May 21 was a magnificent day. I had the chance to meet extraordinary people … kind and generous people. I speak about Kathleen McGowan, Mary Parent, Patrick Bernauw, Patrick Ruffino and Marc Borms.
Synchronicity was a key partner in our meeting, and we all share a similar interest in the phenomenon. One person was absent on this memorable day, but we did not miss an opportunity to speak about him: Philip Coppens. Without him, this would not have been possible.

But let us return to our joyful and dynamic team. We visited all together the cathedral and naturally, stayed for a long time in front of the famous polyptych of Jan and Hubert Van Eyck. “The mystic Lamb” was completed in 1432. It is a real miracle, which encapsulates so much information. For more details, I invite you to consult the pages of a specialist on the subject,
I spent an unforgettable time in front of it, as it is so interesting to listen to the inexhaustible Patrick Bernauw on this subject. Let us put it plain and simple: he and I shall have to work together in the near future, him, in Flemish, me in French, us together in English. What an ambitious development and promising project!

Fortunately, the story doesn’t stop there.
