Here's an article on my beloved La Muse Writers' and Artists' Retreat by my friend and fellow Muser, Irish playwright Seamus Scanlan:
It's worth the read for a little background on my favorite place in the world. A Note: The editors of writing.ie shortened the name of the village from Labastide Esparbairenque to LaBastide for some reason.
Seamus is an awesome fellow, a vegan with a penchant for eating bread, though I do not know if he has amazing vegan powers like Brandon Routh's character in Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World. You should check out his play that received rave reviews in NYC last year:
It was Seamus who, on a deary November day recommended The Pillowman, an amazing play by Martin McDonagh. It's very dark but amazing. I read it a just a couple of hours.
Anyway, back to La Muse. That's where I want to go when I die. And hopefully sometime again before that....
