Anyway things leave us sooner or later

Life leaves us sooner or later

It flows like a stream

It’s just an illusion – thinking you can hold on, hang on, hold fast

On a planet sailing through the space at thirty kilometres a second – One hundred thousand kilometres per hour – Three hundred times the TGV


Riddling nights under our skins

Beautiful silence

Beautiful loneliness

And beautiful clouds : where is the end of your course ?




Go to the place of the water where the big swells are born

Save stocks of salt for your old days

Don’t let yourself get stuck in the tide of links, things and actions

Unclutter yourself – unload – unbore yourself – let’s act acrobatic


Do what you like and like what you do

To your star, Anita


Adventure is so much easier, there

Even the fear, there, is easier than the globalised cities’ fear

Fear of not being good enough

Fear of not being loved

Fear of not being, period.
