Walking around Paris with Piapi.
Chilly, cloudy and drizzle.
Visited a shopping mall called Le Forum des Halles.
Christmas holidays are drawing near.
It’s Sunday. Some stores were closed but some weren’t.
I saw people’s smiles and heard people’s laughter here and there.
There were families, friends and lovers.
We’re connected to each other, that’s why we can share a peaceful moment.
Walking with my wife, I really appreciate the very moment on which we enjoy life in peace.
It’s been a year today when there was a terrorist’s attack in Paris.
Now there are lots of soldiers with automatic rifles walking around with serious faces.
There was also a memorial event held in town.
At a department store, a young man from Edinburgh talked me while I was walking in Japanese Kimono and One-Tooth Geta(wooden sandal).
Joe was his name. He was his girl friend. He said he was so curious about my geta. And I let him wear mine, which made him smile a big smile.
I told him about this One-Tooth Geta. He said he would like to have a pair.
People always pay attention to One-Tooth Geta wherever I am.
It’s a special tool which can raise people’s attention.
I shared a peaceful moment with Joe.
I can imagine he walks in One-Tooth Geta with a big smile again.
Someday it will come true, I hope.
