The Duck, Duck Goose, Goose Tour
with The Wild Irishman
France 2008

Gascony and Provence are so distinct from each other--like California to Oregon, I guess and it has been the experience of a lifetime to be here with the Christ Child.

It was chilling to watch the bulls on range in the Camarogue in Provence and observe the striking resemblance to the bulls on the walls of the pre-historic caves in Gascony's Montignac. As we walked the passageways of the French Vatican in Avignon, we could feel the presence of the Catholic Church, past and present. When we roamed the streets of Arles, looking for that definitive shot, we knew we would see Van Gogh at a table in a cafe around the next corner. Such a timeless, sensual, spiritual and special experience this has been. Such a rich and humbling thing to be here with the roadtrip buddy of a lifetime, the Christ Child. He and I have been going on road together since back in the day and somehow this feels definitive. But I am sure, as I always tell him, the best is yet to come.

On Location
Sarlat, France

Where have I been that I've missed out on so much!!! I loved these posts, and the photo with all that lavender. I think I'm going to plant myself a field.
