( For the visually challenged reader, this image shows a view of the Eiffel Tower at night when it is illuminated in golden light. In the foreground you can see the Seine river reflecting the lights)

It was always an awesome sight watching the lights cascade up the tower like a reverse golden waterfall. It was one of the familiar landmarks and subject of many a romantic movie.
It was a September night, nothing special, and the lights shone out into the clear skies as they’d always done.
It wasn’t until pictures were developed and enhanced that people saw it, a shaft of light that shot through the top of the tower, like a burning thread through the eye of a needle.
No-one traced where it had originated, and none could locate where the stream had ended.
But the experts confirmed it was from that night that things started to change.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
