From Sète to the Béarn

After a week at the Poetry Festival in Sète (videos to come in a few days) where Nicole read/performed at least once a day but where the internet connection, if I may call it that, didn’t allow me to publish anything to this blog, we drove today to a village in the Béarn near Pau for a week-long residency on Occitan poetry. Leaving Sète we stopped at the “Cimetière Marin,” title not only of Paul Valéry’s best-known poem, but also actual place where the poet lies buried. A couple photos:
