Workshop in France: Places to Stay and How to Get There.

How to Get There:  Travel to Provence will likely not be a direct flight from any US airport, but  you can easily book a flight straight through to Marseille with a stop in Paris.   A quick flight from Paris will get you to the Marseilles airport, from where you can rent a car and easily…

France: The List.

In my last post I talked about the art workshop that I will be co-hosting in Provence along with artists Kirsten Stingle and Lynn Leahy.  With no further ado, here’s a sampling of what will be keeping us busy while we’re staying in lovely, amazing, heavenly Provence. The villa where the workshop will be held…

Who wants to go to France with me?

I love to travel.  I love art.  I adore France.  So imagine putting all three of those things together and then putting it out there to share with others…  and yes, this is actually happening.  From September 24-October 3 of 2020, this is indeed actually happening. Several months ago I was approached by a friend…

Paris in February.

I love Paris in the springtime. Okay, so I love Paris pretty much anytime.  And we weren’t exactly there in the springtime. February is not, by anyone’s standards, springtime in Paris.  But by some magical good fortune, the weather that we had while visiting allowed me to at least imagine that I was, in fact,…

Victoria, British Columbia.

Oh, how we love the Pacific Northwest! We seem to find a way to get out here at least once a year.  My daughter loves it more than any of us, though, and she’s actually been out twice, in the past two weeks.  Yes, once for her 18th birthday, to visit a dear friend from…

Aspen forests.

“I cannot remember the books I’ve read any more than the meals I have eaten; even so, they have made me.” Ralph Waldo Emerson There is a thought that’s been bubbling up in me lately, and it’s a comforting one.  Maybe it’s part of growing older- or, the nicer way of saying it- maturing.  Or…

New Mexico in the fall.

I am lucky enough to have gotten to live in New Mexico for nearly 4 years.  They weren’t 4 contiguous years; I actually lived there twice, due to being called back onto Active Duty after September 11th. I lived there long enough for it to become a part of me, but the truth is that…

San Francisco, September.

Sometimes I just crave a change of scenery.  Or perhaps it would be more accurate to say a change of temperature. It’s that time of year in Georgia when I find myself obsessively checking Weather.com, hoping that maybe, just maybe they had the forecast wrong and it won’t really be 91 degrees on the 5th…

Texas.

There are some places I am content with going just once.  There is an even smaller number of places that I really don’t want to go at all.  But then, there are some places I  travel to over and over again, not because they are exciting or exotic, but because they are home.  And home…

Richmond, June 2018.

I love it when I get to travel to new places.  Okay, so I love it when I get to travel to pretty much anywhere, but there is indeed something about discovering a new city that really makes me feel alive.  And the last weekend in June, I got to visit Richmond, Virginia, for the…
