This is another painting that lights up our flat, produced in 2003 by my partner. The English translation would be "The Sweetness of Dawn" or "Dawn's Sweetness".
It is perhaps a good time to show this; a new dawn is about to emerge in France, with the second round of a tight presidential race due on May the 6th. Will the country get its first ever woman president, the Socialist candidate Ségolène Royal, or will it end up with the Conservative Nicolas Sarkozy? The latest polls show it will be extremely close. Whatever the outcome, France is in for a big change. Both candidates are considered to be part of the "new political generation": they are younger, plain talkers, not steeped in pomp and ceremony. Both of them are promising a "firm break" with the past.
So, which name will be easily falling off our tongues in years to come? Which name will be sprinkled into our literature, media, psyche? What suspense!
