On one of our travels to France, our family visited the Abbey of Saint-Gildas-de-Rhuys which faces the Atlantic Ocean from a high hillside. In the Twelth Century, the Abbey was a place of exile for the Abbot Peter Abelard. If one looks closely at the photograph, the silhouettes of two people may be seen, our two children who had walked there from the Abbey to see the incredible view. On a more poignant note, when we returned home from this particular trip, I learned that my mother had died that day and, although others had tried to contact us in that day before cell phones, these messages were never received. Yet in retrospect, and knowing my mother had never been in good health, I found this photograph very moving.
