The joy of colors


“I live my life in primary colors

I let praise or blame fall where they may.
I hold my soul in equanimity …”

(Sister Helen Prejean from the song cycle The Deepest Desire: Four Meditations on Love)
Namur (B)

The hollow house


“But age apace
Comes at last to all;
And a lone house filled
With the cricket’s call;
And the scampering mouse
In the hollow wall.”

(Walter de la Mare in Alone)
Liège (B)

The creation of a wall


“When the creation was new
and all the stars shone in their first splendour,
the gods held their assembly in the sky and sang
‘Oh, the picture of perfection! the joy unalloyed!'”

(Rabindranath Tagore in Gitanjali no. 78)

Is she still staying upstairs?


“Front door shut, back door too,
Blinds pulled down, what’ cha gonna do?
Gotta step it up and go-Yeah, go.”

(Bob Dylan in Step it up and go)
Herstal (B)

Colourful are the signals


“At times I think there are no words
But these to tell what’s true
And there are no truths outside the Gates of Eden”

(Bob Dylan in Gates of Eden)
Liège (B)
