I remember a line in some Joni Mitchell song where she thought love was just "mythical" Possibly the tune "This Flight Tonight" but don't quote me on that.

I would so love to see Versailles. I did get to tour Vaux le Vicompte, which was build by the same architect. Awesome.

Sue, Yes, it is Versailles' call that you hear. Many stories, those grounds, I'm sure, could tell.

Jannie, It is definately worth the visit. So incredibly opulent, it's no wonder the French revolted.

LOVE that photo. And yes, indeed.

Certainly, they are many things that never happened but that are true.

Carla said...

Isle Dance, Thank you. I felt as if the water gave the horses movement. I can feel them as they rush past.

Aaouie, Yes, and these secrets only reveal themselves with time.

Impressive and the mystique of 'myths' always retain captivation - as your picture does indeed portray.

Carla said...

Mone, That's a very wonderful feeling. Hope you are well rested. Nice to see you again.

Diary of Scotland, Thank you for your kind words.
