au revoir

 my dear readers as i tried to make my way into town on the dirt road,  my heart was captured by the beauty of an autumn morning as it found itself engulfed by fog.  as i walked along the road, i tried to notice every leaf and it's colour, every drop of dew and living thing , it all took my breath away. i was captivated by a web jewelled with drops of rain, how i wish i could gift such a thing to my mother, a necklace worthy of the loveliest of heroines. 

i will carry this magical morning to remind me of where i will return too as i make my way to France.  i am leaving in a few days to assist aran and stephanie in the loveliest of places Dordogne, i think it is going to be magical. then i will do what i have craved for so long, return to the streets of paris, where my feet will walk along old cobblestones, step into cafes, sit on park benches and  remember what once was, while making moments i will never forget. i will visit with family members i have never met in person and embrace all the goodness that comes from such an encounter.

 i will miss les animaux i am constantly telling myself that they will be okay(please be okay) because they are in good care. know that i will take you with me for i have never once saw something lovely that i did not whisper "dear readers can you see, i will show you". i will be away for a little while when i return there will be a big threshold to cross, but for now i will just say thank you for being so kind to me your comments i  treasure
au revoir et a bientot! (see you soon)

* the fog is so beautiful and magical here on the hill

...This post made my heart as heavy as the fog in your photos. Such absolutely stunning images paired with you leaving, you are coming back aren't you?

..."i was captivated by a web jewelled with drops of rain, how i wish i could gift such a thing to my mother, a necklace worthy of the loveliest of heroines."
