This is a 3 hour set of tributes to Abdelwahab Meddeb. Pierre Joris' blog linked to it, and I have listened to bits of it. Simply listening to the sound. Each person has a slightly different delivery, but it is all French. It is being spoken more slowly and more reflectively than usual.
He moved from Tunisia to France in 1967 and has a wiki page.
This is like being a beach, every tide brings new people, dead or alive, to get to know a little before the next tide moves in.
The photo is from last November. A friend built a vast bonfire structure up in the air on wooden struts. This is the grass where the embers fell as it started to burn.
