The Calm Of Blue At Beynac As the fading warmth of an autumn evening gently becomes a slight chill, Rachel and I sit cozily, immersed in the blueness of a French countryside that prefers peace to noise, slowness to busy-ness. And we’re okay with that. Behind us, we’re watched by a medieval castle that has […]

The blue calmness and chill of a winter morning surround me as I run along a beaten track. It’s too early for heavy traffic – the morning stirrings of an English suburb are still subdued, sleeping gently.
