Warm welcome way-in


”Try imagining a place where it’s always safe and warm

“Come in,” she said, “I’ll give you shelter from the storm””

(Bob Dylan in Shelter from the storm)

Cooling down that shopping


“I saw with open eyes

Singing birds sweet
Sold in the shops
For the people to eat,
Sold in the shops of
Stupidity Street.

I saw in vision
The worm in the wheat,
And in the shops nothing
For people to eat;
Nothing for sale in
Stupidity Street.”

(R. Hodgson in Stupidity Street)
Brussels region (B)

Closed in zebra


“Oh my only friend, my best beloved,

the gates are open in my house –
do not pass by like a dream.”

(R. Tagore in Gitanjali no. 22)

Sunset in loneliness


“Sign on the window says “Lonely”

Sign on the door said “No Company Allowed”
Sign on the street says “Y’ Don’t Own Me” …”

(Bob Dylan in Sign on the window)
Brussel (B)

The bodhisattva doesn’t see the dragon


“Yes, if you can make the dragons laugh
If you can make the dragons,
that guard the treasures, laugh
You’ll get the treasure!
Yes, you’ll get it!”

(D. Manneke in Een draak van een canon; translation T. Wittermans in A dragon of a canon)
