I’m happy you’ve dropped by.
We have news!
On a personal note, 2020 was a very hard year for many reasons.
Who knew that 2021 could start us off at such an important, and frightening, crossroad.
I believe democracy, and decency, will prevail, but it’s going to take good people fighting hard.
Stay strong. Don’t give up on your dreams.
We wish you all peace and good health.
We may not be able to travel to Paris right now, but we can enjoy an imaginary visit with the help of Carousels of Paris.
We may have added some new things since you were last here, so please make yourself at home and browse around.
At Etcetera we’re adding photos and there’s a link to my Paris reading list which I update often, links to past newsletters and a short story. I’ll be adding short stories here over time.
You’re able to access my blog, Meanderings and Muses, from here where I blog about everything from books to poetry to politics to photography. From art I love to things I don’t love. Travel and things I’m doing while staying safe at home.
This is also the place to sign up for my very occasional newsletter. They’ll be very infrequent now that Carousels of Paris has been out for awhile, but it’s how I announce the random giveaways. And we never know when that might happen.
There’s also a contact page in case you want to send me a note. Always happy to hear from you!
Enjoy and thanks for dropping by! I hope everyone is staying happy and healthy.
Carousels of Paris
The book captures the colorful motion of everyday life in the City of Light while chronicling the history and characteristics of these unique attractions.
Carousels are much more than amusement rides. They are emblematic of the fantastical and the fun, the wild and the tamed. With their varying degrees of ornamentation and craftsmanship, Parisian carousels have for more than a century signaled delight and merriment for children while igniting the still small spark of whimsy among adults.

The book is so incredibly beautiful that it made me cry!
