Brittany 2012 : Brittany 12_04 : Home From The Forest

Coda: I write this on Dec. 27, 2012 and I just learned from my Dad that Ophélie's dad, Félicien, died on Dec. 23. Dad called me after returning from the funeral. The funeral was very well attended by family, friends and colleagues. This is unusual, as most Breton prefer to have only close family present. Félicien was from the north-east of France, near Valenciennes, and a large contingent came to Brittany to see him off. It is to Félicien's credit that his life touched so many diverse people. He chose to live on the edge of a small rural village and to raise his family there. He passed on his love of the land to Ophélie and I chose this image of her homestead for Félicien's memoriam.

I cannot say anything nicer than it looks like my Annapolis Valley. Perhaps it was part of it one day long ago.

This shot is very similar to the lands in Lower south River, Antigonish county.... similar rolling hills, pastures, fencing, and forestry.

It's good that people lead their lives in ways that invite respect at the end.
