"A Hideaway Where a Soul Could Forget ~ or Remember Herself ~ in a Heartbeat"

Words from Dorothy's book capture the magic and transformation that occurred when she stepped into the pool at Le Mas d'Ariveaux in Provence. Floating in the garden pool, she watched hollihocks dancing against sunlit evening clouds. The turret on the 16th century farm house where they were staying, poked it's spire into what she thought was a dream. Not!

Popping her survival bubble took more than just one poke. Dorothy set out with Jim the following morning to find lavender fields to paint. Discovering Provence too hot to paint in the field, instead she and Jim ordered lunch in a cafe. She opened the watercolors in her satchel and painted while their salads were prepared.

Why watercolors she hadn't touched since college were in her satchel? A god-given whim put them there. Just like the whim that put the crazy notion to apply for a residency in France in her head. In a heartbeat, everything changed.
