The Importance of Paris

Just started reading David McCullough’s book, “The Greater Journey: Americans in Paris.” McCullough tells the stories of people like Samuel F.B. Morse, James Fenimore Cooper, Charles Sumner, Elizabeth Blackwell and others who sailed to the City of Lights seeking to learn. Many of those who made the journey went on to achieve great things for both America and the world. I was scrolling through my photo catalog and this throwaway shot from my last visit to the city on the Seine fired up my wanderlust.
