In Twenty Five Words or Less...


Been home for over two weeks now, time to put it away. The fact is, it was my experience and to try to convey it to others is like offering water without a vessel... it just doesn't hold for others the way it did for me. That's the reality of such a trip... the polite 'did you have a nice time' requires a simple, unadorned answer... that's all they're asking for, don't even bother with pictures. Blogs, once thought to be the answer, are also excessive for most needs. So tuck it away in the place one keeps such things and try to come up with a suitable, brief answer.

"Spring in rural France, away from the tourist attractions was just what I needed to reaffirm my belief that the best things in life are free... or at least don't require tickets, lines or crowds." Okay, that's thirty five words... I'll work on it. Of course it wasn't free when one counts the air fare and other stuff... but the actuality was that the day to day simplicity, beauty and discovery fulfilled me more than any museum or other trampled attraction could. That's my take on it.

'Nuff said... future posts will leave the adventure behind. Well, maybe a reference here and there, but life goes on and I'd best try to catch up... rejoin the sheep being herded down the road...

You gave us such great groups of photos. I love the combinations you used. I have no doubt that you are not 'leaving it behind.' There'll be shapes, colors, textures and lines creeping into paintings for years to come. There will be no polite responses -- just some 'WOWs.'

I am not full, I have not heard enough. What is the matter with folks? Maybe they aren't really hearing at all. Don't lose your wonderful enthusiasm, let it stay fresh.

If your heart wants to expound farther, bet you have willing listeners who'll welcome it. I'm one.
