Good morning all,
It's been a long couple of days here at the house. But, YAY!, the shoot when really well last night (I'll post pictures later in the week). But now, I could use a quick vacation. (unfortunately, my work schedule is not going to permit one . . . lol) so this morning, I'm running away to a wonderful summer in France.
This charming 13th century chateau is near St Cyprien on the Dordogne River. It belongs to friends of the director of my chamber choir and whilst the group was on tour in France in 2000 . . . it served as our home base for over a week.
I can't tell you how amazing it was to awake each morning, stumble downstairs to scalding hot coffee with cheese and baguettes, and sort out the day's entertainment to fill the time before singing that evening's concert. Some days were snooping through antique stores, some days were canoeing on the Dordogne, I think we must have toured every castle in a 20 mile radius, and one day the whole group sang the complete score to Gilbert and Sullivan in the music room. It remains one of the best summers of my adult life.
Where do you go when you need a mental break ?
