Encore une fois

"How hard it is to escape from places. However carefully one goes they hold you - you leave little bits of yourself fluttering on the fences - like rags and shreds of your very life." ~Katherine Mansfield

I'm back after a very long hiatus.

I made this blog private two years ago because I had reason to believe it was being used to "spy" on me,* but I've revived it mainly due to the hole in my heart.

No, I haven't developed a medical condition over the past two years; it's simply been far too long since I've been in la belle France. A two-week honeymoon in French Polynesia certainly did help, but that was nearly three years ago. Our economy is so bad that I'm beginning to worry that I'll never make it back to my beloved castles, cheeses, pastries and wines.

It is my hope that writing about France regularly again will help with my heartache.

*I think I have my own private Javert!

I'm spying on you right now. I can't believe that's what you're wearing. No lie, my word ver is "fatrear." I think Blogger is trying to tell me something.

That's hilarious! I think I should go comment on a bunch of blogs until my word ver says "bigbottom". Or maybe "sexfarm".
