Versailles For Realz (2008)

Late in February we flew to Paris.

Staying on the left bank with my 16-year old daughter commingled my own Sorbonne study-abroad memories with this year's damp hikes looking for cafes with wi-fi.

Long ago, as a student there, I had been compelled to replace my sneakers with a pair of high-heeled, strappy, pink sandals.

Tucked under our fine, French bedspread watching Sophia Coppola's movie Marie Antoinette fired us up for the next day’s Chateau de Versailles tour.

Later, back home, I see Phoebe's own creativity taking form, with the grandeur of Paris and Versailles as the setting; this is another story I feel compelled to tell.
