Happiness Update #4

I’m sorry, I’m sorry! I fell off the train tracks for doing these everyday, but I do remember a couple from this week. It was midterm week so I think everyone gets a free pass for falling off train tracks.

49. Have you ever stopped and thought about how wonderful it is to be in control of your body’s movements? I was climbing the steps up to the top of the village of Lacoste. I was breathing hard because it was hot and the road was so steep and broken. But my legs just kept pumping and my knee bent when they had to and I never fell down.

48. We have sucky coffee in the United States. The French know how to make the perfect Cafe au Lait. There’s a reason why that drink’s name is in French.

47. My host mother surprised my house mate and I by buying us a jar of nut butter for our trip to Giverny tomorrow. Peanut butter for me and almond butter for Rebecca.

46. Today was the last day of landscape painting en-plein-air. Looking back on all the paintings I did and all that time I spent basking in the sun is evidence that the experience has brought forth fruit. Some pictures to commemorate the final day:

Early morning in the landscape is the best time to watch the fog roll out.
