The Atelier du Pied d'Or
The Atelier du Pied d'Or is an "ideal" place. Strictly speaking, it's not a place, although it took up some and will perhaps take up others. It is actually in the Mayenne (France), département bordering on France and Brittany, which always a bit suffered from being a part of them, neither the supposed Pays de la Loire ! So it is. The Mayenne is nothing else than the Mayenne : she makes proud of it !
One must say that she is a grumpy sort : A bit rejected, she is cold-shouldering all year long, miles from anywhere. Naturally wet, she wears a sunny smile from time to time, just what's needed to show her pretty teeth and not to be repudiate ! As it happens, the Mayenne is beautiful : a shapely and dazzlingly green > vouivre who, just standing out of deep waters, looses her scales, her tail and her fish evil-smelling...
The Mayenne is a den.
The Mayenne is a dark sun which obscurely shines.
The Mayenne is well haunted. Almost nobody knows that and it's well !
A place miles from anywhere (in the Mayenne)...
A track miles from anywhere (in the Mayenne)...
A sign miles from anywhere (in the Mayenne)...
A popular myth that the writer Marcel Aymé embodied in a mysterious black-haired and green-eyed female bather who dwells on the banks of the River Loue in his wellknown novel
