" We'll see !" Suzanne takes life as it comes, with calm and serenity. She lives alone in the farm where she was born in 1930, on the edge of a forest in the Hautes-Vosges. The house is not connected to water or electricity.
According to the seasons, Suzanne cultivates her vegetable garden, prepares her preserves, reads the press, walks in the mountains, welcomes passing visitors. She savors all the little pleasures of life while laughing, having fun embodying this happy sobriety to which her contemporaries aspire.
