Le palmarès


Château de Fontainebleau

It’s almost the end of 2015, a logical moment to look back on the past year and look forward to what is coming. I had a lot of great experiences in Scotland, France, and my home in New England. This is le palmarès (luh pal-mar-ez), or “the ranking” of the top ten posts based upon what you, the readers, were most interested in this year:

Une femme d’un certain âge

Il y a des fleurs partout pour qui veut bien les voir

La chouette d’or


L’Amour est la poésie des sens

Le baccalauréat

Le beau est toujours bizarre

Les Parisiens: ce qu’ils disent, ce qu’ils font, ce qu’ils pensent


Racine carrée


West Sands Beach, St. Andrews

It’s a diverse group: posts about books and education, artists and authors, adventures and recipes, and singers. Interestingly, the top posts for this year are all from years past, which illustrates the enduring power of a blog. And what about looking forward? 2016 will see me in Paris in both March and June/July. I’m hoping to visit Annecy, near the Swiss border before I start my summer job. I’ve never been there before, and it looks beautiful.


Grande Mosquée de Paris

Merci to all of you who read this blog so faithfully. May each of you have a happy and healthy 2016. May there be peace in France and in every corner of the world.

    I’m a little confused. You said these pictures were from New England, but isn’t the first one of Fontainebleau and the second of St. Andrews? Maybe I’m wrong or the pictures got mixed up.
    I do always enjoy and learn from your blog. Happy New Year and happy travels!

    • It was a badly worded sentence. The “where I took these pictures” referred to all of the places in the first half of the sentence. You are correct – Fontainebleau, St. Andrews, and the Frand Mosquée de Paris.
