Nothing was ever planned nor foreseen. He left home, on a winter morning, wishing to cross France, walking alone from South to North. Wandering, willing to break with his bounds and habits, he left to take a fresh look upon the territory and the dreams and the daily life of its inhabitants. He was trusting his luck to meet new people and to reach his only aim: HAPPINESS.
