other week...i was walking through the book shop(in quite a rush) & an amazing large black & white bookcover caught my attention. i stopped & picked it up & was almost unable to put it back, so beautiful it was, but i couldnt afford it at the time. when i got home i googled the author ...& i think it was you!!! & now the gorgeous book sits in prime loveliness on my shelf, its name, French Essence...so if that was you...Thank you for such a journey!!!
