Nostalgie


Allow me a moment today.  For you, these steps probably don't mean much.  For me,  many fond memories. These are the slopey, well worn stairs from our apartment on St. Roch. I've walked DOWN them many, many times. Up.... not so much.  The morning light on the well worn carpet was too good to resist.

You stated "Up.... not so much." But you can't walk down if you haven't walked up...unless there is an elevator.

The light is glorious, dear V. At least you walk down those stairs, if not up ~ it all counts!!

Ha! I recognized them straight away even before I read you're description. I feel lucky to have visited there too. Great image!

I love staircases, and this one is wonderful! But you're right about the coming down and going up though. But they're neat to look up. lol

Ah! these are classy steps Virginia ... carpeted and with those little foot-rails that help us get a better grip. Funny how we grow to love the steps that lead to home. My little Parisian apartment stairs are wooden and well-worn but what a delight to climb at the end of the day. I stop halfway up and listen to the trill of the opera singer practising her notes and the music student in the side room softly fingering his keyboard. So good to be home.
