Stories are unfoldng wherever you go. You just have to stop, watch and listen. Last summer I spotted this lady topping up her tan at the Palais Royal in Paris. What I didn’t initially notice was that she was literally charming the birds from the trees, that tiny sparrows were flocking to the plentiful supply of crumbs she was holding between her fingers. It was as if she were meditating and I stood there in silent awe.
