    Thank you for bringing Paris, the City I love, to me. I live in Chicago and have a home in Vail Colorado where my husband and I have the virus and are recuperating. It brings me such joy to dream of a return to Paris in the near future! The photos, book recommendations and articles are wonderful! We look forward to our return and know things will be beautiful again! Much love to you all... Linda

    I loved reading about Paris and seeing your beautiful photos. I miss this city so much. For many years I guided small groups of women to Paris for a week each May.Thank you for this. Kathleen

    I love every edition of this lovely magazine, today more than any other. Last evening my daughter's husband was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. She is devasted, and because of the Covid lockdown I cannot visit her. I just emailed her the magazine so that she might be consoled a little by the beautiful flowers in the photographs. I wanted you to know that somehow we can reach out across a continent and across an ocean to help one another in difficult times. Thank you, Lois Millar, Vancouver
