Sunset in loneliness


“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)
Brussel (B)

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, …”

(B.H. Brockes from Irdisches Vergnügen in Gott)

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)
Charleroi (B)

A disturbed way of living

“The best thing for disturbances of the spirit”, replied Merlyn, beginning to puff and blow, 
“is to learn.”

(T.H. White in The sword in the stone)

Festive lights under a highway

Festive lights under a highway

“The light in this place is really bad
Like being at the bottom of a stream
Any minute now
I’m expecting to wake up from a dream.”

(Bob Dylan in Dreamin’ of you)
