"Of Gardens and Contentment" Part 1
The move was sudden. It was a difficult decision. We chose a small condominium where we could plant our own tiny garden if the Condominium Board passed on the plans. A garden had been taking shape in my mind all winter long. The ground began to thaw, the mourning doves began cooing, and I knew exactly what I wanted. I bought the plants, got out my garden tools and knew I had a day of bliss ahead of me.

"Of Swallows and Babies”
We were visiting family in France one spring, and we took a vacation down to the Southern part along the Dordogne River. I was excited when I saw that our ancient cottage was only 15 minutes from the village of Carrenac, the place where Fenelon had been banished to in the 17th century. This Christian Brother had been the Spiritual Advisor to the women in the court of Louis XIV.
