Almost French

In Paris, I really do like to try and do nothing…

but that’s impossible.

Aussie Sarah Turnbull’s memoir “Almost French” tells of her adventures in moving to the other side of the planet with the Frenchman she married.  Reading her story was reminiscent of my own even as it transported me to the minutiae of Parisian life I may never experience as a tourist.

This Powerful Goddess also shares our story of braving a new life where love led her.  I recognize the courage it took for her to trust her choices from the first moment she decided to follow destiny, and then over and over again through life’s baths and dry spells over the years. Who can really know the strength it takes to face the challenges of solitude and personal reinvention far from supportive family and friends?  Here’s to the brave!

    I really like the clawfoot bathtub. It reminds me of the house I grew up in here in LA. Built in 1924 it had many interesting architectural characteristics one being a clawfoot bathtub. I didn’t like seeing it go during re-model. So my photo of choice this week is number two with this Goddess lounging in the tub and the splash of color from the roses.

    It would be foolish of me to say any country other than France; wouldn’t you agree? Sharky! 😉
