Safety car


Amsterdam (NL)

The hollow house


“But age apace
Comes at last to all;
And a lone house filled
With the cricket’s call;
And the scampering mouse
In the hollow wall.”

(Walter de la Mare in Alone)
Liège (B)

As I’m ramblin’ you can travel with me too …


“So it’s fare thee well my own true love
We’ll meet another day, another time
It ain’t the leavin’
That’s a-grievin’ me
But my true love who’s bound to stay behind”

(Bob Dylan in Farewell)
Liège (B)

The creation of a wall


“When the creation was new
and all the stars shone in their first splendour,
the gods held their assembly in the sky and sang
‘Oh, the picture of perfection! the joy unalloyed!'”

(Rabindranath Tagore in Gitanjali no. 78)
Namur (B)

Torture of art


“The heart asks pleasure – first,

And then excuse from pain.
And then those little anodynes
That deaden suffering.

And then, to go to sleep;
And then, if it should be
The will of its Inquisitor,
The liberty to die.”

(E. Dickinson no title from Poems from Emily Dickinson)
Antwerpen (B)
