Mais les vrais voyageurs sont ceux-là seuls qui partent
Pour partir; coeurs légers, semblables aux ballons,
De leur fatalité jamais ils ne s'écartent,
Et, sans savoir pourquoi, disent toujours: Allons!
But real travelers are those who leave
Just to leave; hearts light, like balloons,
Never turning from their mortality
And, without knowing why, always say: "Let's go!"
--Charles Baudelaire, "Fleurs du Mal"Read More
On October 3rd, we'll begin our October Writeaways with a week at the Chateau du Pin in the Loire Valley of France!
Imagine a week in a castle: fresh croissants from the boulangerie for breakfast, mornings spent writing and talking about what makes good writing, afternoon excursions to taste local wines, four-course dinners prepared by our fantastic Parisienne chef, Anne Villeday, and after-dinner drinks around the fire.
Can you tell we're looking forward to it?Read More
