Friday, 10 December 2010
I've travelled many hundreds of miles these last few weeks visiting family and friends with hardly a minute to myself. Driving back from Toulouse airport the other day my thoughts turned to down time and festive affairs. Without any travel itineries to occupy my thinking it dawned on me that it really is very near to Christmas.
My flight had been delayed by a couple of hours due to bad weather which left me covering the last twenty minutes drive in the dark cutting through Sarlat as this is the easiest route home.
This is the first time I've seen the lights here this year. Being delayed ain't so bad, I'd have missed them during daylight, that would have been my loss.
I feel that retail glow, I really do. The Marchand de Vin offering a veritable tonic.
The Patisserie creating confection too pretty to eat.
Still best I really love those lights.
Just one bright white, no neon glitz.
Strolling, window shopping, making plans, just be.
Roll on Christmas
