In mythical clubs such as the Fabric or the Village Underground. It seems impossible to go inside these temples of electronic music without wanting to come back, again and again.
This morning, I sit in this tiny café. In this tiny street of this town that has become so tiny. I’m vaguely trying to do my work. This coffee I’m drinking, I do not think it is good; in Paris, I would have hated it. Yet here I love it. Like this chair wobbly, uncomfortable, and those passers-by who became friends, ye I do not know them. At home, we ignore the people that have crossed; we certainly don’t invest the time to sit and admire them. It’s strange, but I needed to love the people who live here; those who have always lived here, been here three months, arrived yesterday, those who will depart tomorrow and those who will remain all their lives.
