A French-Inspired Garden and Home by Judith Stringham

Vive la France!

There are no words to take away the pain, confusion, and loss for our French friends who suffered devastating losses this week in Paris.  Yet, beauty and compassion help ease the pain and remind us that the vast majority of people in the world seek beauty and compassion, not mayhem and destruction.  As we continue to write our blog posts, we are voices for beauty and compassion during this time of an incomprehensible violent act.  As an American, I send condolences to France and say Americans all across the United States are standing with France.

Sharon Santoni, author of My French Country Home, has written a moving post, making sense of it all,  in response to the violent acts in Paris.

Vive la France!

Ever mindful that to do nothing is to grant victory to those whose actions oppose us, 
I am posting my regular blog post about beauty as a way to say 
we will go on, and we will not be defeated.
