Pourquoi de l'aube au crépuscule ? Parce que les textes ci-après s'étalent de l'enfance aux derniers émois d'une vie, voire au-delà, dans le memento des personnes ayant jalonné le parcours de l'auteur. Toutes les histoires relatées sont vécues. Elles expriment travel à journey des sentiments qui interpellent : étonnement, leisure, injustice aussi, voire souffrance du corps et de l'esprit ... Les enfants y courent dans leur innocence, leur intrépidité, leur incrédulité, leur impuissance parfois et los angeles faculté qu'ils ont à ne rien oublier. Il y a aussi les difficultés d'exister des plus grands dans l'illusion d'un bonheur qui se fait attendre : regrets, urgence d'un dernier acte quand le temps s'enfuit ou rappels à l'ordre surprenants. Et puis, de l'homme à l'animal, il n'y a qu'un pas ... De quoi inviter le lecteur à découvrir de belles narrations. De quoi l'inviter aussi à être plus attentif à tout ce qui l'entoure. Bonne lecture à tous.
