This is one of the arcades that define the cloister at the Fontevraud abbey. The photo has special significance for us because the woman standing is our friend Cheryl who passed away several years ago. She was among the first of our friends to come and visit us after we moved here.

Cloître Sainte-Marie, Fontevraud abbey, September 2003.

My pulled back muscle feels much better now. The pain has faded to a soreness that is all but gone, depending on how I move. I knew that I was going to have trouble with that broken down lawnmower, but I'm very happy to have it gone.


  1. Glad your back has improved. Sweet photo. Always nice to be reminded of good friends this way.

  2. A lovely photo and so appropriate that Cheryl is in it.

  3. Glad to see Cheryl, she was such a nice person. She loved owls!

  4. Cheryl's memory is a blessing. Glad your back is better and the lawmmower is gone.

  5. mitch, yup.

    bettyann, thanks.

    chm, yes, she did!

    evelyn, me too!

  6. Oh if the walls could talk. I would have loved to hear the history and the many (?) people who walked there.


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
