In the beginning, in the beginning
Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning, long time ago”

Is this Caracas?


“Frankie pulled out a pistol.
Pulled out a forty-four.
Gun went off a rootie-toot-toot
And Albert fell on the floor.
He was her man but he done her wrong.”

(Bob Dylan in Frankie&Albert)

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 …”

Cooling down that shopping


“I saw with open eyes

Singing birds sweet
Sold in the shops
For the people to eat,
Sold in the shops of
Stupidity Street.

I saw in vision
The worm in the wheat,
And in the shops nothing
For people to eat;
Nothing for sale in
Stupidity Street.”

(R. Hodgson in Stupidity Street)

The tranquility of the desert


“This is the land which ye
Shall divide by lot. And neither division nor unity
Matters. This is the land. We have our inheritance.”

(T.S. Eliot in Ash-Wednesday 1930)
