I suggest another title ; À choeur ouvert .
Same sound and fully appropriate for the event if you know what the “choeur” is in a church . .
Yes, nice word play! I was thinking of open heart surgery and the image of the bleeding cross.
The advantage of some serious word plays is they convey both possible meanings altogether, none is erased . And as coeur and choeur are pronounced exactly the same, both meanings appeared to me instantaneously .
Yes, the aerial view really allows you to see the extent of the flames.
Yes that’s right.
I wanted to apologize for not paying its due tribute to your original message, with words and photo associated . The fact that the fire opened a hole just above the altar, theorically the holy point where the Superior light meets the ground, can be seen as highly symbolic . The fire opened a way for the light, in this corrupted world, and your photo showing a cross of fire that allows the heart to be nude and open makes me want to acknowledge the accurate beauty of your title . Thank you miss Caribou .
Thank you Phil for your elegant interpretation of my proose, which I greatly appreciate, and your apology, sweet but unnecessary. 🤗
