Door To An Alternate Universe. . .

Magical doorways like this one to hidden lives are one reason I love living in France. . .

It is magical. The colors are stunning. What a gorgeous photo. It makes me want to pick up and move to France. ;)

Amy - move to wonderland, not to France!

Zoom this is oh so enchanting. Simply stunning ! Makes one want to walk through that door . my head only got as far as my monitor...(smile) I have made this my desktop. Do I have to pay you a fee now? Hope not...

I agree...stunningly enchanting is this and the open door calls to me. The colors are superb in here.

This is truly amazing - you take such excellent photos! (Imagine what VistaPrint could do for you with this!)

Hi Di, thx so much, I'm sure Vista could do a nice t-shirt with it... that's going to be my new Spring design line !

Hey Vivian, you changed your photo, looks great, almost didn't know you ! Until I checked the link. It was a magical place.

Zoog ! I am so happy to see you here, you wouldn't believe me... now, having said that, the fee for using as wallpaper is 300 kilos of gold ingots, which is only a small fraction of the actual market value, but you are getting the best friend's discount deal ! OK ? Can you have that FedExed to me for Monday ??? ;-) You can use the Air Freight mode they have, ok, 'cause gold is heavy stuff !

Amy, thanks ! You are right, it is exactly this sort of thing that made me pick up and move to France 17 years ago. Well, there was the young lady who is now my wife too... hmmmm, that might have had something to do with the move too, now that I think of it...

And Nat, again last, but by by no means least, Am not sure how to answer, but I guess I could say : but France is Wonderland... well, in my book it is anyway, but I'm a hopeless romantic as we have already established. The entire planet Earth is wonderland as far as I'm concerned, but France is a special corner of it. I know no place is perfect, France certainly has its fair share of warts and blemishes, but every now and then there are moments of pure magic that I still fully appreciate after all this time here...
