After the rain…

…The sun comes out, warm in the light blue sky, drying the pavements, and new leaves on the trees. It is Wednesday, the day of children here in France, where they do not go to school.

My children are scribbling together on a magic board: In a bout of artistic exuberance, the little one has been scribbling on her brother’s arm and tee-shirt too. We have all been dancing around the living-room together, and for a fleeting moment, I recognise a feeling of happiness. I look over at the mountains, at the line of tender green creeping up their sides towards the barren rock and snow. I smile.

Among other things, we’ve been dancing to this: Lady Gaga – Telephone
