COBWEBS

cobweb

THE COBWEBS IN MY HEAD NEED TO BE CLEARED, NEED TO BE CLEARED

THE COBWEBS IN MY HEAD ARE GONNA DISAPPEAR.

 

THE ROAD IS CALLING, IT NEEDS TO BE WALKED, IT NEEDS TO BE WALKED

THE ROAD IS CALLING AND I'M GONNA WALK.

 

MY BACKPACK IS READY, IT NEEDS TO TRAVEL, IT NEEDS TO TRAVEL

MY BACKPACK AND I WILL SOON HIT THE ROAD.

 

SO DON'T WAIT FOR ME BABY, I WON'T COME HOME, WON'T COME HOME TONIGHT

MY FEET ARE ITCHING TO EXPLORE NEW GROUND.

 

SOME DAY I'LL BE BACK THAT'S FOR SURE, THAT'S FOR SURE

BUT RIGHT NOW I'M WALKING RIGHT OUT OF THIS DOOR.

 

(Anders gezegd: ik ga een paar weken met verlof en deze blog zal wat spinnenwebben verzamelen in afwachting van mijn terugkomst... Have fun bloggies!)

STREET ART

grafiti

Recently I discoverd an amazing street.

grafitib

At first sight, I was struck by the coloured lines of a gate, echoing the classic lines of the building they shelter.

grafiti2

Next, I was drawn into a very peculiar world, full of wonderful creatures.

grafiti4

With growing admiration, I walked through the alley.

grafiti6

The signature of Jonas became familiar to me.

grafiti10

Surely, this is a fairy inspiring a great artist.

grafiti14

 And what about this magnificent piece of science fiction?

grafiti17

Or this garage door, which is in fact a gateway to hell!

grafiti19

Whether abstract or figurative...

grafiti20

The quality of the paintings is truly amazing.

grafiti18

Sometimes, a few lines suffice.

grafiti21

Maybe a future Keith Haring left his mark on the walls.

grafiti12

However fierce the sharks and monsters...

grafiti22

... however chaotic the many tags and graphs, they couldn't scare me away from this alley. Up and down I went, walking  through living art.

LIFE GUARD

Patiently they stare at the sea in turmoil. When imprudent surfers or swimmers brave the waves, their red flag goes up and their hooter beacons them back to the shore. Barefooted, notwithstanding the cold water and wind, they pull up their hoods of their windbreakers and try to stay warm. A bit further, their boat and truck are ready to assist any urgent intervention. However, the day unfolds without any major event. A few hoots an hour, cold feet... But when they go home in the evening, their heart and soul are filled with the sound, the smell and feel of the sea and the easy friendship of their colleagues. Happy to be alive. Happy to be a lifeguard.

DANS MIJN LIEF, DANS EN VOEL JE LICHAAM LEVEN

OP HET RITME VAN DE GOLVEN DIE MET JE SPELEN

MIJN OGEN LATEN JE NIET LOS, ZE STRELEN ELK VAN JE GEBAREN

ZE WAKEN OVER JE, BEHOEDEN JE VOOR ALLE GEVAREN

WIJ SAMEN OP DE WERELD, HELEMAAL ALLEEN

BIRDIE

birds18

 

birds12

Birdie and bird patiently wail till my picture is made. I was struck by the air of easy trust between the owl and the girl. The harmony of the brown speckled feathers and the girls' brown hair, but also the watchful eyes of both create an appealing, somewhat mysterious effect. I could write stories about them, and the title would be "Tales of the unknown..."

BAND OF FAIRIES

green fairy

The fairy mother prepares her daughter for the feast. She trades her pearls for the green beads of her daughter. A final adjustment of her wristband and than the green fairy is ready...

green fairy3

 Together with her companions, she flies off, trailing her shawl like a set of wings.

green fairy5

To the passionate sounds of trumpets and drums, the fairies fan the air.

green fairy17

 Their feet follow the beat.

green fairy8

Dance, dance with me fairies, until the cobbles of the ancient castle move under our feet.

green fairy12

The drums will follow our path.

green fairy20

And when at last young and old fairies alike retrace their steps...

green fairy30

I invite you in my boat, and for one more song I'll see you off to distant shores.

GREEN FAIRY

green fairy2

Green fairy, dance for me,

Let your feet fly to the beat of the drums,

Let your veil trail along my dreams.

Your eyes sparkle, full of tales

Of underwood and things unknown.

Your hands weave patterns

Reminiscent of ferns and lochs.

 

Dance for me green fairy,

Dance and let your laughter peal

Like a thousand tiny bells -

Bubbles sparkling in the sun

And popping in a myriad of colors.

Green fairy, dance for me

And let their droplets refresh my skin.

MAGNIFICENT DEVILS

Who knows the artist who made the sculptures below? I photographed them  this weekend, during the "kasteelfeesten" in Westerlo. Unfortunately, I lost her card when running to get shelter from a sudden downpour (and ended up soaked to the bone and none the wiser). If you can help me, I would be very grateful. Thanks beforehand!

T-SHIRT

Rock

Concertje meegepikt, en wat zie ik? Mijn t-shirt op het podium! Na afloop toch eens even in mijn kast gaan kijken... oef, hij lag er nog. Vond het wel grappig de hele tijd naar mijn t-shirt te staren. Ook al wou ik het niet, telkens weer dwaalden mijn ogen af naar de man met "mijn" t-shirt. Hij zal zeker gedacht hebben dat hij er een enorme fan bijhad :-)

DANSERTJE

Foot2

Twee jongetjes spelen voetbal.

foot11

Met een bewonderenswaardige concentratie focussen ze zich op de bal.

foot15

Een tackle hier, een dribble daar...

foot14

 Ze doen me denken aan dansertjes met een fantastische beheersing van elk gebaar.

foot

Die vreugde van een goal, die ontlading...

foot4

Die spanning en suspens...

foot5

Die blijheid ook, dat geluk dat voelbaar is tot in de topjes van je tenen.

foot13

Twee jongetjes voetballen en ik voel me volmaakt gelukkig dat ik dit mag zien.
