2019 will lead us to the “Bureau Chef de Pause”!
What a comforting thought.
All the best for your next year!
"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) Clabecq (B)
“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)
“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)
“It’s bright in the heavens and the wheels are flying
Fame and honor never seem to fade
The fire’s gone out but the light is never dying
Who says I can’t get heavenly aid?”
(Bob Dylan in Ain’t talkin’)
