Presentation : Français / English (next to the dots ....)

Ben voilà. J'ai croisé sur un marché de mon petit village du sud de la France un "Marchand de cailloux" qui m'a donné le virus. Et c'est parti.

Adolescent, les premières sorties dans des anciennes mines où il n'y avait rien à trouver, ou presque ; et puis : Duranus et Cap-Garonne.

Et le virus ne m'a jamais quitté. Je l'ai mis en veilleuse, d'autres passions l'ayant parfois étouffé (la musique surtout) mais il reste toujours bien vivant, bien présent : 25 ans qu'il me hante pour mon plus grand bonheur : Très bonne maladie !!!


Here I am. I met, on a market, in the little town in south of France where I was born, a Crazy guy who was selling stones. and he gave me his disease.

As a teenager I first visited ancient mines... where there was almost nothing to find. But I quickly discovered Duranus, and Cap-Garonne (still my main interest).

This disease never left me. I did other things, got other deseases (especially music) but this main one remains still alive and comes back again and again... for my greatest joy.
