Go Ahead !


Go ahead from Shehrazad on Vimeo.

Go ahead !

When I was a child,
My father told me this story

Long time ago
When that great general
Was about to conquer the land of Spain
He burnt his ships
And then he said to his soldiers:
Behind you is the sea,
Before you is the enemy
Go ahead!

I want to learn everything
As if I am going to die tomorrow
My days and my nights are too short
Nobody will contradict me
Succeeding must be obvious
But what is success?

But nowadays
I am like this general
I go ahead
Because life has obviously taught me:
The word “desperation” must be removed from the dictionary!

But where are they now ?


But where are they now ? from Shehrazad on Vimeo.

But where are they now ?
Tonight
I want to scream....
Where are my childhood heroes?
Where are they hiding?

Where are the Fairies and their magic wand?
the Magicians and their potion?
The Genies and their lamp!

I want a magic book of spells
I want some magic words
I want a miracle
I want everyone to be happy

I don't understand anything anymore!

This evening,
I want everyone to be happy

This evening
I would like to thank them
one thousand and one times
To live only
In fairy tales...

This moment of silence

Now I do know you during these beautiful days
The songs of poets are no longer pipe dreams
The life is no more black and white

I can forget the darkness of this world
Our tomorrows become an empire of serenity and real promises
The earth is shaking
My heart is melting
This is a whisper of light
No need to think just to dream

Shall I know you again during those deep dark days When everything is taken away from me?
When I am rich in a body full of tears ?
When my only sight is a cry for help ?

Why now is there this moment of silence?

A beautiful day

A beautiful day,

A new day is about to come.
My black cat woke me up early this morning.
It may rain today.
My cat is lying by the window watching the people walking in the street...

I don't have a car.
Actually I prefer to ride my old bicycle to enjoy better life in the city

A friend calls me.
He is very sad.

I tell him:
« Please do not worry.
Never give up!
Do believe in your tomorrows
Tomorrow will be a better day."

I ask him to come with me.
But he prefers to stay by himself.
He will meet me tonight.

Then I seat by the river and I read a book.
And the wind helps me to turn the pages….

Now it's raining heavily.
But in fact I like this rain in the summertime.
I come completely wet at home.

This night, I am waiting for my friend in front of a flower shop.
Fortunately he is late, so I can admire the orchids.

Then he comes. He asks me why I am taking pictures.
So I answer him:
«I am just a human being who likes beauty".

A sentence begins with a capital letter and finishes with a full stop.
We forget sometimes this breath, this restful time, the time to think of each word...
We forget sometimes the comma.

Happiness is in each single moment of the day, that we want to be.
