It was my 2008 book with my pages of seagulls from Port Clyde, Maine! Serendipity? Psychic event? I had been thinking strongly of these pages when, 2 days ago, I received a most beautiful postcard from my dear French penfriend, M. I had been thinking that I would love to show her those very pages, but had no idea which journal they were in! 5 years ago I had observed one lone gull down at the ferry landing, industriously procuring his breakfast. It was very early morning & it was just we two. How often do I remember to be still & to observe something or someone for an extended period of time? Not often enough! It leaves an impression when I do.
This postcard is called "La chaise bleue et ses sept mouettes." "Seven Seagulls for One Blue Chair", photo by Pierre-Hugues Polacci in the series called "Un autre regard sur la Côte d'Azur". "Another Glance at the Côte d'Azur".
Two penfriends, deux correspondantes, share two coastlines & two languages.
