J'ai la chance de compter parmi mes meilleurs amis, Bryan Greetham (et Pat Rowe, éditrice de publication, sa compagne), deux excellents esprits. Je les ai rencontrés a Périgueux en 2005 et nous avons correspondu depuis ce jour. Bryan et Pat résident présentement dans le Sud de l'Angleterre et, amoureux de la France, ils n'ont qu'un souhait, c'est de venir s'installer et écrire dans une de nos belles régions du Sud. Pat à été temporairement, éditrice de French News, le journal des expatriés anglophone en France.
I am privileged to count Bryan Greetham amongst my friends.

William is very gracious to say that he is privileged to be my friend, when I think it is quite the reverse: I am privileged to have such a loyal and patient friend. Well that’s the back-slapping over. You may wonder why I describe him as a ‘patient’ friend. It is quite a familiar tale, which I’m sure you have all heard before. My partner (Pat Rowe) and I would both like to move to southern France, where we could see more of William and enjoy the enviable lifestyle you all have. But, as in many cases, the problem is how to make it work. For us it is not that we have children so we don’t have the difficult problems that so many parents have. Ours is a different problem: we both have interests and work that don’t migrate so easily. We need to feel part of a community in which we could regularly meet for good conversation and enjoyable company.

Although I am a philosopher and a writer, this doesn’t have to involve the typical esoteric subjects that are generally associated with philosophy, but we have both lived in countries abroad where a critical mass of likeminded people weren’t around so that you could feel part of wider social group. This wouldn’t be so difficult for Pat, whose French is quite good, but for me I would have to start from scratch with what little French I have. Unlike Pat my early education was in a secondary modern school where there were in fact no school leaving exams, let alone teachers to teach foreign languages. Most of you would know better than I do the opportunities where you live for this sort of interaction, although I’m sure all of you have better French than I do so you don’t share to the same degree these concerns. But I would like to know how you have all made the transition.
