The Woman Who Remains

Once again, the woman, on the port, comes to hang out her washing, her sorrows, her bitterness.
She must hold on, stay to maintain the tradition, the family while the man is gone

towards "those luring horizons"...


The changing city

I contacted the Drac Bretagne to offer them a residence in Brest.
