…ever since my childhood, smoked fish carries unpleasant associations:
My grandmother used to make me eat smoked fish with mayonnaise for breakfast –
Everyday, the same.
A strange bird, now passed away.

Our farmhouse is full of grandmother’s things, we didn’t want them anymore at home:
We’re going out there next weekend,
I’ll carry out all the coats, and furs, and books into the sun.
Only that sun…
One doesn’t know what to expect…
Even snow in summer wouldn’t surprise me!
Everything is out of joint:
The beginning of May brought frost and snow
And winter gives us buds and mushrooms…

You see, we had Christmas at our farmhouse,
But this year, there was no frost, no snow, it felt like it could be Easter!

Unusual, very unusual, it made for a very strange mood:
In the morning, I rose before everyone else
And I went into the woods –
There was refreshing green moss,
Just like in springtime!
And as I walked the path, there beyond the well,
I found three chanterelles!
The end of December, how come?

As granny liked to say: The end of the world!
