Seems reasonable in an existential kind of way.
Here in France, there's something else going on. We're lockin' love down here!

The Pont des Arts is a pedestrian bridge that links the palais du Louvre to the l'Institut de France. For ages, artists and photographers have frequented the place for its perspective and views. Now international lovers have plugged it into their GPS devices as a place to declare undying love - well, mostly undying love....more on that later.
The charming collection of locks are placed on the linked fence and the keys are tossed into the Seine - so romantic, don't you think? The city of Paris? ...errr...not so much as occasionally there is a sweep in which the fence is cleared of all of the cadenas d'amour. But as they say, "love is blind" - and sometimes stubborn - as the persistent romantics keep showing up to lock it up with their amoureuses/amoureux.
The next two days will be an hommage to le Pont des Arts and lovers all along the spectrum of romantic love. Curious? Check back in to see what I mean.
Yours in love...with le Pont des Arts,
