The city with its high buildings and clean streets was staring at you heading north towards the horizon. She could barely hold those rainy tears that gathered in its cloudy sky. It rejoiced itself with the idea of you coming again, with overflowing heart, spreading warmth on that glacial day, flying over the sweetest reminiscences as the recurrent bird of the winter…You will come back, the city will prepare it by covering all its landscapes with sallow snow, being more like a glowing mirror to your joyful smile… It would offer its best… All what is white and beautiful.

They seem suspicious… gathered close to these windows and turning in round as if performing a native American dance… These tiny air molecules, brought by this northern cold breeze over the diverted Cayi…, were very cautious to come very close to that window, but some could not resist and succumb to the temptation to have a closer look.

You come to life with eagerness to achieve, you would like to reach the highest mountains, stand on the sharpest summits; but many a time, "the wind thwarts your vessel" and you find your dream denied… Between the fears of loss of your passion, your exhausted spirit and the burden of waiting… you stand quiet and inert trying to digest your tears, and rationalize the “injustice”…. Slowly thereafter, you resort to prayers… prayers in the temple of knowledge.

...a beautiful image of an alive and cute being, Sofie.

Just like a doll!

Her eyes speak a silent talk... Her body moves in a charming walk…
It is so tight, slips in the air, so high, so light…
Just like the rays, pushing the dark, fighting the night…

Ô modèle, tu n'étais que quelques idées éparses, quelques équations séparées, quelques passages étourdis; mais je t'aimai comme tu étais malgré ton imprécision et tes impuretés et je me suis mis à rassembler ce qui est épars et soigner ce qui n'est pas droit... et te voilà, aussi beau, aussi fin, aussi juste ; tu n’es plus un simple modèle ; plutôt un top modèle ... J'aime que tu te tiennes droit avec un regard orgueilleux face aux critiques et face aux flatteries ; je sais que tu ne le fais pas par supériorité mais par fierté... Je suis reconnaissant au fait que tu m'ouvriras peut être les portes du succès mais je tiens à te dire que je ne t'aime ni pour la grandeur de ta construction, ni pour l'orgueil de ta précision, surtout pas pour la finesse de ta beauté, ni pour la complexité de ton argument... je ne t'aime que pour une raison unique... la subtilité de ta simplicité.
