Sunflowers in the market in Arles, France were an immediate memory of painter, Vincent Van Gogh.
This morning when I sat down to write my mind was blank - no sparks firing from my spark plugs. So I flipped through a few of my computer photo files and came across this bucket of sunflowers I photographed in a street market in the Provence town, San Remy
Jim and I came to San Remy to make the pilgrimage to the sanitarium outside town where Van Gogh lived the last days
of his life.
That was our trip in 2001 when we were stranded overseas because planes were grounded by 9/11. Instead of touring the area with a group Jim and I were our own. We drifted through the plan of the tour, town to town, hoping our hotel rooms were still available. Marking off the days until time for our plane in Marseilles which would carry us home.
