French Women develop their unique talents.

French Women's Secret #7:

French women believe in life-long learning. 
They might take community classes in dance or photography or watercolors.

Or, a French woman might join a choral group or a gardening club.  
Then again, a French woman might take up the French horn!  

It's never too late to challenge yourself to do something new and unexpected and just a little bit thrilling.

I began concertina lessons a few years ago.  I haven't played a musical instrument since I studied the violin in elementary school.  Everyone was surprised that I was now playing my little concertina and that was half the fun.  It didn't matter that I wasn't very good; it was the delight of doing something a little challenging and very new.

Have you developed a new talent, mes amies?  And has it changed your life in small or big ways?  I'd love to hear about it!

Merci beaucoup!
