My thoughts are many miles away

Between a two-day trip to Paris next week for work and my departure for the USA in less than three weeks, my mind is racing over a lot of ground besides the fetching Aveyron countryside and weird parts of Rodez.

And in looking over my last months of blogging, I am surprised how many posts haven't dealt with Aveyron at all. Since la rentrée, I've spilt a lot of virtual ink about Albi, Paris, Montpellier, Paris again, Toulouse, encore Paris...

Soon I will be writing from even farther afield, reviving And So Forth to blog all summer from Olympia, Washington.

Is my mind elsewhere? Possibly.

Is this my last written post for France Profonde before next September? Could be.

See you on Wordless Wednesday! And if you're bored on Sunday, you can create an image of yourself like my new avatar here.

Enjoy your summer holiday!
Cute avatar...don't tempt me - I have enough to do... Well, maybe just a few minutes...

Katiez -- Thanks for your comments. I have been sorely ignoring the comment department on certain blogs, especially the ones like yours that post profusely! I'm sure I will catch up this summer in the USA.

Awww it's so nice to be on the brink of the summer holidays. I'm so jealous!

I'll definitely try the avatar-maker as I'm a bit bored with mine. Watch this space :-)

I just found your blog via Marie Reed's blog. I love your photography and the idea of Wordless Wednesdays is great. It should be adopted world wide, imagine a day without all the chatter - alone with your thoughts - scary! I've bookmarked your blog and look forward to your posts. David

David -- I picked up on Wordless Wednesday from another expat blogger. There is actually a centralized site for the posts, but I usually don't bother to link to mine there.

It's interesting how some of the shots elicit very different reactions depending on the viewer.

Happy Father's Day to you, and a safe trip over . . .

Wherever and whenever you post, just continue to do so!

Enjoy yourself! I feel I won't be blogging as much for a while either... just here and there. Kids and work need to take front seat right now.
