The pure pleasure of sharing what we hold to be true and beautiful with those who want to discover and claim it as their own. These last few days have been fabulous. The ease, the energy, the joy of being with Kelly, Laura, Barbara and Sue who love exploring and soaking their senses with Provence. They love the brocante, the countryside, the backroads, the everyday simplicity of daily life, the narrow streets, the cheese, the crusty bread and glass of wine, the two kisses on the cheek and everything that comes with being in France in the Autumn.
We drank champagne with a view of the Provencal landscape at sunset.
My friend Lisa invited us to her home and made dinner for the French Muse. A spectacular feast served on French antique dish ware.
Even though we venture around Provence everyday, absorbing beauty at every nook and cranny we are aware not to overload our senses. There is a mindfulness to taste the holy wonder of the moment. To indulge in the season freely given: The changing color of the leaves, the crispness in the air, the children playing on the square, the crumbs of a delicious lunch.
The friendship that buds with spending time together on each other's journey.
Thank you Ruth, Barbara, Laura, Sue and Kelly.
