    Congratulations to your husband! He has shown so beautifully what nature will do if just given half a chance. It also gives one a feeling of hope for the future. Mille mercis…

    Thanks, Heather.

    The expo is running until December 7th, if you are in town.

    Otherwise, he usually is present at Recontres in some capacity.

    Bon w-e.

    Thanks, Carol! Will keep you posted on the evening. Much love from Paris!

  5. Wow. Felicitations à ton mari!! C’est impressionant. And it says so much about his aesthetic that he worked on this project for eight years–that is a long time to keep unspooling a thread!
    Hope that you both have a wonderful time tonight.
    Perhaps he will show at the Rencontres soon? 🙂

    Wow this is very amazing that this land is not developed and that he is documenting all of it. Send pics of the exhibition if possible. Congrats on the show and all the best! Carol
