|My morning walk today, frost on the ground and the sun moving toward the mountains|
Today as I started my walk, I imagined sitting at the café in the main square and sipping coffee with friends. What a luxury that is. First, to gather with friends most mornings just to chat. Second, to have the time to linger over coffee and maybe a second one. To cross the square to the bakery and bring back a pain au raisin or a croissant abricot and break it apart, scattering the crumbs onto the sidewalk then shooing away the pigeons that eye the crumbs. How many mornings have I spent savoring coffee with friends? The pocket of my trench coat still holds three little chocolate squares that come with our morning coffees - just in case of emergency.
|Another morning walk, this one along the river on flat ground. |
|Stone built on stone|
|A glorious fountain|
I went on a hike with my friend Claudine
