The entry room...
We saw a large reception room with huge fireplaces on either end that was set up as a rehearsal area for the Parisian dancer and her musician husband who are in residence. From this window we could see the home of Andre Breton, a French writer and poet who is considered the founder of Surrealism.
We wandered through painter's studios, computer rooms, a small library, Mike's living space as well as his music studio. Each level of the house was connected by spiraling stone staircases and dimly-lit hallways painted with ancient frescoes and medieval designs.
After wishing Mike bonne chance with his upcoming concert, we climbed back up to the church to light a candle to the Merci Lady, St. Therese. We left the village by the chemin in front of the cemetery which is still decorated for La Toussaint. St. Cirq is very quiet these days; the tourist season is over, but creativity still flourishes at Daura House!
