The Meditation

Times are scary. Unpredictable and stifling with a dose of terror. Many people are turning to different types of self care to offset the negativity. Like meditation, for example. Personally, meditation hasn’t ever worked for me. My brain hasn’t figured out how to shut up. Instead it bounces with incessant chatter: “Did I water the…… Continue reading The Meditation

The Trees Are Alive With Music

I’ve got a couple of really exciting trips planned for the coming year. They’ll inevitably be cancelled though, because of the impending apocalypse COVID-19. In my attempt to avoid people (surprisingly easy for a non-peopley person such as myself) I’ve been spending time going through my Google albums.

Thursday Doors – Bayeux

I thought it might be fun to take a look at the same door, from both sides. You may recall seeing these grand doors from my B is for .. Bayeux Cathedral post.

An added bonus was the view of the famous ‘Needle’ rock…… Continue reading E is for .. Les Jardin d’Etretat

In this installation of my biweekly Alphabet series, I’m sharing with you some photos taken at Bayeux Cathedral – or Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Bayeux.

l’Abbaye d’Ardenne Massacre

It’s Remembrance Day here in Canada and I thought I’d share with you a story that I learned while visiting Normandy, France. Earlier this year marked the 75th anniversary of D-Day. It’s been 75 years since the Allied forces landed in Normandy under Operation Overlord, taking part in the largest seaborne invasion in history, and…… Continue reading l’Abbaye d’Ardenne Massacre
