Susie has a ticket to Paris for later this month—leaving on the 16th.  She’s been very excited about her trip, which would be her and a close girlfriend who’s never been to Paris before.

However, it seems like a trip to Paris might be altogether too memorable, or risky.  I’m starting to think travelling there would be a bad idea, and that she should skip the trip, or fly in and immedaitely depart for another safer city, like Pamplona.

On the other hand, there has been little disturbance in Paris proper, and she hasn’t been back in ages, and this trip would be an excellent one, and the money’s already spent.

What do you all think?

Update: Susie decided to go, on the sage advice of a friend living in Paris.

I Almost Forgot I Almost Died


“The sad truth is that most evil is done by people who never make up their minds to be good or evil.”

...who said it?

“Almost every American I know does trade large portions of his life for entertainment, hour by weeknight hour, binge by Saturday binge, Facebook check by Facebook check. I’m one of them. In the course of writing this I’ve watched all 13 episodes of House of Cards and who knows how many more West Wing episodes, and I’ve spent any number of blurred hours falling down internet rabbit holes. All instead of reading, or writing, or working, or spending real time with people I love.”

...who said it?

“Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

...who said it?

“I play with variables constantly.”

...who said it?

“Only the person who has learned Continual Love coming from a heart of Gratitude/Worship can effectively deal with the problem of loneliness.”
