Best Of 2021 Weekend Portfolios : Patrick Bastide


… 30 minutes, again …

as a child, we spent all summer vacations there

in Fombillou

with cows, hens, turkeys, pigs

at the farm

to wilt alfalfa, to bundle, to harvest

Grandpa always grumbles, in patois, after his machines

rural and summer drought

heavy heat until the night

with my brother, on an adventure, on a tampered bike, to play

in the corners of the village, the infinite countryside

Granny prepares her morning pascades, her garden ”farçous”,

her huge chickens, roasted on the stove, for Sunday with the family

Marcel is gone

then Odette

my last moments spent with her

… 30 minutes, one last time …
