Today delivered a bright and cheerful blue-dappled day in the city but there were dark forces abroad. Three grim reapers were seen around town this afternoon complete with scythes and flowing dark hooded robes. They were spotted at the beginning of their jaunt in the dank, dark alleys of Left Bank; then again at the library hitting the romance and murder mystery sections; later at New World doing a spot of shopping; and taking some air on the waterfront at dusk (photo credit Dominika Zielinska).
They were harvesting more squeals and smiles than souls and seemed to be a hit with the tourists.
To what do we owe this psychopomp?
