This week, I was asked to write a feature on Paris and its wonders. Alas, there do not seem many words that could speak for her in the wake of this week.
The wonderful and exquisite charms of anything fade, as they should, in the face of fear and chaos.
Whether I be a journalist, juggler or jockey, today, I am merely a fellow traveller.
I will not become speculative, neither will I perpetuate the rapid spread of vile images and hate that is brewing.
From a Londerner to you, Paris, I am sorry. Words won’t fix a city rocked by such cowardly actions and horror, but, from just one person, miles away, my love is with you all.
