Dance me to the end of love

A post from nearly two years ago – places I have loved and a lady who stopped me in her tracks … Dance me to the end of love

Half Baked In Paradise

As previously noted, we drive a lot, little dog and I a motley pair and better still a trio completed by the husband with two brains.  One day not so long ago we set off for Grenoble at around 5 a.m.  We go to Grenoble reasonably frequently since HB2 has associations with IRAM (Institut de Radioastronomie Milliemetrique) and indeed worked there for 9 years throughout the 1980s.  He had a house in the Belledonne mountains until recently and still has a bank account at Caisse D’Epargne in the village of Uriage les Bains.  That we had to go TO the bank to reset his PIN will tell you that this particular bank is a teeny bit perochial  – this is a 5-6 hour drive and we can’t use the nearer branches in Cantal because Caisse d’Epargne is entirely localised.  Hey ho.

    Good Wednesday Morning, Osyth, from Key West!

    Your story surely did take the reader through a full gamut of emotions.

    Joyful reading about your trip travelouge to the bittersweet story about one woman’s day-to-day survival of unrelenting grief of her beloved granddaughter.

    And then finally, coming full, circle with a amused smile at learning croissants may or may not be Viennese and receiving a speeding ticket.

    Thank you for the ride!

    • Thank you, Sadie – I truly appreciate your support. My leg is slowly improving …. Patience is not my greatest virtue but I’m trying to be sensible! And you! I do hope you are getting back to full strength and agility ☺️

      • No… I’m speaking literally. I had something I wanted to say, but the Comment Keeper (like zoo keeper) won’t let me finish a comment. I don’t dare go any further. This is Hilarious 🆘

      • That’s ludicrous! A WordPress gag …. Feel free to comment on either the original or the reblog – your narrative is always valuable

  5. I had a few challenges recently with my blog and unusual dragging motion on posting and even writing. Strange there is a lot of this going round.
    Hope you are healed and looked to see where my own comment was. I think it is either deja vu or I really was here on this post before. Hugs, Robin

  7. Your title made me think of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” and this Yiddish-language version, which I really love: https://youtu.be/XH1fERC_504

    • Thank you. I would never have found that. Never. Known it existed. Now it will become part of my playlist. I love it. Really love it. Of course the title was wholly inspired by Cohen as so much of what churns in my mind is, I suppose.
