a locution in Brittany
In Brittany of France, which has been screwed up at the mercy of the long history, people often say like this, a friend of mine who used to live there told me. Though there are always thick clouds hanging here, the sun is always above us. A ray of light comes from the gap of the masochistic expression. Because there is light, there is shadow too. Judge in that point, as far as a barrier called "glass ceiling" is concerned, we can see everything above it.
