C’était aujourd’hui le premier jour ouvert au public de l’exposition “Modigliani et l’Ecole de Paris” à la Fondation Pierre Gianadda de Martigny.

Entre le grand nu couché, les portraits de Jeanne Hébuterne, les sculptures qui dialoguent avec celles de Brancusi et les portraits qui racontent les amitiés avec Suzanne Valadon, Maurice Utrillo, Chaim Soutine et Juan Gris, la Fondation rassemble les témoignages d’un monde qui attend la guerre puis qui s’y plonge tout entier et ceci dans un Paris qui secoue toutes les traditions en passant sans transition dans le premier grand drame d’un XXe siècle inquiet. 89 more words

My ultra light mini tent has arrived. Can’t wait to set it up. Looking forward to a lot of nights out in the field…

I received my pilgrim’s pass today. May the journey begin soon…


Pilgrim's Rule #4- Always take the high road.

We wake up well-rested and head to breakfast.  Breakfasts have been our primary meal, as we are often too tired for dinner.  With eggs, cured meats and cheese, fresh and dried fruit, cereals, yogurt, croissants, toasts, jams and butters, juices, we were able to eat heartily and take along food for the day’s walk.   1,582 more words


In the Tuscan Jungle

Dear Friends,

The wilds of Tuscany possess almost no internet capability, and if there is, it is really slow.  I have had little luck uploading photos and blogs aren’t much fun without them.   542 more words
