Light Captured

The sudden light of cloudburst sprinkles and pastel hues and hopscotch lines creating rainbow designs is the question in the artists eyes while nature answers to her why’s; what is this Light?  Is it electromagnetic radiation that is visible and perceivable by the human eye?  Is it the colours between red and violet.   Does it have frequencies of terahertz, wavelengths and nanometers; equal to one billionth of a metre?  Is there is the sensation of perceiving light; it is brightness and sudden light; the medium of illumination…is that what makes sight possible. There is the illumination where it’s derived … Continue reading Light Captured

About Montmartre

We were in Montmartre again; there is a spirit there and it was if we were touched with life again. There, the gypsies were on the steps of Sacré Coeur as the temperature warmed up the day. We headed up to the top with our two little chihuahuas. Climbing with them we seemed to be a prominent feature following them up the steps. We were on everyone’s lips and they were adored by everyone.  We were finally back in Paris. It was summer. Love – amour – was our most popular subject for us. And Jim, my musician; where I … Continue reading About Montmartre

Le Voyage

Bonjour! I have always loved to travel. Sometimes it’s risky leaving home, going on an adventure to another country, then going through customs and then border patrols. Those are times when we share new loves and new conversations talking about settling somewhere new. What if”s are fun… refreshing. Perhaps looking for a job or even a new house anyone knows that it is risky. But, I think sometimes the heart overtakes reason and you just want to hit the road. We are on our way to Paris, just for a few days. Taking the ferry from Dover to Calais. We’re … Continue reading Le Voyage

Writing About Ideals

“A battle is to be conducted on behalf of liberty and freedom and against tyranny and oppression.” -Simon Bainbridge – Napoleon and English Romanticism  Actually, when writing, there might be purpose; Is is not the attention of the writer to the reader to engage them into a sense of excitement… Can one be  induced by tremendous courage when staring into the face of the enemy? During the time of the Napoleonic Wars; Spain was fighting against Napoleon.  France; had the most powerful army in the world, Sadly, not anymore.  Was Napoleon really that harsh? It’s not easy keeping your country … Continue reading Writing About Ideals

Poet Heart

Oh my poet-heart, is there still time for Paris Where the sweet wind wandering goes? Round each corner; the trees in airy flight Nights bathed in amber light. Low at my feet the winding sidewalks behold Valley and town drenched, entranced in deep repose. Has there ever existed such a more beautiful place… None with more appeal; even when it rains. But I know how softly on the music plays Where mosses creep; where our love is not far. A place where we are free Flinging forth our memories with ease Traveling to Paris in the car… With my poet … Continue reading Poet Heart

Still Paris

Why is it France that sometimes beckons me Paris whispers, I  wave, and she cries, Listening to sounds of her calling us back Waves of leaving never needing to say goodbye A last smile before into the oceans crept, Like waters blanketing tears that she wept Rushing forth but not without a trace, With you there, I first saw your beautiful face, Keeping in mind that when I forget  That I, long ago, Paris is where I first fell in love with you there. Paris still whispers, for we were there.  Continue reading Still Paris

Winter in France

Situated near the Pyrenees and located in close proximity to the Mediterranean coast. The climate of this French city is very wet with snow and a cold climate normally found in the Midi-Pyrenees area of southern France, alongside the banks of the Garonne River. The winter months in the Mid Pyreneese are inspiring, when daytime times during January and February average around 12°C, and on occasion reach more than 15°C, although the nights can feel a little chilly. Although the winter months between November and February are nothing like the cold, snowy affairs of northern Europe, the mountains do see … Continue reading Winter in France

They say travel is the cure for everything.  So it is here where we will spend the night for tomorrow we board the ferry; it’s our passage across the English Channel. In the 1730’s, as history goes, And Brighton England really only knows, When the town entered into anew, A phase of development it was, One which brought on rapid improvement And to some; say it’s fortunes too.
