One door


There is one door to open, another to walk through and finally the one that closes behind.


I am becoming increasingly aware of Arles taking form around me as my time here is most likely drawing to an end.


The details of my daily life, the ones that I have stopped seeing, are sprouting into bas-relief as I reach out towards the handle on the door ahead...


...wondering where it will take me. How far and fast I will go.

Off I go to America, to visit my wonderful family there and to have a change of air. While I have prepared many posts photographically, they are yet to be written, let alone posted, so if for any reason there is silence on these air waves on the days to come, not to worry but please stay tuned...

With my Best from Arles,
Heather

Hello Heather:

We somehow or other sense change is in the air, perhaps reading between the lines more than we should. Whatever, we do so trust that all is well with you and that whatever the future, things will work out for the best. Take great care and stay in touch. J&L, xxx

Our paths almost crossed as I just returned from visiting my family. Have a wonderful trip and perhaps, you will set foot in New York :)

Oh, Good Lord.........you were right, Heather....June has indeed come around sooner than seemed likely in January. I can't recall when your lease is up; isn't it this coming month?

Happy travels, of course,

David Terry

Heather, safe travels and I hope you have a beautiful visit with your family. I'm just thrilled for you and know how much you are reveling in your visit.

You've brought us so much beauty from Arles - I can't imagine anyone seeing it and serving it up in quite the way you do (which is why I'm a big advocate for the book business). Watching you step through that door makes me wistful, but I know you fill bring your particular point of view and eye for beauty with you! XOXO

We, too, are about to step through 'that door' and you couldn't have described my feelings any more aptly than you did with this post. I will be writing about what we find on the other side of that door, and I only hope I can do it as beautifully as you've been describing your experiences. Have a great visit with family and I look forward to hearing about your next adventures. . .

Safe travels, my friend. I am, of course, (and perhaps you are too) wondering where you will land next. Enjoy the time with your family. It is precious.

Have a safe and happy journey to our shared homeland.

Joan McKniff said...

Happy trails. For all that is insane here, there is still far more that is wonderful, beautiful, hopeful, and openly sharing.

Laura said...

Safe travel on your trip the US Heather. Enjoy your time with family and friends!
The new door of opportunity and change will be ready to open when you return to France.

Vickie Lester said...

Why then, you must be here... How wonderful! Welcome home!

Blue skies, dear Heather! I hope that your flights are smooth in every way and that you relish every minute of your homecoming (including by sleeping and drinking water to recover from the travel and time change). We will be thinking of you, happily. Fondly, Leslie in Oregon

Hello Heather, I was just reading the May 27th on-line issue of "Provence Post" by Julie Mautner, there is a spread on the artifacts that were discovered in the Rhone, the boat and the bust of Julius Caesar and the other pieces ... Remi's pictures were used!!! (and credited, I might add) It was so much fun to recognize his name there. Thanks for all your wonderful pictures, both of you. You're spectacular!
