Grazie Dio Io Sono Italiano
...but if I wasn't, I wish I was French! Readers of this blog probably realize that I am among other things, a Francophile. I grew up in New Hampshire, the state with the largest percentage of people with French Roots. I lived in New Orleans for a couple of months. I led hiking tours in France for five years. Montreal is one of my absolute favorite cities in the world and where Heather and I celebrated our honeymoon.
I love fois gras (Je suis desole all you PETA types out there), Chablis, agneau, canard, and creme brulee. And I love French film and music; Metis, Afro-French, French-Caribbean, and especially, Cajun. Last night Heather and I went to see BeauSoliel for the first time. They played right here in Mount Vernon at the Lincoln Theatre. Ces't Magnifique!
Now my heart is two-steppin-and hopefully that'll help me meet all of these deadlines I'm now facing!
A bien tot mon ami.
(Photos-BeauSoleil the island in Ontario, and the band from Lousiana. I got to experience them both this year!)
