About susan sheldon nolen

It’s rare to catch me without coffee, a form of camera, or my beloved wire fox terriers. I love the history, the art, and it’s a massive part of my life, as I either paint, write, or get interrupted by my dogs, reminding me of the real world. I hope you enjoy your time here. It’s such a privilege to have readers.

I walked by this window  in Gordes with only the sunshine causing movements of light. Then as I turned, five children burst onto the scene  laughing, ran up the stairs, leaving only a memory of joy flashing by.
