Lou's Diary
A little prince, not quite like the others
  Hello, I am a little boy who only sees right with his heart...
Which doesn't make my parent's daily life any easier. So I'm blind and different (mentally speaking).

Lou and the wind


Welcome to Lou's blog

This blog was born in french during autumn 2003 and is now progressively being translated in your language.

New articles will therefore appear on a regular basis.


... my apologies to the people who hadn't understood this yet, all articles on this website are created and written by myself (his dad).

Lou is currently unable to do it,, just like he is to this day unable to grasp the concept of a "computer", "internet", or to focus for a long period of time on a conversation. Only time will tell us if we manage to integrate him completely in the world in which he lives.

Therefore all stories, despite relating actual facts, are obviously biased by my interpretation of his behavior. But having known him for over five years, I don't think I'm getting it wrong.

Want to know more ? Check out the "read me" page.

Thank you to the "Roi Baudoin" foundation ( "Parcours hors pistes" ). The new design, hosting and translations were partially made possible by their financial support.
Many thanks to Marco Pappalardo et Laetitia Bouet for the translation.

115. Colin Maillard – a blind game (Rewind -3-)

When daddy and mommy found out I was blind, they explained it to my sisters right away (and you now know how that turned out with Eva).
With my older sister, Mathilde, how was then 9 years old, things went quite differently.
She got it right away. Her eyes filled with sadness.
Mathilde : "It's a shame... he will never see the landscapes, the mountains, the see".
Daddy (hiding the knot in his throat) : "We'll explain, we'll describe it to him, we'll make him touch it..."

Mat : "Yes, but it's not the same thing..."
Daddy : "of course not, but that's the way it is honey..."
Mat (centering everything around her own interests) : "He won't be able to see cartoons".
Daddy : "He will listen to them and we'll explain when necessary".
Mat (looking for a comeback) "Yes but he won't be able to draw" (Mathilde's passion)
Daddy : "And why not ? It will be harder, we'll have to help him, teach him..."
Mat : "Anyway he won't be able to play too many board games, or hide and seek ... ( pause - then a sparkle in her eyes - ) ... but he'll be able to play Colin Maillard *!"
Daddy swallowed the knot in his throat, kissed Mathilde, and tolde her : "You're right, and he will beat you all ! You're a very bright and creative girl. So you'll see, we'll find lots of ways to take care of him."

After that daddy said (jokingly) that if anybody had said anything bad about Colin Maillard he would've punched him in the face !

Just goes to show once more that we can tell each other everything and dare to use words... as long as there is love and understanding.

*"Colin Maillard" is a game for children in openair : they close they eyes (op put a silk neckerchief before the eyes) and have to recognise and catch the others."
