La solution ECO

“Oh the time will come up
When the winds will stop
And the breeze will cease to be breathin’
Like the stillness in the wind
’Fore the hurricane begins
The hour when the ship comes in”

(Bob Dylan in When the ship comes in)
Charleroi (B)

When renovation comes to a standstill

Rhythms of industry

Rhythms of industry

"Is it beyond thee to be glad with the gladness of this rhythm? 
To be tossed and lost and broken in the whirl of this fearful joy?

All things rush on, they stop not, they look not behind, 
no power can hold them back, they rush on."

(R. Tagore in Gitanjali no. 70)
Maasmechelen-Uikhoven (B)

Lost wheels in the heat

Lost wheels in the heat

“I’m just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round
I really love to watch them roll
No longer riding on the merry-go-round
I just had to let it go.”

(John Lennon in Watching the wheels)
Amay (B)

I’m renovating

I'm renovating

“I thought of killing myself because I am only a bricklayer
and you a woman who loves the man who runs a drug store.
I don’t care like I used to; I lay bricks straighter than I
used to and I sing slower handling the trowel afternoons.
When the sun is in my eyes and the ladders are shaky and the
mortar boards go wrong, I think of you.”

(C. Sandburg in Bricklayer love)
