Saints Cosmas and Damian were two twin brothers physicians and early Christian martyrs. They are widely popular in Brazil and said to be patron saints and protectors of children. Their feast day is September 26th and, on this day, Saints Cosmas and Damian’s devotees prepare bags of candy and sweets to give to the children on the streets as a way to pay tribute and say thank you.

Although I am not a Catholic, I personally like Saints Cosmas and Damian very much. I think that their history is nice (being physicians that never accepted money to treat people) and that the whole feast day celebration is happy and wholesome, and that brings me joy.

(I also love candy, although I am an adult now, so I no longer get candy bags)

Arc De Triomphe In Quiet Paris Midnight Moment - IMRAN™

It was getting close to midnight in Paris, one of my favorite cities in the world, as I was walking back to the Hyatt Regency hotel nearby. The Arc De Triomphe is always a beautiful sight to capture, from a countless variety of points you can see it from. I would have waited a little longer to take the handheld smartphone photos which went into creating this panorama, but there was no guarantee the people in the distance would disperse by then. Even with the stragglers, and some just loitering, the grand historic monument was a poignant reminder of all that the world has seen and overcome. There was no way to avoid the construction and maintenance framing in front of the monument, but it was a good place to put my mark!
