Famous for making Matisse a Fauve.......
Collioure is a sweet, slightly touristy small town
originally famous for it's sardines.
Now it's possible to find there...wines of the terroir
oysters, too, at the market......
but mostly, quiet streets
arty moments (no lace curtains? paint your own! L-O-V-E-L-Y)
story book views
C O L O R.
Collioure could possibly
change your perspective
on life. You could withdraw from the world
to Collioure, to spend your moments praying on the greater ideas that shape our lives.
Or contemplating and practicing the beauty that surrounds you. And the making
of it. By your hands, or another's.
Or you could just plump for the sweet life.
Hanging out with your good buddies from morning to night.
Then eventually and ultimately..... tuck into some safe haven. Just to do the same tomorrow.
Collioure says "Yes" to life. And to the little bit of FAUVE in us all.
(Hope it was a good Thanksgiving! For those of you who had turkey. xoxo)
