This is my little - but VERY inspired - visualization of one of my first and most wonderful encounters with the French language; having recently moved to a little village in the French-speaking part of Belgium. I thank my very patient French teacher for introducing me to this amazing voice: Marléne Jobert - I ADORE her interpretation - it's magical!
I have tried to find a way to contact her, to ask her kind permission to show my images alongside her voice - I cannot find her contact info - so I tried to make it with only the written words - because the poem, by Jaques Prevert, is of course at the heart of it all! - But it's this amazing combination that just makes my heart dance with joy! And I so much wish to share it with anyone who wants to hear and experience this MARVEL!
Belgian children are lucky:) They get to hear and read this wonderful little poem while they are still children:)
- So, I take a chance and jump - I just really have to share this - I hope noone will sue me! And I hope it will bring at least a fragment of the JOY it brought to me!
