Thank you to Catharine and James for the friendly welcome. Catharine's message suggested that I introduced myself, so I hope I'm posting this in the right place. I'm a writer, have traveled quite a bit and lived in a few countries before settling in France over ten years ago. We are converting a stable into a live-in studio. My husband is a painter and scientific illustrator and the real boss of the household is our elderly labrador Java.

I'm looking forward to swapping experiences and learning from this network and, if I can, contribute something useful in return.

... à suivre.
