Somebodies you might recognise...

It was a fabulous parade this year!  Look who I saw in a great big fire engine!  I was so excited that I only took close-ups!

Love you!

Vendredi à Castres

Coming this Friday to Castres:  a band playing Turbo Klezmer Balkan Ska !!!
I think I have to be there even if I can't find anyone to go with me.
But what should I wear?  A gypsy skirt, peut-être...

Street Theater in the Parc

Street theater by Triade Nomade in the parc at the Abbaye Ecole tonight.  
It was a little windy but wonderful.  They danced the tango and jumped a fire rope.
On stilts.
In a word: Spectacle!

Hailey Beavis - Singer/Songwriter/Musician

Hailey Beavis is a singer/songwriter from Edinburgh, Scotland, who began writing her own songs when she was 14.  I saw her perform in a salon setting at Chateau Padies on Friday night.  By the end of her second set she had galvanized the room full of people, and at least half of those people only speak English as a second language.  Unique singing and writing voice.  You can listen to her song "Patience" here

For a back corner of France, we sure do get an amazing variety of culture here in the Tarn region.

Les Chouettes (The Owls)

A local artist was selling these at the spring Marché de Fleurs in Revel on May Day. 
 Too heavy to carry home, but I sure was was tempted.
