He was sitting out the front of a Parisian cafe. There was a small band opposite. Drums, violins, accordian and vocals.
The music was gentle and infused with a dance. A hop on that beat, a twirl there and...yes, a skip and clap when the voilin did that sharp trill. The vocals were in French. He couldn't understand a word, but it seemed happy. Like the song one would play when two very shy people finaly got married. They would dance to this music quietly, glancing nervously at each other.
He sipped his green tea and contined to listen.
