Month Since Mortagne

Mortagne au Perche, France Summer Evening.  Heaven smiles upon our photograph.  © Canned Cumulus 2012Paradise A month has passed since my time in Mortagne- a month since I walked the narrow medieval streets of the county seat my ancestor helped to build.

He left for the New World in 1634.  I returned for a day in May, soaking in the French countryside sun, envisioning my ancestral countrymen coming home from their fields outside the city walls. 

I run at dawn through the patchwork fields, through the winding streets, breathing heavy on saturated air-

my soul recognizes a piece of itself.
