Lovely Lourdes and some garments


“Bernadette, people are searchin’ for the kind of love that we possess
Some go on searchin’ their whole life through
And never find the love I’ve found in you …”

(Four Tops in Bernadette)
Liège (B)

When the fierce cold comes, there is the heater

"Grimmige Kälte Sauset hernieder,
Womit nur deck ich
Des Kindleins Glieder!
O all ihr Engel,
Die ihr geflügelt Wandelt im Wind,
Stillet die Wipfel!
Es schlummert mein kind."

(E. von Geibel, no title in Spanisches Liederbuch)
Leuven (B)

Ils jouent à la grotte de Lourdes

"When children are playing alone on the green,
In comes the playmate that never was seen.
When children are happy and lonely and good,
The Friend of the Children comes out of the wood."

(R.L. Stevenson in The unseen playmate)

Bring it to me, I’m waiting!


“in all eternity
there’s less pain and suffering
than just this one life”

(Haiku by Senkyũ)

The empty shrine

“There is a shrine whose golden gate
Was opened by the Hand of God;
It stands serene, inviolate,
Though millions have its pavement trod;
As fresh, as when the first sunrise
Awoke the lark in Paradise.”

(Digby Mackworth Dolben in The shrine)
