3/3 - To the One who lives so deeply .... - A celle qui vit si profondément ...

 To the one who lives so deeply that nothing can make her tremble. No wind can uproot her. No earthquake can make her fall. Deep. I need your strength. A celle qui vit si profondément que rien ne peut la faire trembler. Aucun vent ne peut la déraciner. Aucun tremblement de terre ne peut la faire tomber.  Profonde. J'ai besoin de ta force.

Later, I had this vision of us two, making one with the ground, the dark brown soil. "Il y a un champ où nous sommes passés avec D. Plus tard j'ai eu cette vision de nous deux, faisant un avec le sol, le sol brun foncé." Spring has arrived, the fields are ploughed, the surface of the ground opened for plants to soon grow.

1/3 - The circle of my heart - Le cercle de mon coeur.

Notes, drawings and cut out on crystal paper. / Notes, dessins et découpage sur papier cristal SOUND PIECE : listen HERE (en Français ci-dessous) It’s been a year or two now, I have noticed that when I open my arms, I feel my heart opening with a sensation of Love and I feel/visualise/perceive my self as being as large as the circle that my arms have opened. It makes me feel strong, grounded and powerful. Potentially powerful. A potential power. A potential power from within. A power of Love. How large would the circle be ? There is a field we passed by, with D. Later, I had this vision of us two, making one with the ground, the dark brown soil. It reminded me of a very special dream I had, a couple of years ago. Around the same time of the year, I think. I think it was matching the Spring Equinox. I need to find this dream in my diaries. There was an emasculation. The dark brown soil of the dream reminded me of Kali, or would it be Isis for us ? Those   are times of

Melusine's tower - Vouvant / La tour de Mélusine - Vouvant

(en francais plus bas) For years now, I have been drawing the story of a winged mermaid but I first heard of Mamy Wata in Cameroon where my mother-in-law also gave me a bracelet representing an African mermaid. The half-snake/half-fish woman is to be found in most cultrues around the world, dating before religions. It is a very important archetype for which one can get lost in research. And even though I knew of Mélusine, it is only this summer that I realised she had "lived" in Vouvant, only a 100 km from where I was born (Nantes) ! I was born in Nantes and grew up between the small village of La Chasse and the island of Noirmoutier. Depuis des années, je dessine l'histoire d'une sirène ailée mais j'ai entendu parler pour la première fois de Mamy Wata au Cameroun où ma belle-mère m'a également offert un bracelet représentant une sirène africaine. La femme mi-serpent/mi-poisson se retrouve dans la plupart des cultures du monde, datant d'avant les religio
