Cathedrals


Three people were at work on a construction site. All were doing the same job, but when each was asked what the job was, the answers varied. "Breaking rocks," the first replied. "Earning my living," the second said. "Helping to build a cathedral," said the third.

I'm very proud MY Cathedral has been chosen : it is one of the most spectacular in France, stout and graceful altogether, lace stone motifs alternate with giant statues and raw materials. Not so harmonious as striking, and also ever-changing. The painter Monet knew everything !
I'm looking forward to discovering this new series.
