Navigable channel where Paris is built over, won’t be seen at first sight.
“Beauty is all very well at first sight
but whoever looks at it when it has been in the house three days..?”
(George Bernard Shaw – irish literary critic, playwright and essayist)
*1925 Nobel Prize for Literature*
Daily prompt “At first sight“
At first sight – a romantic concept at the highest level
logical, objectively, chemically and mathematical point of view
there may be lots of common sense in this concept
a mixture of the heart and brain
but perhaps the world around us become too fast
for these two always manage to go together
we are bombarded with impressions of media and environments
so we lose some of our overview and for a split second forget listening to our inner voice.
Écluse de l’Arsenal – at first sight is not the way to the french temptations
but actually it is one of the keys to the parisian delights from the riverside.
These green people beyond the colorful clothes seems not important at first sight
but they know their city better than most and clean the city in the early morning
so it is nice and welcoming when we wake
then we can use the rest of the day to make the streets of Paris soiled again.
At first sight so Paris often hits both our brain and heart.
