Hello, Velvet,

I have never been to Paris, but my daughter said when she saw Notre Dame, she was suddenly brought to tears by its beauty and history.

And thank you for the rest of your post, too.

There is an old saying in the teaching of writing that says, “Don’t tell. Show.”

I have never seen you, but I can see the voice in your writing. Your inner beauty shows through in your words.

I humbly thank you.

Boomer

Very well stated.

My concern is that there is currently a large crack in the gate...and evil has already started oozing through.

Let's just hope we can repair the gate...very soon.

Fire-ravaged Notre Dame now stabilized, firefighters leave - ABC News

A computer glitch might be the cause of the Cathedral of Notre Dame fire?

That is incredibly sad to see history up in flames, so to speak.

Watching fire on tv and looking at picture my mother sketched when 16 with pen and ink.

WOW, awesome talent...especially at 16!

Did she ever work professionally at it?

Much harder and infinitely more detailed, than the average amateur dabbler who paints flowers or nature scenes...that's for sure.

I can certainly see where she could have had commercial success.

Thanks for posting that. I did a lot of drawings at 16 and 17 but never got to Paris. At least, not yet. Drew a lot of veterans at the Veterans Hospital in Reno, NV when I volunteered every Saturday for a year or so in 1977-1978. I worked off of the photos of a quite talented photographer.

I minored in Religious Studies and I did take a course in Medieval Art which covered the Cathedral of Notre Dame among many other such structures.

Thank you Cold no more, never professionally, just dabbled. Very proud of her!
