A flash-back. Le Gouffre near Plougreskant, on the North side of Bretagne, is one of my favourite spots. It is very savage, and although there can be some occasional tourists, it is possible to be alone for hours.
The sea isn't exactly friendly over there. What you do, you do at your own risk. There are rocks one can climb, and between these, in the deep, the waves are calling with rauquous voices, offering eternal forgetfulness in Davy Jones' chest..
Some of the rocks bear a resemblance with Mono-Lake, California, well known from the cover of Pink Floyd's album 'Wish You Were Here'. But although the water at Plougreskant is not poisoned, it is much wilder and unpredictable than in Monolake.
The rocks in this work are my interpretation and stem more from my imagination than from the actual Plougreskant. One could see them as stories people tell of past exploits and voyages beyond the horizon.
