The Heart Truth- Red Dress

Go deeper than the pink, go red. Go deeper than the breast, go to the heart.

Heart disease is the NUMBER ONE killer of women in the USA. Eat right, exercise, get enough sleep, and cultivate social relationships (make friends!); these will help save your heart. I know because I have CAD, coronary artery disease.

Since my first trip to Paris in 2004, I have wanted to move to Paris permanently. I even named this blog after that dream. On that first trip, mid way through the week, I knew I didn’t want to leave the City of Light and return to Tinytown. Finding a way to get there, legally, occupied my time. Finally, I realized that retirement would have to occur before relocation could. So I waited and dreamed.
But I have decided to compare where I am to where I want to be to see if Paris really is better.

Paris                                                               Tinytown
Speak French                                                               Speak English
Expensive cost of living                                                 Cheap cost of living
Rent a tiny apartment                                                    Rent a 2 bedroom house
Variety of restaurants                                                    4 restaurants
Many museums                                                            One museum (not yet open)
1000+ years of history                                                 100+ years of history
What “customer service”                                             Good customer service
No one knows me                                                       Who doesn’t know me
Many movie theatres                                                    No movie theatres
The Metro and buses and trains                                    My Jeep Patriot
Paperwork for everything                                             What paperwork?
Rain                                                                             Heat
Boulangerie                                                                 The Shell gas station
Patisserie                                                                     The Shell gas station
The Eiffel Tower                                                          The water tower
The Seine                                                                     Full ditches after a rare rain

I think I’ll stay in Tinytown. Makes sense, no?
