A little Paris magic in La Quinta

During lunch one day at TEDActive, I shared a table with an attendee from Paris.  We ended up talking about the city, which we both love. 

In the course of the conversation, I mentioned my favorite spot in Paris, about twenty or so yards in front of Notre Dame.  I've discussed this spot in an earlier blog post, because it affords you what I call a moment of perfect potential.  As I described the location, he became more and more animated. 

"Yes," he said, "I know it very well.  It is perfect.  I proposed to my wife there."

I may never see that man again, but in that moment we bonded over our appreciation of that little bit of perfect ground. 

We both walked away smiling.
