You see, I have not forgotten

…Les feuilles mortes se ramassent à la pelle,
Les souvenirs et les regrets aussi
Et le vent du nord les emporte
Dans la nuit froide de l’oubli.
Tu vois, je n’ai pas oublié
La chanson que tu me chantais…

(Kosma/ Prévert, Les Feuilles mortes)

  1. “Songs and smells will bring you back to a moment in time more than anything else. It’s amazing how much can be conjured with a few notes of a song or a solitary whiff of a room. A song you didn’t even pay attention to at the time, a place that you didn’t even know had a particular smell.” (Emily Giffin, “Something Borrowed”)

    I found this words, and I think they fit in to this post of yours. 🙂

  2. Every hour of our lives, Which are gone in the past, take on a material object (sometimes it is song ….or smell), and there remains hidden, trapped until we meet him again on his way. then we can recognize it, we call it, and thus … to recall
    When memories come back to us …. it is a very ephemeral sensation
    I do not like, this moment, when its gone, and it will come back in time, to this feeling …I go back a few steps to again to fit in a similar state…
    Kari, forgive my mistakes, my english is very bad.
    I regret that I can not write nicer.
    Your photos … and words … (it is touching) Thank you, for this, very much.

    • …but my dear, is never gone – your memories are never gone, and that is the beauty of it, it´s still there, always…(…smiling…)
      Thank you again, Agnieszka for your reflections…and for just being there to see…
      (…and of course the words are not mine, it´s a beautiful song…full of longing…but not mine)

      • I know, sometimes, when I walk … is something … it evokes memories … I mean That the memory can hide in all sorts of things, sometimes, it awakens us something unexpected Yes, you’re right, my memories are never gone.
        I have a weakness for French songs … (Jacques Brel-Ne me quitte pas) … hmm
        quiet evening for you, Kari

      • Oh! I have a thing for French songs too – of course, Brel, Piaf, Barbara, Aznavour, Greco, …oh well so many… a good day for you…

  3. (Oh damn… this song is so sad, but beautiful…)

    I like all in this piece, but what strikes me first are your profound eyes in the middle of this atmospheric sequence. In fact, I often find your eyes almost out of this world. In a good way, I mean. The way you dont look at the camera but still manage to keep the attention on your eyes is a great strength that you have. Needless to say I like this very much!!

    (And as an aside, I covered a small part of that song a long long time ago; I have this on a tape cassette somewhere… if I find it someday, I’ll put it on my blog, I think it was not too bad if I remember well…)

    Bye Karina

    • …damn, so it is!! and I love it so much!! Please shows your version of it!! Please, please!!…

      and thank you so much Benoît for your kind words about my images and me…it lifts me up…so nice, so fine…


      • My version of a small part of that song is hidden somewhere in a bunch of tape cassettes, but dont hold your breath, it might takes a long time before I find it!

        I must say I’m a bit slow to respond to messages, but I read them, rest assured. Bye… and a smile.
