That year, I went back to the Island of Pico, in the Azores. I wanted to meet the writer, poet and whaler José Dias de Melo, in his native village, Calheta de Nesquim. I wanted to spend a few days with him, to watch him live. I wanted to hear him speak, listen to some of the important stories of his life. I wanted to film his village, his house, his comes and goes, to go with him on his walks and discover the landscapes he has described in his books.

But when I arrived in Calheta de Nesquim, I heard he had been ill and sent to the hospital in São Miguel, another island of the archipelago. Nobody could tell me when he would be back.

So I decided to wait. I brought one of his last books, « Poeira de Caminho », « The dust of the path ». I leaf it through to pass the time. And if I listen, I can hear his voice…
