Spring fling in St Paul de Vence

Spring has taken her time to settle in here in Nice. Despite the psychotic periods of grey-then blue-then grey skies, I have been working hard at maintaining my sanity. D and I are working on a huge renovation project — we bought our first apartment in January — and most of my free time is […]

Wednesday was a little anti-climatic after the events of Monday evening.  I went searching for inspiration.  Lucky for me I was in Paris, one of my favourite cities, and I had some free time on my hands.  Here’s a list of things I heard on Wednesday before heading south.    “You are a tableau, a work of […]
