Over the hundreds of years I’ve stood, I’ve seen more despair than this. I’ve seen more change than this. This fire which blazed inside our steeple is a vestige, soon to be resurrected.

Revolution. There is a time of great destruction. To our city, to our people, that was the fire that raged for a decade. Storming the Bastille, execution of thousands of citizens…World Wars which raged on my doorstep, death and destruction abounds. The likes I have not seen since.

My City, the City of Lights, shines brightly with the radiance of not only our tower, but our people.


Written for 100 Word Wednesday: Week 117

How to participate? A few guidelines as we begin….

  1. Simply check my feed, or search the reader, for the 100WW or tag #100WW, post each Wednesday. I’ll also be posting on my Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook Feeds.
  2. Write your submission on your blog, Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook Feed and ping back to the weekly blog post. Feel free to use the image provided or your own. Please do credit the artist whose image we use — Links provided.
  3. I have not enabled automatic pingbacks due to a plethora of spam messages attempting to link up. Do feel free to also continue posting your links and I will enable your pingbacks as I check my blog. Thank you for understanding!!
  4. I’ll provide a Weekly Summary, or Windup, of posts on or by Tuesday; take the opportunity to read and comment on your fellow bloggers posts {keeping in mind to give each other grace and space}. I try to read them all and post your submission in the Weekly Windup.
