Formentera, my island by Jac PETIT-JEAN-BORET


Formentera is the smallest and most southern island of the Balears archipelago
Together with Ibiza, they form the group of "Pityusas"
I lived there from 1980 till 1991, twelve years.
I had never thought before that I could belong to an acre of earth,
But there I had my best hours,
there I began to paint,
there I learnt how to sing before an audience,
there I met exceptional people,
there I began to get interest in plants and flowers,
there I learnt how to build a house,
and each time I get back there, my heart flies.

That's how I saw the form of the island the first day I came,
(read the tale in french)

Formentera culminates at 181 m. I got the fancy to simulate the water flood, meter after meter :
