The joy of colors


“I live my life in primary colors

I let praise or blame fall where they may.
I hold my soul in equanimity …”

(Sister Helen Prejean from the song cycle The Deepest Desire: Four Meditations on Love)
Namur (B)

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)

Up there we can look out on an empty square


“O had I wings like to a dove,
then should I from these troubles fly,
to wilderness would I remove,
to spend my life, and there to die.”

(W. Leighton in O had I wings …)
Liège (B)

When all has done …


“What shall I do now? What shall I do?

I shall rush out as I am, and walk the street
With my hair down, so. What shall we do to-morrow?
What shall we ever do?”

(T.S. Eliot in Waste Land, 1922)
