Decisions on a dreary day.

Amsterdam was my original destination. I was honored to be part of a think tank on how to effectively use new media formats to communicate better. Being in Africa, this isn’t the kind of commission in which I normally would expect to be a participant. Afterwards, this close to my dad, who lives and works with the church in Paris, I couldn’t turn down the opportunity to get in a quick visit.

A Lover's Kiss and Worship

Parisian Lovers

Having lived in a more conservative, slightly Islamic leaning society for years now, the numerous public displays of affection, the kissing, hey lets just call it what it is, “making out” in public that I saw quite frequently, well, lets just say its not been my regular diet for a while. As dad and I sat awaiting our train, exhausted from our walking the city, a young couple starts kissing in front of us. The train arrives, and she gets on, heading home, her lover left behind, forlorn until tomorrow.
