Oh yes! Pascale! I wonder what she's into now...
"Pascale Hospital tragically died in January 2005."Just one sentence, on one website. Pascale left this world, eleven years ago.
I was so sad to read that. I can't believe there's nothing more about it. I can't believe I haven't heard about it earlier, even the friend who introduces her didn't know she was gone.
I'm not gonna pretend we were close, I can't even pretend she would have remembered me but I always had warm thoughts when I thought about her and I wanted to post something about this feeling, share a bit of her poetry, and maybe get a few people to REdiscover her.
Here's Ame Strong major hit, "Tout Est Bleu" (Everything Is Blue), from their unique album "Combat Des Sens", released in '93.
"Oh, how can I tell, everything is blue; It goes through the azure of my eyes...We end up going where the devils tempt us..."
"Your skin on my skin frightens them, the Man, our families,
Would they like to change my color? Do they want my skin to be vanilla?
Our love won't let those who have the strange idea to divide Earth,
One side white, one side black
It's too strong, it's too short,
I'm the night, you're the day
We'll be the colors of Love...
Our love sinks into agony, if you hesitate, if you doubt
But together we are Life, it's to the others that it cost
And it's way beyond the looks, color is just a detail
I have strength, faith and hope, enough to win all the struggles"
Repose en Paix Pascale.
