The Diving Bell and The Butterfly/Le Scaphandre et Le Papillon: Jean-Dominique Bauby

“Je m’éloigne. Lentement, mais sûrement. Tout comme le marin dans une traverseé voit disparaître la côte d’où il s’est lancé, je sens mon passé qui s’estompe”

“I’m drifting away. Slowly, but surely. Just like the sailor on a crossing who sees the coastline where he came from disappear, I feel my past becoming hazy”

The Diving Bell and The Butterfly/Le Scaphandre et Le Papillon, by Jean-Dominique Bauby. Thanks to Lunch Sketch for reminding me of this special story which I  have in book and film formats. (Translation from French to English is mine).
