Back from Nice

Utah, the monster dog.

I am barefoot on my terrace, swinging on a hammock, the unseasonably warm weather making me think of Camembert left to melt on the grill at the end of a summer barbecue. The husband is working just a few meters away, the cat is in her basket napping, and the dog who is visiting for a week is slobbering copiously. Five seagulls are making a racket as they dive for the old bread I had left for them on the marsh. I don't think dogs eat live bird, but it does make me wonder. Does the labrador hear their cries as a dinner bell's clanging?

The weekend in Nice with old friends was very, very interesting, but it feels good to be home.

Hi, would you be interested in writing a short piece for Asia, a new magazine based in Singapore? It doesn't pay a whole lot but wouldn't require a lot of effort on your part anyway. I think your amusing observations about life in France would suit. Lmk, nicolehlow@yahoo.com
