At l'Eglise de Compesières even the door leading to the powder room is enchanting...



You pull open the heavy wooden portal only to enter a stone floor room, pitch black, with two doors leading off to the right. If you're lucky, you pick the powder room door; if you're not so lucky, you greet the Mayor in his office.




But the minute you wrap your freezing fingers around this ancient handle, imagination begins to spin and dance - and the music you hear groping its haunting fingers toward you lures you back to the holy sanctuary...

Looks like the entrance to Rapunzel's castle! :)

You write in such a way that I feel like I'm in the middle of a medieval romance. Then the pictures make me feel like this medieval romance is taking place in this ancient castle. And it's really about a ladies room or the Mayor's office. Good job, Allison.

Enchanting is the perfect word. I wish the holy sanctuary sound was louder.
