End of the Line: Madeline De Brie and Nicholas Mignault

Herman, Paul and Jean de Limbourg, October (detail with Louvre), from Les Très Riches Heures du Duc de Berry, 1413-16, ink on vellum (Musée Condé, Chantilly)

During the sixteenth century, the Renassaince arrived throughout the nations of Europe, and France celebrated in all of its glorious splendor. The French monarchs returned to the city, and Paris began to flourish. Henry IV ended the religious wars and his people enjoyed their new spiritual freedoms. New monarchies supported the arts and sciences, which influenced all the nations of Europe. Architectural wonders, monuments, and city parks abounded, and Parisians took pride in their lovely homeland.

  1. So nice to see you writing! I like your inclusion of photos to expand your research and text. I haven’t blogged since Covid raised its ugly head. I’m thinking about blogging again; however, I haven’t given up on writing poetry with Shavao Poets in Salida, and I write prose with a couple of friends. We three Zoom to the table weekly, each with a prompt, with ten minutes of writing devoted to each prompt. Nice triggers for prose or poetry. Best wishes. Keep it up! Doris


    1. Hey Doris! So nice to hear from you! I think of you often. It makes me happy to hear that you are still writing poetry. I have missed blogging, and I feel rusty! I just need to make more time for me!


      1. Yes! As wonderful as family is, making “time for me” is hard. When I think of priorities, I always laugh remembering my mother-in-law saying, “Thank God you are a good cook; you are not much of a housekeeper.” Laughter: our salvation.
