Feeling our Oats

Posted by on April 17, 2013

There are lots of things that can contribute to feeling full of energy and joy. The two I think of most immediately are 1) the warmth of Spring and 2) the pleasure of being surrounded by love and humor.  My “niece” Renée arrived for a three-week visit on April 4, and soon after the weather, the flowers, the trees and the spirit of the city blossomed into full Spring. I no longer have to bundle up in sweaters and coats.  We can open the windows wide to hear the noises of the city: bells, sirens, music from the dance studios, arguments and laughter from apartments and sidewalks. We’re all here – open and overflowing – smiling and swatting flies.

In the Camargue, where Renée and I spent two days with Gudrun Bauer, language coach and Camarguaise extraordinaire, we found the flamant rose (pink flamingoes) and the emblematic white horses frisking about in the fields and waterways.
