Wayne, please trace your journey from Texas to France for us.
Ok, warp speed version… Dallas born… NYC bound 92’… Paris 2018-2019… A unique moment in time for us as a family to either seize the moment or look back in regret.
What is your favorite thing about living in Paris and what do you miss most about your home state of Texas?
Paris—this is tough because I want to be mindful to all. I think the one thing one possesses is the fortitude to exist in such a place of great history. Parisian pride extends to the furthest arrondissements. Paris brings out great emotion in all who dwell.
Honestly I miss the heat of Texas! Dallas where I grew up, always had that unexpected cultural X factor, especially downtown. I was a DJ for many years. The Stark Club alone was my stomping ground where I was the occasional DJ, and my dear friend Go Go Mike Dupriest was the resident DJ. I remember one New Years Eve he was struck down with appendicitis so it was left to me for the whole night! That energy and that sound system, priceless. In addition there is that “Je ne sais quoi” about being a Texan.
