FOMO - or my best new addresses for Arles
So, people have been talking about "the next wave" of Arles since I first moved there in 2005. My then neighbor said that folks were saying the same when she first moved there some twenty odd years prior to that. And...letting out a giant exhale... rien ....
So, people have been talking about "the next wave" of Arles since I first moved there in 2005. My then neighbor said that folks were saying the same when she first moved there some twenty odd years prior to that. And...*letting out a giant exhale*...rien...nothing happened.

Counting back to light
It feels like we will never be the same sometimes. I understand. Because we won't and we aren't, already. How our life changes and changes us, so swiftly, every day, so that we are swept up, often mercifully unaware, just breathing, moving through. A wise f...
A wise friend counseled me not long ago that sometimes, there are no answers. I wanted so desperately to understand what had happened in my life, to get that knowledge all under control so that I could heal but I couldn't. Because the answers were not mine to give. And finally, I can only be ...

Summer treats - La Fabrique Givrée & "Markets of Provence"
Long-time friends here know that I can be a bit squirrelly - no, not just in the sense of being loopy, although there is that too - but I have been known to tuck special things away to save for a later date. So when my beautiful Mom ( top photo, one month a...

Little by little, the bird makes its nest

I walk in the mornings. Somehow I knew that it would save me, my body moving forward in space while my heart was reaching back over the ocean. My shoes are old but barely used, bought on an assignment with Remi in Vancouver many years ago with the aim of exploring further afield.

A perfect vacation rental in Saint Germain des Prés - Paris!
Are you ready to dream a little dream with me? And to perhaps make that dream a reality? Today, I am very, very excited to share with you what I think is the perfect apartment vacation rental in the best neighborhood that Paris has to offer...Saint Germain ...
As they have only very recently decided to start renting out their apartment, you will be one of the first to know of this address...one that Anthony calls a "petit endroit secret sous les toits de Paris" - yes, indeed... I have long been a believer of renting out apartments rather than camping ...

Growing oak
Today is my birthday. I want, I need for it to be a really quiet one. As with many things of late, I notice that it is the "the first without Remi" in many years. That is hard. And in writing that, I understand all of the sudden why my Sister has been so in...
So there will be gifts despite my saying that, "You all do enough for me as is" and if the weather permits, maybe we will move the table out to the expansive oak tree under whose reaching arms my Mother and Leonard were married not so long ago. But it is to another such tree, further down the ...

I woke up at 4:30am in a cold sweat, my sheet had somehow wrapped itself tightly around my body. Mummylike, immobile. When I blinked, my eyelids ached and slowly my awareness drifted down through my bones until I accepted that I was ill. The last thing that I had read before turning out the ...

Thank you so much! I am just seeing this now and wish you a lot of courage as you go through this process. It isn't easy, I know. But you know, save for the people and the dogs, I don't miss the things. It is a good lesson.
