brecht`s list

Oh Brecht…

My eating bowl nicely filled

A blank sheet of paper

Moving easily through a crowd

The first naked day in summer

The first wood fire in winter

My reading chair

Driving smoothly while thinking clearly

faces at supermarket check-outs

Forgotten photos falling out of books

Blue sky and high white clouds seen from the bath

Waving to an aquaintance when our cars pass in the road

John Coltrane playing “my favourite things”

Swimming in a dark river alone or with someone close

My expensive english jerseys

Porridge with cream and honey

The voices of my daughters

The boot scraper outside the street door

Grinding coffee with the Bosch

The first sight after absence of the woman I love

Making people laugh in french

Cycling to Limoux for lunch

Beginning a train voyage

Gathering wood to burn

Flowers left by the loved one

Walking at night

Being human with strangers
