  • What’s in the Garden?
    Palais de Versailles Sunlight filled the palace’s cavity, shimmereing on the decorative gold moldings. A distant sound, barely perceptible, echoed. Marie Antoinette, in her flimsy nightdress, caught her breath. What could that be? The sound came again. Secret column She looked around, she saw no one, nothing, but for her reflection.

  • Those Bumpy, Tumbly, Cobbly Cobblestones
    If the shoe fits (into the cobblestones) wear it. Women do it in Italy, in France, in Canada and in the USA. In fact, I saw them do it in Portugal last summer. They do it all over the world. Yep.
