Paris Haiku Friday—After the Louvre


With a nod to a post earlier this week about navigating the Louvre with children, today’s haiku speaks to the effect that this wonderful and huge museum has on me.

When I go to the Louvre, I follow the advice I give to my clients: choose one wing or movement, and pretend the rest is across town. This approach keeps me from getting lost, and allows me to dive deeply into a time or place in art history.

The combination of limiting my options while still partaking of immense cultural richness leaves me feeling both tired and wanting more.
