I awaken from an unexpected nap on the Sun Deck of the S.S. Catherine cruise ship. We are docked in southern France, on the Rhône River, just outside the Medieval walls of Avignon. A tarp over my lounge chair shades the sun and a gentle breeze from the dormant mistral, the famous wind of Provence, whisks away the heat. I had been replaying the morning sightseeing through groves of sunflowers and perfect picturesque villages graced with startlingly blue sky and lavender-scented air. Perhaps the dreamy glory of the moment and memory lulled me to sleep—-or maybe it was the rosé served at lunch.
