Third of seven novellas in the "Slumming in Paris, With the Children" series and Part Four of my "Slumming in Paris" Series.
Groceries & Gare l'Est. : The story continues with the children, and the adults having welcomed the arrival of their grandparents and small neighbor child, and the larger expanded family group venturing out into Paris together.
Experiencing Paris is, in this work, both symbolic, and an engulfing immersion all its own. The mystery, for each person who visits this wonderful city, is how to individually reconcile everything they have known before, and hope to know. And to know, in this instance, because there are so many characters, mostly young, is a variable thing.
And realizing that, that "knowing is a process," for us as people, is, I truly believe, one of the greatest gifts Paris, and fiction, we can receive.
