Gaining An Understanding Of History While Hiking In Southern France

By Cheryl Freier, Author of:  The Grayling Hidden Truth Poems and Blossoms Around The Circles Hidden Truth Poems

Just from viewing the outside of castles, which were built many years ago, one can gain an appreciation for the design of the building.  In a recent article written in The Fifty Plus Advocate newspaper, there is a picture of the Chateau D’Arques, designated as a Templar castle.  This particular castle is known for its soft touch with windows with extended seats and a huge fireplace in the living room for warmth as well as atmosphere.  The architecture also depicted the dangerous times by placing an extended roof over the entranceway to the castle.  People living in the castle would place hot boiling oil in this ‘chute’ to spill over anyone coming to do them harm. 

In the book, The Wild Grasses Hidden Truth Poems, which is also by Cheryl Freier, the family finds a wooden cabin hidden in the woods.  They enter and begin to feel that this is a house of magic, being mystically entreated to stay for a few weeks.  They find large canvas bags of flour, potatoes, dried fruits and nuts, and bottles of wine.  Anna fries pancakes and potatoes for them.  They put together a traditional plate for the Passover holiday.  They pray to G-d with their only Bible.  They make plans to leave the woods.

Once you have read The Wild Grasses Hidden Truth Poems, you too will feel that the design of the house tells the story of the people who lived there.  Cheryl Freier’s web address is:  www.thegraylinghiddentruthpoems.com and her books can be purchased on Amazon.com and on Barnes&Noble.com.
