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)

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

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)

Broken industries

Broken industries

“Broken bottles, broken plates
Broken switches, broken gates
Broken dishes, broken parts
Streets are filled with broken hearts
Broken words never meant to be spoken
Everything is broken.”

(Bob Dylan in Everything is broken)
