L’important c’est le voyage, pas la destination

montagemeriem

Écrire. C’est New York qui m’a appris à écrire. Capter l’attention, faire voyager, émouvoir. Mes converses aux pieds, mon BlackBerry (2009 les mecs !) à la main, je vagabondais au gré des rues de Manhattan et Brooklyn. J’immortalisais ces instants d’infini avec quelques mots, sauvegardés à la va-vite dans mon téléphone… Et toujours cette sensation de déjà vu. Où avais-je aperçu cette scène, cette façade, ce bâtiment, ce musicien ? A la télé, au cinéma, ou dans mes rêves ? New York est devenu mon terrain de jeu. Les règles n’étaient plus les mêmes qu’à Paris. La Pomme menait la danse … Lire la suite
