    Ici, je me trouve parmi les gens qui jubilent devant l'objectif d'un smartphone. Une main tente de tourner ma tête dans le bon sens, sans doute pour que fasse bonne figure sur la photo. Mais je regarde ailleurs, hors cadre, on ne sait où, mais en tout cas pas vers les princesses en robe blanche qui se mêlent à la foule joyeuse. J'envie aux poules leur saine indifférence, leur œil rivé sur l'herbe verte qui est bien plus rassurante que la forêt qui s'embrase au fond de l'image, bien qu’il s’agisse évidemment d’une attitude stupide qui risque de leur coûter cher. Mais c’est un moment d’illusion, de tranquillité, de repli sur soi devant l’agitation générale, une concentration sur l’essentiel.

    Here, I find myself among people who jubilate before the lens of a smartphone. A hand tries to turn my head in the right direction, probably to make a good figure in the picture. But I look elsewhere, out of the frame, nobody knows where, but in any case, not towards the princesses in white dress who mingle with the joyful crowd. I envy the chickens their healthy indifference, their eyes riveted on the green grass, which is much more reassuring than the forest which blazes at the background of the image, although it is evidently a stupid attitude which may cost them dearly. But it is a moment of illusion, of tranquility, of withdrawal into oneself in the face of general agitation, a concentration on the essential.
