“À COEUR VAILLANT RIEN D'IMPOSSIBLE”

Meeting the Volunteers: Marion Sabatié

With her boundless energy and a permanent twinkle in her eye, Marion Sabatié reminds me of a mischievous pixie.

I was born at midday,Under the shady Umbrella Tree.Filtered sunlight, like warm hayBrought life to a newly born me.The soft green grass,Was my cushion of welcome.
