When I was a kid, I thought Paris was this perfect place where everyone got along and anyone could be anything. Turns out, real life's a little bit more complicated than a slogan on a bumper sticker. Real life is messy. We all have limitations. We all make mistakes. Which means, hey, glass half full, we all have a lot in common. And the more we try to understand one another, the more exceptional each of us will be. But we have to try. I implore you: Try. Try to make the world a better place. Look inside yourself and recognize that change starts with you. It starts with me. It starts with all of us.
WELCOME • I'VE SEEN YOU, BEAUTY, AND YOU BELONG TO ME NOW, WHOEVER YOU ARE WAITING FOR AND IF I NEVER SEE YOU AGAIN, I THOUGHT. YOU BELONG TO ME AND ALL PARIS BELONGS TO ME AND I BELONG TO THIS NOTEBOOK AND THIS PENCIL. ―ERNEST HEMINGWAY
