Springtime Sunset from our deck

As departure approaches, and normal life begins shading into travel mode, we are always astonished and gratified by the wonders of Where We Live. I suppose it's what always calls us back here, despite the wonderful places we visit. 

This trip, the wonders are mostly focused in Southwestern France, sometimes called the Midi, sometimes Languedoc for the langue d'Oc once spoken here, sometimes by a variety of names (the Vermillion Coast, the Midi-Pyrénées, the Garonne, Aquitaine, Burgundy), a land of wine and pâté, rivers ... and not, we are told, as many tourists as in Provence to the east.

Apart from being the most beautiful year-around place in the world (no bias, and yes, I've been everywhere else!) this little village has become an amazingly rich nexus for juicy happenings that feel good to us. Just a month ago, we were held in profound, astonishing, awe while a team of Tibetan monks from Gaden Shartse Phukhang Monastery sand-painted, grain by grain, a sacred mandala, and then dissolved it.

Then, just last Saturday evening, our friends and master musicians Gene Parsons, Gwyneth Moreland, Steven Bates, and David Hayes performed a delicious concert in our little jewel box venue.
