How did the month of August go for you?

Did it fly by? Mine too!

I had plans to make progress on a couple of big projects — things like a new book, and an online class — and I did some work on them, but I also let myself just enjoy the slow drip of summer.

My favorite part was seeing the paintings Van Gogh painted of Montmartre when he lived on rue Lepic, behind a handsome blue door I always point out with relish on my Montmartre tours.
