Welcome to my Inner World. I am a French self-taught artist, and these past twenty years I have made Norway my home.

Stand still. The trees ahead and bushes beside you
Are not lost. Wherever you are is called Here,
And you must treat it as a powerful stranger,
Must ask permission to know it and be known.
The forest breathes. Listen. It answers,
I have made this place around you,
If you leave it you may come back again, saying Here.
No two trees are the same to Raven.
No two branches are the same to Wren.
If what a tree or a bush does is lost on you,
You are surely lost. Stand still. The forest knows
Where you are. You must let it find you.

A few photos taken today from Stamsund to Storfjord. The great news is that dogs are now allowed in the bus, under the condition that none of the passengers is allergic to dogs, so I’m now free to travel with Loki to some places I haven’t visited for a long while. Looking forward to going on some new adventures with my dear companion.Traduction ici
Acclaimed for its deft blending of fantasy, psychology, and archetype, The Wild Mother is a brilliant depiction of the Wild Woman and those who would enslave her out of fear. Its protagonist is Lilith, predecessor of Eve who fled Eden for the woman-inhabited wilderness called the Empty Land. While returning to our own world to claim the 10-year-old daughter she was forced to abandon, Lilith is taken prisoner by Adam Underwood, the child’s father. Her liberation by two others Adam has enslaved — his blindly devoted colleague, Eva, and his still spirited mother — forms the crux of this powerful reinterpretation of the myth of female destiny.”

A young fox falls in love with a human man and summons the magic of the foxes to assume the form of a woman in order to win her lover’s heart. Expanding on her award-winning short story, “Fox Magic,” Johnson sets this version of a Japanese folk tale in medieval Japan. The author imbues her story with the delicate details of another time and place, creating an atmosphere of understated passion and controlled intensity. A good choice for most fantasy collections.
