After the Fire

Joanna Robertson reflects from Paris on the days after the Notre Dame fire.

"For many Parisians, it's Notre Dame's constancy that's so reassuring" writes Joanna Robertson. "Pass by before dawn, she’s waiting there. Or late at night, amidst the deserted streets, her dark form is holding steady. Notre Dame was inviolable".

Joanna Robertson reflects on how the fire is changing that taken-for-granted sight.
