To those who know

J and Z, Manhattan, NYC 2009.

To those who know they must hit the road again. To those who had set down their duffel bag, who built, loved; to those who kissed and so hushed the thought that, by and by, one night or morning they would have to get under way. To those who know that a torrent cannot give rise to a lake, that man is ebb and flow; to those who watch the boats and those who see the trains roll like dice, to those who tonight look in through the window and to those who discover their duffel still inside, to those who are hesitating: be afraid of nothing, except of the passing of time.

À ceux qui savent qu’il faut reprendre la route. À ceux qui ont posé leur sac, à ceux qui se sont assis, qui ont construit, aimé ; à ceux qui se sont caché le temps d’un baiser qu’un soir ou un matin il fallait reprendre la route. À ceux qui savent qu’un torrent ne devient pas lac, que l’homme est courant ; à ceux qui suivent du regard les bateaux, à ceux qui voient les trains rouler comme des dés, à ceux qui ce soir regardent par la fenêtre, à ceux qui retrouvent leur sac resté là, à ceux qui hésitent : n’ayez peur de rien, sauf du temps qui passe.
