Les vrai voyageurs - real travelers

Mimi Herman

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"

On our way to France and Italy

Mimi Herman

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?
