Where do the dead live ?

The dead who once lived among us

Their absence is humongous

And the dead now live within us

When we’re dying to live…

I live with unicorns

And I dream of dragons

Some say my case is forlorn

But we all live in unison

A brief encounter 

Coming from a multinational multicultural family I learnt many languages and to deal with many cultures...
This has shown me the importance of words and communication.

Words are sweet water to my lips...
for lack of a better word I'll make up my own if I have to... if it serves the purpose of my writing... words are all yet sometimes words are not enough...

From the minute I could write I wrote... and haven't stopped yet...I wrote… before I could even write…

 

As soon as I put pen to paper the first word is followed by another and another and another and words tag on together… and the words become my words for my greatest pleasure…

Words and I are words of a feather…

 

I look at my writing in more of an oral approach… spoken word’s the written word here… our lips are not sealed…

 

My writing evolves around not only words and ideas but also reason and rhymes… sounds like poetry… imagine you’re listening… and let yourself be carried away…

My words depict the surreal side of everyday life… with all its eerie magic… riding the crest of the jagged edge between fact and fiction…

 

The music of my words is my melody…

Play on words play with words… play on sounds play with sounds…

Adaptations, articles, books, lyrics, musicals, poetry, reviews, scenarios, short stories, songs, texts, …

 

I specialise in teaching training and coaching in language and communication and cross-cultural trainer and adviser… I look at my writing in more of an oral approach… spoken word’s the written word here… our lips are not sealed…

I am also a fully trained caterer as well as a hypnotherapist, a Reiki practitioner and music therapist…

 

I also translate and adapt my writing and others’ from as well as into English, French and Italian… and I produce my own audio books in French (3) and English (7)…

  

Literature plays a major part in your life.

How did it all start ?

Literature and art in general play an essential part of my life… the mere pleasure of words and puns, the need to communicate and share first and foremost… exchanging too… but also the whole game of writing and the secret wish to provoke thoughts… I write… I write… I write without ever being able to stop… as though words and ideas were channelled through me…

 

Which are your literary and non-literary influences ? 

My literary influences

So many ! The Nouveau Roman… Nathalie SARRAUTE, Sylvie GERMAIN, Christian BOBIN, Ernst JANDL, …

Poetry, songs and music… Barbara, Jeanne-Marie SENS, Alain BASHUNG, Michel BERGER, Claude NOUGARO, …

 

My non-literary influences

Anything and everything really ! Sciences, photography, painting, nature…

People, philosophy, sociology, spirituality, everyday life… everything in a word…

I love playing with the surrealistic side of life… most people let it go by without ever noticing it… without realising… playing with life’s potentialities… and of course –although rarely- experience… to name but a few…


Which are your favourite themes ?

People, philosophy, sociology, spirituality, everyday life… everything in a word… my writings often gather in themes… my books and collection often do too and around typical themes such as… (BioHazard (Recyclage in French) and Umma Dawn (Un Mythe Ummite in French), revolve around the idea of nature and life… Umma Dawn (Un Mythe Ummite in French), and Live To Tell (L’Enfant Perdu in French) rely on personal experience… others like On Air (A L’Antenne in French) and Y2K are about communication and politics… while others still are about music, teaching and writing itself…

 

If you had to relocate on another planet which books would you take along ? 

Les Échos du Silence (The Echoes Of Silence) by Sylvie GERMAIN… but it sure wouldn’t be the only one…

Gene Roddenberry s'est illustré en produisant quantité de films sur les extra-terrestres et l'espace... qu'il semblait affectionner tout particulièrement... et il a du inspirer plus d'un JJ ABRAMS...
Il avait notamment su garder et valoriser le côté humain de sa fiction... un grand maître du genre !

Il s'était illustré dans la série Star Trek: Generation, Genesis II, et différents films et séries tes The Rockford Files, Spectre, The Questor Tapes, ...
Il restera mieux reconnu pour sa contribution à Star Trek... que pour le reste, ou même l'ensemble, de son oeuvre... qui mérite plus qu'un détour... et cela ne serait que justice de voir toute son oeuvre remastérisée et rééditée...

Les dernières parties de la dernière saison ont été réalisés après sa disparition par sa femme et partenaire Majel Barrett... présente dans ses films et séries...

Curieux titre français... puisque l'histoire n'a rien à voir avec une invasion...

An old man sitting atop

A hanging rock

Is watching the world go by

He has seen the past and the present

He’s now looking into the future

Of a world on the rebound

 

He used to think

The world was flat

But then the world was round

They told him this

They told him that

And now he’s not so sure

Une bonne idée mais…

Une histoire improbable dans un monde improbable qui a du mal à entraîner son lecteur...

 

L'hsitoire commence dans un pays qui n'est pas le Royaume-Uni (désuni) mais y ressemble fort et emprunte  largement à son décor et à son histoire... curieusement la version originale est encore plus truffée de termes et mots latins et français... alors que l'on n'est pas en Angleterre du Moyen-Âge et que les Normands (ni les Romains d'ailleurs) n'ont jamais enahis ! Alors pourquoi ? D'où iennent-ils ?

 

Des tribus guerroient en luttles intestines fratricides perpétuelles pour la suprémacie... la famille royale est protégée par une armée de l'ombre dont l'un des fils bâtard est membre mais... cette armée de l'ombre réside au loin hors de frontières du pays dans le grand nord éternellement enneigé... comment peuent-ils donc être les protecteurs efficaces qu'on nous présente ? 

Au fur et à mesure que la série évolue on nous ballade dans un autre pays où une princesse sera mariée au prince d'une autre tribu qui l'emmènera... et de là la série passe de l'historique au fantastique... compilant un ramassis salmigondis de bouts d'histoires qui ne semblent jamais aboutir et prétendent en être une seule...

 

Rien de ceci ne tient la route hélas... malgré le succès certain qu'on lui connaît... curieux destin...

The snake slides up the great pyramid

As the sun warms his skin

Calling all the people to worship

Warning all the people of its being

Travelling in space and time in fear

And the snake slides back down the pyramid

As the sun disappears…

 

The sun will go round and round again

The sun will come around again…

It is time for the sun to turn in

As it’s time for the moon to come out

 

The snake lies in peace at rest at night

As the moon cools his skin

Calling people off to sleep

Cooling all the people in the deep

And the snake stirs in his sleep

Feeling the moon wane and the sun rise

As the moon steers clear…

 

The moon will go round and round again

The moon will come around again…

It is time for the moon to come down

As it’s time for the sun to come in

 

The night will be worn again

The day will be born again…

And everything changes

While everything remains the same…

She brings the flute tip to her mouth
And blows into it from her pursed lips
And as the melody rises above the earth
The mountains repeat the sound of the wind
The earth resounds in joy and melancholy
This outcry for the peace and harmony

Mother Mary is beautiful
But she’s a one-man woman 
And that man’s not me

Eve bit into the apple of knowledge
Far and long ago in the Garden Of Eden
And she thought she knew the answers
But all along she never knew the questions

Mary-Magdalene
Fell in a love with a stranger
She didn’t sense the danger
In loving an alien

When I lie here in ruins
Having given to your love and hate
My remains collected in a crate
All by your mad doing
