Bulle - quelques pensées baladeuses autour de Flora Molton "Jesus Met the Woman at the Well"

Texte :

Ce matin, tu n’es pas touché par la grâce divine, cette aspiration t’a depuis longtemps quitté, mais par la ferveur d’une fidèle dont tu aimes aussi l’œuvre profane. Sa présence est telle que tu penses l’apercevoir chanter au coin de ta rue, négligeant dans le même mouvement la météo du jour. Tu as souvent écouté cette chanson dans une version beaucoup plus tardive et fort respectable. Mais, une fois n’est pas coutume, le gars Nick et ses mauvaises graines semblent, en cette occasion, peu impliqués. Tes pas suivent le rythme martelé au tambourin, la voix te rappelle ce que veut dire habiter une chanson, le son des glissandos heurtés du bottleneck te procure d’agréables frissons. Tu imagines fort bien qu’avec un tel transport la foi puisse soulever des montagnes. A titre personnel, tu n’en feras rien mais ta journée sera probablement éclairée d’une intense lumière.

This morning you are not touched by divine grace, this aspiration has long since left you, but by the fervour of a faithful person whose secular work you also love. Her presence is such that you think you see her singing on the corner of your street, neglecting the weather of the day in the same movement. You have often listened to this song in a much later and very respectable version. But, for once, the guy Nick and his bad seeds seem, on this occasion, little involved. Your steps follow the hammered rhythm of the tambourine, the voice reminds you of what it means to live in a song, the sound of the bumping glissandos of the bottleneck gives you a pleasant shiver. You can well imagine that faith can lift mountains with such transport. Personally, you won't do anything about it, but your day will probably be brightly lit.
