Jacques Brel, Philosophe

“l’enfance c’est une notion géographique.”

Childhood is a geographical notion.
We are born in a place called childhood. It is geographical.
Childhood is a sky close to the ground.
It is grey, it is damp.
There are adults I don’t understand.
It could’ve happened in Limousin,
in Brittany or Paris.
It took place in Belgium.
It is a geographical notion
rather than a historical one.

Jacques Brel, Singer-Songwriter
