Journal, I : Ténèbres en terre froide: (1957-1964)

By Charles Juliet

Au tréfonds de l'être, une plaie suinte, que maintiennent à vif maintes de ces questions auxquelles il n'est jamais facile de fournir une réponse : vivre, le faut-il ? Et ce mot, vivre, remark le comprendre ? Quelles significations lui attribuer ? Et que doit-on faire de sa vie ? Quel sens lui donner - ou en recevoir ? Et s'il semble rigoureusement necessary de se connaître, cet être que je suis, quel est-il ? Dois-je le subir dans tout ce qu'il est ? Ou bien puis-je le transformer ? Mais alors dans quel yet, quelle purpose ? Vais-je savoir brûler ce qui m'encombre, désenfouir mon noyau, ne garder en moi que ce qui procède de l'élémentaire, l'originel ? Et cet autrui dont je viens de vérifier à quel element il est mon semblable, vais-je savoir le rejoindre ? Et si je cède à ce désir de me connaître, remark dissoudre l'angoisse qu'il suscite ? remark vaincre l. a. peur de los angeles vie ? l. a. peur de los angeles mort ?...
Mais quand ces questions le taraudent, l'être n'est pas à même de se les formuler. Elles ne sont tout d'abord qu'un malaise, un désarroi, une lancinante sensation d'exil, l'âpre nostalgie de ce que l'on ne saurait nommer, une infranchissable solitude. Et c'est à son insu que l'être se trouve progressivement engagé dans une aventure dont il ne soupçonne ni en quoi elle réside, ni où elle est weak de le mener.
Les notes rassemblées dans ce magazine sont les strains laissées par un homme embarqué dans une telle aventure, et qui, des années plus tard, devra s'avouer qu'en se scrutant los angeles plume à l. a. major, il n'a fait qu'obéir à un pressing besoin de se révéler à soi-même, se clarifier, s'unifier, à l'impérieuse nécessité d'accéder à l. a. liberté, los angeles connaissance, une ineffable lumière.
