Awaken to a New Year in France
Well, well,… Christmas has come and gone and look at us, smack bang in the middle of a new year! Bonne Annee mon amis! We have a new beginning to continue the same life as last year or introduce something new. I know it’s difficult for some of you to get out of the routine for many reasons but I’m asking you to just contemplate an alternate road or patch of grass or another window of opportunity and HOLD that thought.
Can you imagine yourself here on french grass in Flavigny perhaps, in the heart of Burgundy?
(You do remember my escapades on the trek for more than chocolate? go to http://myfrenchawakening.wordpress.com/tag/flavigney-sur-ozerain/ )
or take a peep down any one of the country roads you could be driving through on your next France adventure…
or look out from some other window- a french window. Come on! My french awakening sees no harm in discovering a new view which is very different from the one you’re seeing now perhaps?
Life is sometimes greener on the other side particularly if you’re travelling through the south of France…
or the north east corner… (remember Colmar? http://myfrenchawakening.wordpress.com/2011/01/02/awaken-to-a-new-year-in-colmar/ )
or from this window in the east, at Quemigny-sur-Seine, France…
and more views from country France from modern frames…
and ancient ones in eighth century stone as at Mont St Michel (remember Awaken to Mont St Michel? See http://myfrenchawakening.wordpress.com/tag/mont-st-michel/ )
And if you fancy yourself as more of a city mouse than a country mouse, you might appreciate looking out from the windows behind wrought iron balconies in Paris…
Or from that very special window in a beautiful french village in between.
The view’s not bad from here.
Give France a thought this year. It won’t disappoint.
Best Wishes, Therese Waddell
