What about “halfland”?


“At times I think there are no words
But these to tell what’s true
And there are no truths outside the Gates of Eden”

(Bob Dylan in Gates of Eden)
Vlaardingen (NL)

In the distance the children are playing


“Let us go dance and play,

And look for violets in the lane,
And ramble far away
To gather primroses,
That in the woodland grow,
And hunt for oxslips, or if yet
The blades of blue bells show …”

(R.S. Bridges in A child’s hymn)
Liège (B)

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)
Liège (B)

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)
Liège (B)
