Walking to a dead workshop


“My feet are so tired, my brain is so wired
And the clouds are weeping.

Did I hear someone tell a lie?
Did I hear someone’s distant cry?”

(Bob Dylan in Love sick)

But soon it will be Christmas and we will be happy again!

The door has remained open, the miners never come back

"And, as the Cock crew, those who stood before
The Tavern shouted -- "Open then the Door!
"You know how little while we have to stay,
"And, once departed, may return no more.""

(Based on a Persian text by Hakim Omar Khayyám)

Colourful meeting at a former mining site


“Black as coal they fell to their knees
For no one could hear their pleas
They wheezed and wheezed until no more
For the air they breathed was poor.”

(M. Moise in Ode to the miners)

An empty storage rack but stars and dreams on the wall

"O stars and dreams and Gentle Night
O Night and stars return!
And hide me from the hostile light
That does not warm, but burn"
