“Little big places of conviviality”
A constellation of thirty municipalities,
galaxies of humanity and bundles of energy all directed
towards the mountain.
Spread out in the sunshine or the shadows of the peaks.
Small, hidden, or little discovered,
or well known and populated.
Along the route of the Tor des Géants
some of them are Life Bases,
where you trust yourself to be restored, to exchange tiredness for vigour,
in order to take on new distances, again, the next day.
For those who follow and accompany the athletes
they are ‘home’ for the days of the race.
Places where they can wait for the arrival of their loved ones or their heroes:
often the boundary between admiration and love is slight …
To see them appear on the horizon, to meet their gaze and feel their fatigue or satisfaction written on their faces.
Let’s discover them, these little big places of conviviality.
