The light is golden. The wine is cheap and velvety (2007 Bordeaux, oak casked). I'm using the office computer since wi fi isn't up yet. Soon as it is, I'll post some photos.
I'm the only writer in residence until tomorrow, when two more fellows arrive here in Auvillar. They are painters. It will be nice to have other artists in the house. Well, sort of. I like having the country house to myself. Who's a spoiled brat?
I'm savoring every moment. Driving a leased Peugeot, eating local black olives, and loaves of fig bread with cheese. How much can one gain on a day?
Time to take a walk my friends, along the pilgrimage route of St. Jacques of Campostelle.
