C'était comme une caresse du bout des yeux

Le temps qui s'épuise, un pont vers les cieux

Où des soupçons d'éternité trompent les heures

D'une parenthèse de bonheur, une tombée en hauteur

Regardez la vidéo.
Si elle vous interpelle, soutenez mon projet.
Et je vous en serai infiniment reconnaissant. 

Discover the video,
and support me if what you hear and see resonates with you. 
I'd be most grateful for your contribution to this project.

    Be a part of the art: if you like, send us your personal pics, and we will do our best to feature them in the book. We're looking for either:

    - A picture of something odd about you
    - A picture of your childhood home
    - A picture of a place that you love
    - A picture of an object that you love
    - A picture of a couple that you love (can be your own)
    - A picture of someone that you love
    - Or all of the above

    JPEG/PNG format please. Quality or aesthetic value doesn't matter — au contraire, the rawer, the better.
