  • Merci beaucoup, Kay.

    All knitters, weavers, quilters, seamstresses, tailors, stand with Paris!

  • Thank you for putting into word what has been going thru my mind since last night.

  • Thank you for putting words to my scattered thoughts. I feel the need to start another Clapotis. Is this wrong?

  • Perfect. Lovely. Thank you.

  • Merci for putting into writing what we are all thinking.
    Spent last night listening to BBC feed on wnyc.
    Can only imagine the heightened security in the City – NYC – today.

  • Thank you for the clip of Springsteen. As I watched the news last night and today, I thought of my years living in Paris and one of the few concerts I’ve gone to. It was in the early 90’s and Bruce came to Paris. Although the concert was at Bercy, not La Bataclan, I couldn’t help but think of that concert and then My City of Ruins.

    My heart bleeds for the Parisians and the insult to them and their beautiful city. Although I have lost track of my friends in Paris, I’m thinking about them and hoping all are well.

  • Thank you. ♡

  • This is a perfect response, Kay — thank you.

  • I think of all those young people, most of whom are roughly the same age as my son and his friends, and my heart just breaks, for them, for their loved ones, for the sickness that could cause any human to do this to another human.

    I love this post, Kay. I was holding it together until I saw the photo of the “Not Afraid” gathering. That is just the best, most powerful thing. Something we all need to see, and try to feel, IMHO. Thank you. XOX

  • Je suis Charlie
    Nous sommes Paris

  • A perfect post for our imperfect world.
    (I’d love to end this with a perfect French saying but my vocab is limited to excuses for not having finished my homework: J’ai mal a la tete …though maybe that is apropos.) xox

  • Dear Kay,

    Reading your post today brought a smile to my face. Thank you. I hope someday soon you will be able to come to Paris and knit with us at L’Oisivethé. Please bring Ann with you. 🙂

    Kindest regards,

  • I love Paris. I love France. They will persevere through this horror. Again.

    Vive le France!
