beauty at bedtime

Feb 8, 2013

It is all to easy when living alone to head for bed immediately after watching a gruesome murder mystery on TV.  I don’t recommend it!

In recent years I have developed a repertoire of beautiful pastimes for 15 minutes or so last thing at night.

Tonight it is a clip of what I consider to be one of the world’s most beautiful places: Sainte Chappelle in Paris.

You might appreciate this 4 minute savouring of the height of Gothic beauty, with Denis McNamara‘s guidance.

Then, sleep well!
