Solitude, Peace and Beauty

When I think of “solitude“, I think of our beautiful mountains in the Pyrenees. The chair I sit in and from which I look at the top of the mountains where I do mountain biking. There’s no one there. Just bears. And even so.

The lakes, the vista. Peace. A break from the Big City.

Peace. Green peace. Pure beauty.

Country Pageant in the Ariege (“Autrefois le Couserans”) – 1

antimuseum.com-summer13-1062
Couserans” is the name of a province within the district of Ariege, some sort of indomitable Gauls type of area in which things look, to the untrained eye, exactly how they used to be in the past. This is our safe haven in the Pyrenees, where we have our mountain house, a place which serves as an antidote to our modern and hectic life. Each year, a pageant is organised in Saint Girons (above), at the foot of our mountains, to show how peasants and people used to dress and live in olden times (hence the title of the outdoor show). I selected a few pictures from that pageant. Here is part 1 in this series.

Geese were, I was told, the new guest stars of the pageant

In Bethmale, a South-eastern valley in the Couserans, clogs aren’t to be trifled with!
