consacrer entièrement a l'écriture.
Le livre : Une attitude face a la vie. L'écrivain est dans cet ete' indien ou il
n'y a plus de temps a perdre. Rester du cote' du soleil devient une lutte de
chaque instant. Il nous rappelle que la vie est faite d'instants pas forcement
spectaculaires, mais poétiques. Il raconte les moments de bonheur de la vie

A summer afternoon at The Atrium.....
The Atrium, une maison de retraite a Sans José, offre un programme
mensuel qui célèbre les différents pays du monde. On a choisi la France
pour le mois de juillet. Bernadette Theisen, membre du conseil
d'administration de l'Alliance, a gracieusement accepté de faire une
présentation sur la culture française suivie par une dégustation de fromages
et de vin français. Laurie Kane, a long standing member, a fourni 6
fromages français, Marie-Claude Garrity, responsable des cours de
Campbell, a prêté une carte de la France et d'autres décorations, et the
Atrium a acheté 3 vins français. L'après-midi était un grand succès. Nous
étions toutes très bien reçues.
The Atrium, a retirement home in San Jose, offers a monthly program
celebrating different countries of the world. France was chosen for the
month of July. Bernadette Theisen, Board Member of the
Alliance, graciously accepted to do a presentation on French culture which
was followed by a wine and cheese tasting. Laurie Kane, long standing
Member, furnished 6 French cheeses, and Marie-Claude Garrity, Head of
the Campbell School, lent a map of France and other decorations. And the
Atrium purchased 3 French wines.
The afternoon was a great success and we were all very well received..
