It’s 6 AM and my internal alarm clock goes off. I read in bed for an hour or so, Karen is still asleep. I get dressed for the studio and go out to the tabac and the boulangerie in the center of Claret (the town I live in in the south of France) for my morning newspaper, the Midi Libre and baguette for breakfast. Back home to eat breakfast and read the paper. Karen then goes off to work at Bioversity an International agricultural research organization where she is involved with the Promusa website and organizing international scientific conferences concerning bananas and plantains. After the espresso and bread I go to the computer and check on emails and the International news from the New York Times and the BBC.

9 :00 and I’m off to the studio it is in an old agricultural hanger in the middle of the grape vines about one kilometer from my house. I get there by my trusty Renault utility vehicle, however if the weather is nice I walk or take my bike. I work until about 1 :00 when I take a break for lunch then back to the studio until 6 :00 or 6:30 when I return to the house to check emails and begin preparations to cook dinner. Karen and I enjoy our dinners, often with a glass of wine, to catch each other up on the day’s events.

After dinner, I check in a bit with social media, reading and research for new pieces and from time to time a call to Katie who is a police officer in Paris. Evening programming on TV begins at 9 :00 so we catch a movie or an episode or two of a TV series.

On the weekend Karen and I go shopping together for the week ahead and I try to get in some Nordic walking. In the evenings it’s the cinema, a concert, or dinners with friends
