‘Twas the Night before the Paris Book Fair and… I’ll spare you my rhymes. I was never a very good poet!
If you are in the Paris area, please stop by and see me at the Salon du Livre this weekend. I will be at the “Mariposa and U.S. Publishers” stand (S76) on Friday from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. and on Monday from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m.
As I’m preparing for the book fair today, I figured I would keep this post short on words but long on photos that spell springtime. It is the first day of spring after all. Finally!
This past weekend, we visited family in the town of Crecy-La-Chapelle, the “Venice” of the county called Seine et Marne. It is called as such because much of the village is built right along the river. A claim to fame? The painter Corot once lived there.
Here is the story in pictures...

Me, smiling because we no longer have to wash clothes at the "lavoir" along the river!

A lovely passage

Those little white dots are geese enjoying the warm weather!
The town church, a view through the trees!
Our aunt's delicious floating islands for dessert. Sunshine in the plate!
