A broken tower tells pieces mining history

"All things uncomely and broken, all things worn out and old,
The cry of a child by the roadway, the creak of a lumbering cart,
The heavy steps of the ploughman, splashing the wintry mould,
Are wronging your image that blossoms a rose in the deeps of my heart."

(W.B. Yeats in The rose in my heart)
Liège (B)

Réservez pour votre avenir aujourd’hui

"Sad heart, what will the future bring
To happier men when we are gone?
What golden days shall dawn for them,
Transcending all we gaze upon?"

(J.A. Symonds in A vista)
Liège (B)

Where the winds blow through the industrial remains

"Little wind, blow on the hill-top,
Little wind, blow down the plain;
Little wind, blow up the sunshine,
Little wind, blow off the rain."

(Kate Greenaway, no title, in Under the Window: Pictures & Rhymes for Children)

The end of mining …


“Hinab, ihr Brüder! in den Schacht!
Hinab mit frohem Mut!
Es ist ein Gott, der für uns wacht,
Ein Vater groß und gut!”

(G.F. Stäudlin in Bergknappenlied)

Memories in the shower room


“She said, “Would you like to take a shower?
I’ll show you up to the door”
I said, “Oh, no! no!
I’ve been through this before”
I knew I had to split
But I didn’t know how …”

(Bob Dylan in Motorpsycho nightmare)
