Face to Face

“Stand face to face, friend…
and unveil the grace in thine eyes,
All care let buffetting winds bear away;
For in the golden house of the singer
the voice of lamentation may not be.”

(H.M.F. Bantock unknown title)

“Sign on the window says “Lonely”

Sign on the door said “No Company Allowed”
Sign on the street says “Y’ Don’t Own Me” …”

(Bob Dylan in Sign on the window)

Adorned Brussel


“Singe, Seele, Gott zum Preise,
Der auf solche weise Weise
Alle Welt so herrlich schmückt.
Der uns durchs Gehör erquickt,
Der uns durchs Gesicht entzückt, …”

I tried to go out for a ride

"I couldn't go to school,
Or out of doors to play.
And all the other little boys
Passed our way."

(E. St. Vincent Millay in The Ballad of the Harp-Weaver)
