Today was a driving day to Angers for school which normally means a short night’s sleep and an early morning start. Kids to the train station then off I go….
So without further adieu, here are…
- I hadn’t even realized it was supposed to be happening but as I was driving out of town, newscasters were talking about the Super Blood Wolf Moon lunar eclipse happening right at that moment. I looked up and only a sliver was visible. Over the next two hours, I saw the full moon gradually appear over my westward drive. Had it not been a teaching day, I would’ve missed it.
- I noticed that someone left the best compliment in a review of my book “Paris, You Take My Breath Away”. They said ” I have never visited the city but the stories made me feel I was there with the author.” That was exactly my goal while writing it. I’m glad that the very first reviewer picked up on & mentioned it.
- On my way home from teaching, I stopped to finish lunch in Brissac-Quincé. There are a couple of picnic tables on a terrace overlooking the Chateau de Brissac (photo above) and I’ve stopped there before. If you’ve got to stop some-where… it’s a pretty good place to stop. The early afternoon sun was bright, but in that hazy, winter sort-of way. (Winter mid-day sun is not at all the same as summer mid-day sun… it’s delightful). Such stops allow me to breathe on an otherwise long drive.
