The silent chimney from a blast furnace


“Wie ein vulkanischer Berg lag er im Weiten. Manchmal

flammend. Manchmal im Rauch. Traurig und göttlich.
Nur eine nahe vielleicht, ihm anliegende Ortschaft
bebte.”

(R.M. Rilke in Fünf Gesänge)

2018 in the trash and then towards 2019

2019 will lead us to the “Bureau Chef de Pause”!
What a comforting thought.
All the best for your next year!

Rusty structures in a landscape

"Man passes down the way of years,
And ruins mark his trail;
He buildeth and the hand of time
Wipes out his structures frail."

(Ch. I. Ives in The All-enduring)

Dying landscape

Dying landscape

“If the day is done,
if birds sing no more,
if the wind has flagged tired,
then draw the veil of darkness thick upon me,
even as thou hast wrapt the earth
with the coverlet of sleep
and tenderly closed the petals
of the drooping lotus at dusk.”

(R. Tagore from Gitanjali)

Chant of workmen

Chant of workmen

“In this street
There is no beginning, no movement, no peace and no end
But noise without speech, food without taste.
Without delay, without haste
We would build the beginning and the end of this street.
We build the meaning:
A Church for all
And a job for each
Each man to his work”

(T.S. Eliot in The Rock)
