Six Years Ago Today...
...David and I visited Père Lachaise cemetery in Paris. While we stopped at Oscar Wilde's tomb and Jim Morrison's shrine, as a Lenormand reader, I first had to visit its namesake, Mademoiselle Marie Anne Lenormand's resting place.
To my great surprise, her gravesite was so well cared for and abundantly decorated with plants and flowers and cherub statuettes.
I sat down in the cool, peaceful morning light and wrote a message for the famous sibyl of Paris and threw a few Lenormand cards—with my mini Antiquarian Lenormand that I took with me on my travels through France.
I thought about all the souls that must have stopped here through the years, since 1843, to visit her just like this.
The cards I pulled, Dog + Clover + Tree. I felt the loyal connections of the people through the years; her great niece who must have laid flowers such as these, her students, and now worldwide Lenormand peeps, like me and maybe you, who stop to say hello and merci for her legacy.
