Ahhh....cafe au lait.....the real thing.



We have arrived in France.  
Hours spent passing through gateways in the sky...passing through clouds of time, sunsets and stars which sing our way.   

We fold our wings and land into a village called Soreze.  An hour south of Toulouse in the south of France.  Can anyone question the that magic exsists?

There is a little cafe right down the street....wifi and cafe au lait.  Ahhhh....Oh la la....
This is where you can find me in the morning.....
Here are photos of the 350 year old house we are staying in.....



We went off on a road trip yesterday.  Fields and fields and unbelievable fields of sunflowers past their prime, heads bowed after being held high and proud for so long in the heat of summer.

And yet I did manage to find one last Sunflower, sung to by the bees in grattiude, I'm sure.

My heart swells with the beauty of the old towns, with people still living in homes that have protected so many over the many hundreds of years.....but give me an deserted ruin any time and my heart stops!   Look what we found....hiking up and through fields of bowed sunflowers to loose ourselves in history, memory and dreams of past lives.....


an entrance in.....
what's left of the ceiling....
an ancient door, now leaning against the wall...
Wow...look at this.  It must have been the ceiling for a Madonna statue...
Still....you can see the beautiful yellow...the blue stars.....I want to hold it in my hands, but I must only keep it in my heart.

So that was yesterday and today....I'm not sure where we are off to....
but I'll keep you posted.
Ahhhh.....life is good.
Tout droit tout droit tout droit...........just keep on going.....
