I think this will be my last song about Franche-Comté - at least until we go back next time.
This is a recurring theme for me.
I'm fascinated by the strong feelings I get of the extended history of the immediate area when I'm walking on the isolated trails of the forests of Franche-Comté in the east of France. Who built that house/chapel/bridge? What were they like? Who else has walked the trail I'm on? Why? Who built the 18th century house we are staying in? What are their stories?
The colours refer to the seasons of the forest on the banks of the Doubs river where we do a lot of walking. It would be great to spend a year and see the seasons some time (although winter might be a tad chilly!).
Cette chanson est dédiée à nos amis Brigitte, Marc, Karine, Bertrand, Joëlle, Jean-Francois, Armelle, Apolline et Laurentin.
Merci encore pour tout!
