Patriotism in France

2 Jun

I write this while I’m sitting in front of the TV watching the French Open tennis tournament.  One of my favorite French players is playing, Jo-Wilfred Tsonga.    He’s playing a popular Japanese player, Kei Nishikori.  But for the crowd, it’s Go, Go, Tsonga all the way.  Now if this tournament was going on during a colder time of the year, Marc-Antoine would have been watching it wrapped up in the Betsy Ross Flag quilt I made him.IMG_0864This is my favorite kind of patriotism, the peaceful, fun kind.  The warm and cozy kind.  The virtual kind.
