Paris on my mind....


As the news was unfolding on my TV screen late Friday evening 
disbelieving what I was seeing....
I was feeling
shocked....  dismayed.... angry... sad....
overwhelmingly sad,
that once again, people going about there everyday life
were murdered in cold blood. 

I wasn't surprised though,
I have come to realise years ago,
there are people that just want to hate
 they desire to spread fear & misery wherever they can.
I have long stopped asking why,  
the answers would never make sense to any 
reasonable person anyhow. 
And just like after school shootings I am not interested 
in the perpetrators names, faces or there life stories. 
They are not worthy of my time.

My thoughts are with
....the victims of Fridays atrocities 
....the beautiful city of Paris and its people.

My thoughts are with 
.....people who just wanted to enjoy 
the little things that make life 
beautiful & worth living for....

meeting family & friends 
eating out 
listening to a concert
taking a stroll on a mild evening

My thoughts are with
 ....people that embrace living life
in a free Europe!

"Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité"

 I for one have decided
the best way to honour those victims 
and to defeat the haters is
LoVe & LiVe 
life to the full.

wishing you



  1. Hi Anna, thank you for your words on my blog.
    I totally agree with you, we don't need this hatered, we need to live in harmony and live our lives!

    Wishing you a happy week-end❤️

  2. Just want to let you know how much I enjoy your blog which I have been following for a while. My thoughts are also with Paris but at the same time, I am so grateful that I live on a safe little island on the other side of the world. I so wish all this madness would stop!
