France at 20

by Devora Rogers

February in France. Street lamps illuminate drizzly narrow cobblestone streets. Stone muses grow out of fountains and water streams down their marble locks. Cathedral bells dignify time and regulate day. Ten clementines five francs, aubergines eight francs le kilo au marché. Earl Grey tea and Madeline's for breakfast with Daphné before school.


Devora Rogers writes about new media for a living, blogs about Europe for fun and recently completed her first novel. She lives in Los Angeles.
