“In Mazeyres I taught them. They listened. Together, we observe without dissecting, we listen to the organised murmuring. We share neither language nor background. Together, we quietly forge a passage to the hardy plant rising up from the soil, we show our own growth and our seasons. It draws on my power, the strength of their arms, and the bounties of the sky. Our symbolic cross. I remember their names, their faces show their spirit. I watch them working, bending over, laughing with grapes between their teeth, or closing their eyes as winter launches an icy assault. From the quiet of the office or at the bank, I strive to maintain, and sometimes defend, what they have here, what keeps their hands busy, their days, that which earns their living and mine too. They are the human element without which there is nothing.”

Alain Moueix.
