Under Construction: Brussels, the European Union, and Me
This post was inspired by the Write on Edge RemembeRED writing prompt:
“Imagine your life, or a part of your life, as a title and tagline. That’s it. Give us the title, and give us the tagline.”
You know I can’t leave it at that. This prompt and my oldest nephew’s recent arrival in France has me thinking of my own study abroad experience in 1994. I have a whole separate post brewing about this. Here I’ll just say the whole city felt as if it were under construction. The fountain in the picture above did not exist when I arrived. I walked by a mess of cranes building something day after day. During the last two weeks of my stay, the cranes were replaced by a small park complete with trees, benches, and that fountain, ironically (defiantly?) crane-like.
