Connie and Dave are in France
We are having a marvellous time! Brittany was a wonderland. I have gained several pounds and could care less! The food is beyond belief, the hospitality as well. Franseza and Aouregan took us on the full tour, then we rented a car and explored the North Coast: This keyboard is entirely different from home qnd I feel vey silly. David is off on a bicycle adventure and I haveebeen walking around Montpellier eating qnd shopping. Weather is cloudy and warm. We have had rain, but missed the flood last week.
We qre now staying right off The Plaza de Comedie in Montpellier. It is exciting and fun.Gwenn had dinner with us last night and we will see her again tonight! She is doing great andworking hard.
I send our love and bisous!
As the sun was coming up this morning it made it clear how low the water is in Summit Lake at the moment. We've been having hot, sunny weather -- it has brought everyone back onto the lake for swimming and jetskiing past the time when you would normally expect the autumn rain to've begun. However, I will say I have no "normal" to go by here as in the what -- 5? years I've been here each year has been completely oddball and unique. I was staggered at how beautiful the lakecam images were this morning, too -- going from mist to barely-perceptible tree lines to clarity. I used to like summer, but now any heat is devastating to me. In 1979 I was in Australia all "summer" -- northern hemisphere summer -- then moved to Washington. I felt like I'd missed not only the whole summer of 1979, but every summer after that since Washington, to someone moving from Delaware, didn't have a summer. I have, due to the MS and long residency here, changed my damn tune now. The winter rocks -- it's not very cold and the wildlife isn't scared off by jetskis.
Read a little about composer Tim Brock in the OFS newsletter -- back a billion years ago when I was married, my painting studio in my back garden was next to his composing studio. I'd hear him tinkling away -- I don't know what he heard from my side, but I'd rather not know. Probably people shouting. So when I read his name I feel a stirring of interest -- I am indeed a strange one. To me he's included in the general packet of people and things associated in some way with me, I reckon. It must be 6 degrees of separation-ish ways things become related, by chance or design -- in the flimsiest manner or the most solid.
