Not Kansas, eeh...

Very Deutsch, I'd say: Waschbeton/washed-out concrete, a broom and the dirt frame of a signboard removed long ago. Subject matter enough for a tenement blues.

Markus, eeh - no need to say who inspired me, hm? ;-)

Really, I was standing there, looking at the door and thought: That's truly a MSpring theme! Easter Sunday. And yes, I often think in the terms of prisons of philistinism seeing things like this.

Your combinations of quotes and stills always open a space of contemplation.
I think they create visions ripping the surface of ordinary.

in other words: connections (or collisions) between streams of feeling who would have never merge together.
And these feelings find new horizons of sense.

very rare nowadays.

ρομπερτ, somehow I am under the impression you have been living in Germany for some time (must be from browsing your whole blog, ;-)) so I guess you understand what I meant to say. Have a nice May, yes!

LS, to me it is mostly collisions. Connection is what the readers make out of this. The most interesting part of this blogging experience, though. Thanks again very much for your always in-depth and thoughtful comments.
