Each and every person I have met while writing my blog has been a happy experience. I feel so fortunate to have many of you as friends, to share our lives together be it through this window on the blog or by meeting you. I love when you come to France and I have the pleasure of sharing my family, Provence and the brocantes with you. This latest adventure with the Muse is no exception. Myrna and Marianne are from my hometown in Willows and Barbara I met last year.
While visiting Lourmarin we ran into my friends Jean and Nathalie who have a beautiful antique shop in Lourmarin, and Gary who is my friend Ching's husband at the town's market buying bread, later in the day we saw Odile at her shop in l'Isle sur la Sorgue, and then John and Camy in Lacoste at the village art show. One of my favorite things to do is to connect people, and today felt like a whirlwind of worlds coming together.
Provence, the markets, the shutters, the cobblestones, the bakeries, the markets, the day to day life of the village and the countryside which is simply
waiting to take you into a life that only seems like a dream.
This evening as we walked back from the village to our guest house we came to a stone terrace that overlooked the Luberon valley. Stretching out before us under the luminous full moon the cherry trees ready to bloom, the toiled land ruffled moist, the lavender longing for July, the first iris, the birds singing their last song of the day while the wind teasingly drowned them out. I opened my arms wide and prayed let this wind blow through me cleanse me, let the full moon's light led the way and may I too be like the aching fertile ground ready for the seeds of tomorrow to bloom bright and giving.
Thank you, dear readers, blog friends, and those of you who have come to visit me.
Today is a wonderful day and may tomorrow be another day of celebrating you.
