songs about roving, rambling and plain hard luck & photography from the other side …

held to the past, too aware of the pending

Held to the past, too aware of the pending / Chill as the dawn breaks and finds us up for sale / Enter the fog, another low road descending / Away from the cold lust, your house and summertime (The Shins)

    Nach dem Fest: die Schirme zusammengeklappt, die Tische weggeräumt, die Fenster geschlossen, der letzte Rundgang eines Bediensteten, und die Kreise im Rasen leer: die Gäste, eben noch im regen Gespräch über Gott und die Welt, wurden weggebeamt, kreisen nun im Orbit und hoffen auf eine Rematerialisation und eine Rückkehr in diesen Innenhof, der mit Deiner unverwechselbaren Optik, lieber Florian, zu einem Ort der Teleportation wurde. Gruß, Uwe

    After the square in a small French village, the German place, both of something that looks universal. These places talk about an ideal from a community of countries’people, probably. And there is a man (a waiter?) who looks so small if compared to the place, and yet smaller if compared to the ideal planned by some ghost-urbanist.
    But let’s forget my words and let’s look at a beautiful geometrical composition! A great composition, Florian. A beautiful picture. One good reason to walk along with you in your (our) world, sometimes strange, sometimes mundane, always interesting.

    But then the past starts to break down, all we can gather are like those loose dots in a sea of darkness, the rest forgotten. Just keep treading that fine line that is the present, towards…who knows ?
