Paris

I feel incredibly sad tonight to be hearing the news that Notre Dame cathedral is ablaze.

I’m not a religious person but I loved Notre Dame – at one stage pre-marriage I used to spend about a weekend per month in Paris, so know (knew) the city very well. I used to stay in the 5th arrondissement and would regularly walk past the Pantheon down to the Île de la Cité – Paris is a beautiful city to walk around.

Who could not be moved by this?
