Ce blog parle de villages dont on s'occupe peu dans les médias, parfois miniers comme Saint Florent sur Auzonnet, niché dans une vallée retirée, envaginé au creux de montagnes, Molières sur Cèze, Le Martinet, Saint Jean de Valériscles, La Grand Combe etc... Une vie poétique et dure à faire renaitre pour tous. Germinal. Ayant filé plus loin que prévu -grâce à Aliaa Elmahdy- il est à présent bilingue français-anglais. This blog speaks about Cevennes villages unknown in media, sometimes mining (coal), Saint Florent, nestled in a secluded valley, Molières, Le Martinet, St. Jean, La Grand Combe ... A poetic and hard life revives here. Germinal (Zola). Having spun further than expected, thanks to Aliaa Elmahdy, it is now bilingual. Note: if someone finds mistakes in english, I would be pleased if he corrects them ! Thanks. Hélène Larrivé

Maria, une (autre) femme seule contre la mairie de son village, (ici dramatique!) Maria, a woman alone against the town hall of her village, here dramatic !

Voir le lien sur "Ouest-France"

Maria est une mère d'accueil de la DDASS dont l'un des deux jeunes enfants dont elle avait la charge a été tué accidentellement par une grille descellée dans un lieu public très fréquenté. Toute sa vie a basculé, son mari est parti, on lui a retiré l'autre enfant dont elle s'occupait et qu'elle voulait adopter, son agrément de la DDASS lui a été supprimé (donc par la même occasion elle n'a plus de travail) quant à son propre fils, il a lui perdu ses deux frères et son père. Pire, elle ne peut, pour défendre la petite victime, attaquer en justice la Mairie de son village pour défaut d'entretien de cet espace public parce qu'elle n'est pas sa mère biologique. Quant à celle-ci, c'est une personne fragile qui ne le peut également donc il n'y a personne pour défendre Ethan.  Pour les animaux, il y a la SPA ou Bardot, mais pour un enfant de la DDASS, rien. Un vide juridique inacceptable. Le combat n'est pas égal et nous devons l'aider (un comité de soutien par exemple.)


Maria is a woman whose young child, not her own (she was host mother for DDASS, direction of health and social action, but she considered him as hers) died in a accident (an old gate unsealed and no repaired in a public place in escheat). All her life now is devastated : her husband had fled away, she lost her other child as host mother, (her accreditation is annuled by DDASS, so she has lost her work too ) and her own boy has now lost his two brothers and his father (and his mother, depressive, has no more job) ! Worst, as she is not the biologic mother, she has no right to prosecute the town hall of her village for defend him.. and, as the child has no efficient parents (his biological mother is a frail person) nobody can do it for him !! For an animal, there is the "society for protect animals" -or Brigitte Bardot!- but for a child of DDASS, nobody. A legal vacuum, unbelievable ! She needs help, her fight is not equal (link).

"Dead suits you so wonderful*" (La mort vous va si bien..)

En français (lien avec le blog "femmes bafouées, battues et autres futilités..)  

Once upon a time, there was a woman who refused to age, to have wrinkles, thighs and "panties" so-called "of horse", the breasts, as light cars which pass from high beams to low... in fact, none that "Vogue" disapprove. No problem, she found plastic surgeons to cut, stretch, tighten, tattoo ("permanent" makeup), liposuck... and I take breast here, and I hang up higher, and I add a little flesh there and remove a bit elsewhere, then I raise up eyes, (but the eyebrows disapear, never mind, I tattoo), I hollow cheeks, remove "pockets" under eyes .. and finally, I inject silicone and collagen to smooth all perfect as an plasterer a wall, this, very regularly ie once the substance "disappears" (where? And to do what? Big mystery, no one knows) and the wrinkles were back again (biotox? No, not here).. because sometimes these reworks do not age well, it happens they make like waves, the navel decentred, don't stay in the middle of the below, a breast, like a defective car flashing, turns to left... In short, when one subscribes to these costly reworks -whose the protocols sometimes seem lightest- it needs a serious customer-service as "Darty". Until that... damned! an allergy to silicone, collagen [or some unidentified engine's oil unfit to run boilers] happens: more wrinkles certainly, not at all, but cheeks like pumpkins ready to explode -and of the same color- with a raging horse's fever... So, pin pon pin pon ! hospital emergency, where, despite a previous colitis, they stuff her with anti inflammatories, which work very well (she finally deflates)… but the colitis explodes (blood in shit). Never mind, the "salazopirine" (a special drug -banned in France but the story doesn't happen in France-) cures that very well ... but it requires regular monitoring of blood counts (!).. that she doesn't do because she doesn't know [and anyway, when it is positive, it is too late.] Leukaemia.

So : beware of cosmetic surgery, sometimes performed as if we go to the hairdresser, and if possible keep your meats about "bio" unless extremely urgency.. in the case for example you have shooting yourself (with a gun!) in your face ! on an evening blues.. because you look not so pretty at 50 years than at 20 ! Rare, happily but it happens ! (so do a woman here because her husband she beloved was runing after ladies younger than her and left her alone.. ok, in a beautiful house with parc and swiming pool, and lot of money.. but without him. She escapes, a miracle.. and, another one, her depression stopped! ) Deus sive natura.

*A very funny movie with Meryl Streep inspired from "Faust", which imagine two women whose principal aim in life is to be and remain physically perfect.. So they run esthetic surgeons, one, another, and another again.. until the day where an "Méphisto" (the devil) puts them the market in hand (he proposes them a deal) : OK, they will stay eternally young and beautiful... but not alive ! so they are : they become kinds of iron robots; for instance to make up, they buy some spray paints and rustproof (!) in masonry shop (and chainsaw, screwdrivers, wrench..) and sometimes, it happens, when one accidently falls down, that her head turns over in the other side !. no problem, the other takes a big hammer and gives her a violent blow to turn it right, it is OK.. and so on... hilarious.

Michèle Ribot, une femme comme une autre, juste un peu plus courageuse peut-être.. A woman like others, just a little more courageous perhaps

Beautiful all the same
Life after cancer, without reconstruction, 20 years later* (when you see the tragedies linked to PIP implants, it's probably better).. even if a a perfect gentleman (!), having chosen this pretext as another one, told her "I can't desire you now". Bravo.  Sometimes, the desesperate will to please men at any cost.. can kill (link.)

* She was said "lost" by some doctors, and she answered "OK it is the war, I shall win it." So she did.

La vie après le cancer, 20 ans après, sans reconstruction* (lorsqu'on voit les drames reliés aux prothèses pip (lien), c'est sans doute mieux ainsi!) Bravo! Belle tout de même, même si un parfait gentleman ayant choisi ce prétexte comme un autre, lui a dit tout de go "je ne peux plus te désirer maintenant".. (!) Parfois, vouloir plaire aux hommes ou à un seul à tout prix peut tuer.  

* Des médecins la disaient perdue, auxquels elle répondit "OK, c'est la guerre, et bien je vais la gagner." Et elle la gagna.

Juste un détail : Michèle a fait des travaux de maçonnerie avec ses filles et son mari pour réparer sa maison et restaurer un château (Montalet): résultat 20 ans après, plusieurs hernies discales.
