Close at hand

My visit was further enhanced
by various tactile expressions: 
Vin chaud and a new wool wrap
to ward off the chill.
Stiff linen napkins at Ladurée.
The heft of silverware at Musée D'Orsay.
Heavy, elegant menus.
Chilled fingers
stealing heat from a cup of chocolate.
Silk wall coverings at the Carnavalet.
The supple warmth of
a nutella crepe.

Eric Bompard's cashmere.
The exchange of bills and coins.
Sorting through bins of used books.
Vintage furs, silks and leather bags.
New "furs" and silks.
Soothing lotions.
A hot shower and warm bed.
