On the A6 highway, around Charnay-les-Mâcon, a man wearing monk clothes stands on a bridge and waves a white woodmade dove to salute cars and trucks driving away below. This man is Brother Antoine, a former monk of the Burgundian abbey of Cîteaux. He now lives in the suburbs of Mâcon and when not on the bridge, he spends most of his time making small woodmade crosses. When his hands work, his mind is free to remembers old souvenirs. And sometimes, Brother Antoine goes on the road wich brought him to the doors of the Abbey of Cîteaux, forty years ago.
