Bonjour writers: Day One at the Chateau de Lavigny

Last evening I arrived at the Chateau de Lavigny to start a three-week writing residency. I plan to blog a little at least every day just in case you're really, really bored and need something to fall asleep. See how considerate I am? You're welcome.

But seriously, it is an amazing place and is totally suited to writing. Since it is a writing program and not a blogging program. I will write about the two people, Heinrich and Jane Redig-Rowohlt who transformed this three hundred year old chateau into a place that throbs with words and memories and creativity and life. They are no longer alive, but they are with the living if you know what I mean ;-).

Since it is a writing program and not a blogging one I must content myself with posting pictures for today instead of being my usually overly-verbose self. Enjoy!
