hi Fanny, again congratulations! thanks for emailing me your address; now whilst I take care of his envelope, the Philosopher is bidding his adieux to all the beings in the Dwelling with copious amounts of wine, beer and assorted beverages.....one hopes he arrives without a hangover; fortunately for you he can sleep it off during his journey to France!

quite Maris, staying in Europe, France no less, as he is very interested in politics he is so looking forward to living in the country of En Marche

In the magic space inside your mind space, I imagine many creatures with much to say....one beautiful moth story is forming. I hear it...

Tres bien Philosopher that you are going to live with Fanny in France. Congratulations Fanny on your new friend. I'm sure you will both have many wonderful adventures.

I hold good memories of a week spent in France many, many years ago. We visited museums, many historical sites and restaurants when we were there in the 1970's. For me, and maybe it will be the same for you Philosopher, my most lasting and endearing memories are those of walking to little cafes and shops, buying a piece of fabulous cheese, eating wonderful bread and drinking excellent wine, later coffee, etc. I have not traveled much in Europe but of the places that I have been, what holds in my heart are the small, daily chance meetings, chatting to people even when you cannot speak their language very well, glimpses of daily life- these are what give me the essence of a country.
