As you have seen, and as I told you at the beginning of July, the site turns to the theme of water: analyzes of coastal management during periods of high tourist influx (the presence of the French, in any case in Brittany, largely compensating for the absence of our European neighbors or for missing Asians or Americans visitors because of the Covid 19 restrictions), the testimony of a sailor on his Atlantic and Mediterranean crossings as well as, I hope, people living year round on different French islands. We will analyze, with the help of correspondents, the multiplier effect of an environmental risk, a large-scale flood, which is coupled with that of a global pandemic in two urban areas, including one located on a coastline, dealing with high growth and disparity.
With its poetic touch, CC also reminds us that a place, beyond urbanistic studies, remains a matter of the heart. French Poet Joachim du Bellay (1522-1560), back from a long journey through time (Antiquity) and space (Rome), understood that perfectly well, he who spoke of his home as follows:
When will I see, alas, of my little village
Smoke the fireplace, and in what season
Will I see the wall of my poor house again,
Which is a province to me, and so much more?
(Happy he who like Ulysses, Les Regrets, Paris, 1558.)
I still have to wish a nice summer to the people who go for vacations in August and to thank all those who organize and animate our holidays. Of course, your comments are welcome and, in case you also want to write an article or share your testimonial, please do not hesitate to contact the website.
