Fadas, les mariés ?

Vallon des Auffes, Marseille, 2012.

Marseille, August 2012. Are they fadas, or completely bonkers, the wedding couple, throwing themselves to the water like this? Or isn’t that what all wedding couples do on that fateful day? Those who learn to swim together, those who panic and go under, those who leap like dolphins, well and far. And then there are those who just want to be back on dry land, who let go of the other’s hand; or those who swim for two, those whom the storm separates, those struggling to keep their heads above water, and those who never dare to jump in… Who knows, before having taken the plunge?

Marseille, août 2012. Sont-ils fadas, les mariés, de se jeter à l’eau ? Ou n’est-ce pas justement ce que font tous les mariés ? Ceux qui doivent apprendre à nager à deux, ceux qui s’affolent et boivent la tasse, ceux qui caracolent comme des dauphins, bien et loin ; ceux qui regrettent la terre ferme, ceux qui lâchent la main de l’autre, ceux qui rament pour deux, ceux que la tempête sépare, ceux qui s’accrochent, ceux qui restent sur le quai car ils ne veulent pas se mouiller… Qui sait, avant de sauter ?
