Sunday morning on the porch. With the boys. With croissants. With tea.
A gentle breeze, the happy warmth of the sun and well, being home.
Norman and I went on an early morning walk this morning, and I enjoyed listening to an episode of Paname podcast which focused on the Obelisk in Paris and its history (episode #14). I find myself slipping away to France or England whenever I have the opportunity through audio, films or books.
The Fourth of July for me was spent at home with the boys, quietly. I enjoyed watching for the first time Hamilton and delighted in the prescience of so many of the conversations presented on stage that are happening more broadly now throughout our country . . . finally. There were tears, there were cheers, there were ahas, there was joy and appreciation and reminder to keep striving.
One moment in the first half of the play, Angelica Schuyler sings/suggests resolutely why not in the second draft include women in the declaration? Which made me remember to share with you a series you may be interested in viewing which begins tomorrow on PBS focused on the history of women’s suffrage here in America titled The Vote.
And if you are interested in a Francophile film, I can highly recommend La Vérité (The Truth) which I shared on this week’s most recent This & That. I had the opportunity to watch it Friday evening and thoroughly enjoyed the story (and being set in France didn’t hurt either. 😉
Wishing you a lovely Sunday, and thank you for stopping by TSLL. 🙂
