“He who contemplates the depths of Paris is seized with vertigo.
Nothing is more fantastic. Nothing is more tragic.
Nothing is more sublime.”
― Victor Hugo
We all have that place. You know the one – the place that touches your heart, your soul, your dreams. That place where the impossible seems possible. For binNotes, that place is…well, while I live in Seattle, my heart belongs to Burgundy, and my soul to Paris.
Paris – City of Lights, gateway to Burgundy, and international cultural nexus. Paris, where one finds solace in what Peter Mayle refers to as the French ‘happy combination of formality and intimacy.’ Paris…that one book one never quite finishes…always a new chapter to discover.
Today binNotes honors the City of Paris for her courage and grace under recent pressures.
“As long as men are free to ask what they must, free to say what they think, free to think what they will, freedom can never be lost….” Marcel Proust
