Wilderness of water

Easy day to be a seagull where Irish Sea and river Mersey meet.
Just unfold the wings, then the bird will fly, easy way learning to fly.
The fish down in the water probably never get seasick.

Walk inspired by “Restlessjo” and her captivating “Monday walk” themes.

Not a pirate captain seriously leaning on a parking ticket,
but a creative local artist who collects wreckage for his project.
It is a continuing process, over the years – mostly in stormy weather.
Because the river and the sea can’t keep “curious fingers” from the creation.
Both river Mersey and Irish Sea both supply and steal material at the same time.

A row of benches with their backs facing the river Mersey,
– a sensible choice in this kind of weather,
the waves beat over them incessantly.
Probably why the benches are unused right now.?

Color hunting

Walk through colors in the city of Liverpool.

A paradise for us bookworms.

Everday heroes on their way in action, in Liverpool as well.

Think the sky over Liverpool sometimes gets a little tired of the discussion
between sports supporters whether the city is red or blue.
Liverpool is a multi-colored city, no doubt about it.

The charm of cities is often not only streamlined.
Not all that is served as appetizers to lure are the soul.
All cities have spots with room for changes or development.

Winterly mood

Winter landscape in Alsace, not much white (snow) the closest on white
– it’s the memorial crosses from 1944 on the Colmar Pocket Memorial battlefield.
Respectively just, northeast of Kaysersberg and northwest of Colmar.

Now in january 2020 much more peaceful and idyllic in muted colors.

Insists on being alive

Whatever happens, there is always a “green wave” in Paris.
Okay there can be funny quirky places where the red light is on.
But then it often own fault because of too late arrival.

Walk inspired by “Restlessjo” and her captivating “Monday walk” themes.

There are recognizable changes,
but mostly without the changes steals recognition.
Even though you know what you get, it will never be a boring habit.
Not always these changes are seen, before get them told.
Paris insists on being alive all the time
– at so-called “crooked” times of the day as well.

Kind of rocking culture

Montmartre now, place for art, love, eat, drink and song.

And I’m far, far away
With my head up in the clouds
And I’m far, far away
With my feet down in the crowds
Lettin’ loose around the world
But the call of home is loud
Still is loud
I’ve seen the Paris lights from high upon Montmartre
And felt the silence hanging low in No-Man’s-Land
*part of “Far far away” song with the old rockband “Slade”*

Abandoned of colors

A weather-related gray and foggy afternoon in the Alsace area.
What’s more relevant than visiting an abandoned factory.
No colors added, they are natural and not color regulated.
The place is well hidden by trees and shrubs, hard to find.
– but the walls are decorated, so there have been visits before.
Hard to see what has been of production in the building.

Dark side of humanity

Life leaves its sign of traces, for better or worse,
which even sunrise or sunset can’t hide.

We ordinary people are only human beings, with all our human shortcomings,
that is why we have chosen politicians with overall responsibility.
To make the right decisions for everyone including the earth
The history is full of examples of they not lifting the common yoke.
That war against civilians isn’t part of the solution, but part of the problem.
The wounds around the world often end up becoming museums instead.
We don’t get smarter but mostly end up in doing business as usual.

One of all these “museums” is the french village of Oradour-sur-Glane,
a monumental image of the shadow side of our so-called humanity.
Untouched since 1944, around 650 inhabitants were executed – only six survived.
