Un road-trip sur la côte ouest de la France

Un de mes voyages que je me souviens bien pendant mes etudes en France, ça c’était un road-trip en basse-Normandie.

Je n’ai jamais ecrit un blog de mes voyages en française mais j’ai promis, avant que on est parti, mon ami Arthur que je ecrirai le blog en française. 548 more words

PoetSpeak reblogged this on Arthur and Oscar and commented:

The positive response led to the conclusion it is woth a re-blog. To those who have seen this thank for your support and truly inspiring comments. If anyone is new to this page here is an opening film which is part of a lost story about Alfred Douglas and Oscar Wilde.  They meet in Rouen after his release from prison in 1897. All the players are from the north west of England and it was filmed by Lancaster Film Makers' Co-op in 2015.  Students of Lancaster Royal Grammar School play the main parts. Here is the link. For my followers, visuals on Wilde Reflections, my last post, showcasing the work of Mr Fraser and Ms Bryony Rogers will hopefully arrive soon.     [contact-form][contact-field label="Name" type="name" required="1" /][contact-field label="Email" type="email" required="1" /][contact-field label="Website" type="url" /][contact-field label="Comment" type="textarea" required="1" /][/contact-form]

Merci, Simone! [in Strasbourg]

I posted this picture on the ‘Og last June, when I went to Rouen. At the time Simone Veil had just passed away and I wanted to recall her single-handed fight for making abortion legal in France… I received last week an email I first took for a spam, email from a curator of the European Parliament, in Strasbourg (where Simone Veil was for a while a European deputy and its President, its first female President), preparing a permanent exhibit in her memory and wishing to use my picture in the exhibit, to illustrate another perspective on her, away from official and family photographs. 9 more words
