Temporary Post

All we do and build in this world is temporary. We don’t look at it this way and yet, with hindsight, once we are dead and buried, who will remember us and what we’ve done. What will become of this website and the 2,000+ blog posts which I have written, not to mention the thousands of pieces written for clients and other blogs and sites. Even our books… And our houses, one day, will end up like this one, possibly a stately mansion at the beginning of the twentieth century, yet it’s crumbling to dust now.

Castles too are temporary. All is transient.

What will become of our beautiful Roman churches and chapels in the Pyrenees now that nobody goes to mass. Let’s look at all this beauty now for there are no guarantees they will still be there in a few years.

Château du Landel

Leaves too are temporary, but like the magnificent 18th century chateau du Landel in Normandy, some things remain, or at least are a little bit less temporary than others.
