When it was still a garage

“Way back when I was just a kid
There was a place I loved to go
It was called Stutzman’s garage
You could learn what you didn’t know

Because folks would come in just to get
A little help with their car
Uncle Walter knew how to fix it
If you didn’t have to drive too far”

(M. Lott in Old Stutzman’s Garage)

We are already on our way to the hotel

“It’s been nice seeing you, you read me like a book
If you ever want to reach me, you know where to look
Baby, I’ll be at the same hotel”

(Bob Dylan in Under your spell)

Were petrol prices too high here?

“So tell us will you oil companies
Tell us why
You jacked up the prices again
And we shall watch the pigs fly
Soon we shall all just walk or run
Because petrol prices will just be too high.”

(A. Steble in Petrol)

De l’amusement sans fin


“Wer ist beglückter als du?

Nichts als Vergnügen und Ruh!
Spielwerk und Zucker vollauf, und noch Karossen im Lauf,
alles besorgt und bereit,
daß nur mein Prinzchen nicht schreit.
Was wird da künftig erst sein?
Schlafe, mein Prinzchen, schlaf ein.”

(F.W. Gotter in Wiegenlied)

Prix et qualité


“All things are created by the Om;
The love-form is His body.
He is without form, without quality, without decay:
Seek thou union with Him!”

(R. Tagore in Songs of Kabir no. 26)
