Merci Beaucoup!

Monet's Water Lilies at Giverny

Monet's Water Lilies at Giverny

We are back in Paris, after two days in Margency, and one night over in Loughton.  It’s time to say thank you to some very good friends, who all played a part in showing me how wonderful people can be everywhere you go.  So, here comes the merci beaucoup!

Phillipe and Hugette, for your warmth and hospitality in opening your home, feeding us amazing food, and treating us like family.

Micheline and Alain, for your attempts at making me feel more at home by practicing your English, and for wonderful conversations about shared interests.

Kai, for welcoming us into your home, barely knowing us, and treating us like royalty and family, all at once.

Alan, for just being you.  Oh, and for toning it down!  I loved the views of London from the top of that hill in Loughton, too.

Andy, for riding the train all the way down from Lincoln to St. Pancras, just to have lunch with us.  What a treat that was!  I really enjoyed hearing your teaching stories, and being reminded that there is lots of goodness in the world, everywhere we go.

I must say, I will miss you all when we go back home…but we sill have one more day…

Be well, and at peace,

Phil

    I love getting to see the real lilies! My friend once made me a recipe that Monet used to make…you should try it if you can eat lots of butter without worrying.
