Last week I had the fortune of visiting Senanque Abbey in southern France. It's an old Cistercian abbey nestled in the gentle hills of Provence and surrounded by stunningly beautiful fields of lavender:
There was literally lavender as far as the eye could see:
Yet for some reason, my main memory of the visit will always probably be of this guy's catastrophic comb-over:
I kept wondering what his hair looked like right out of the shower. It must hang down below his chin, but only on the one side obviously, which would almost be kinda punk. What would it look like if he spiked it into a lopsided mohawk? Or put it in a sideways ponytail? Does the sun burn in stripes on his bald scalp? I had so many questions.
In spite of my beautiful surroundings, I couldn't take my eyes off that wreck. Sometimes I wish my brain worked like normal people's.

I'm glad your brain works like it does.

This is why I love this blog.
-I love lavender (or maybe the romantic notion of lavender?) and swoon over the thought of being in France seeing and smelling those fields in person.
-You're right. That comb over presents more questions than answers. I am pretty much dying to see one in its relaxed state.
-You'd be surprised at the number of gray 'rat tails' I run into...
