in the mirrors

Reflections on a Monday morning


A mirror image is a reflected duplication of an object that appears identical but reversed. As an optical effect it results from reflection off of substances such as a mirror or water.

A reflection of an exact image is the closest thing to you-so that you can see it-but it’s far enough away so that you really understand it. There is real life in this movie, but it hovers just an inch above reality.

But the first differentiation of its reflection in the manifested World is purely Spiritual, and the Beings generated in it are not endowed with a consciousness that has any relation to the one we conceive of.

Smoky quartz is an excellent stone for removing negativity and negative energy of any kind and transforming them to positive energy. It is also a very protective and grounding stone. It brings physical, protection, psychic protection and protection from negative…

 Rose quartz is another healing crystal that is not necessarily closely associated with vertigo, but is sometimes used to relieve vertigo symptoms. Its calming and cooling energy works well across several Chakras, particularly the Crown and Heart Chakras. It helps to promote creativity and relaxation, and to ease emotional and physical unbalance and reduce stress. This stone of unconditional love that opens the heart chakra to all forms of love: self-love, family love, platonic love, and romantic love. The high energy of quartz gives rose quartz the property of enhancing love in virtually any situation. Bringing love in to life and daily situations not only brings inner warmth, but it also lowers stress and soothes those around it. Rose quartz is a very happy and loving stone. Rose quartz is used…

Bap’s Rap – James. G. Brown

Jimmy Brown or Steve McClown
Used to see him around town
Starred in Jesus Christ Superstar
In his dreams, he’s a star
Been to Broadway was in West Side Story
No sorry, that’s another story

Been confused
The town was wrong
Broadway Ballymena
You got half a crown
Wanna buy a bottle of Silver Crown
Too expensive, cut pretencions
Drawbridge will do just fine , for the time.

Served the Queen
In the Armed Forces
Quick to learn, he got promoted
Helicopter pilot, no doubt about it
Parachute jumper, off  his bonkers
The US special forces looked him up,
Couldn’t find him
They gave up………………

Went touring, or just whoring
Dunno, I give up
Played lead guitar for Buddy Holly
It’s a pity, wasted talent
A star when he was only five
Buddy was dead, didn’t survive.
Wasn’t alive

He thought he looked like Bob Dylan
Got his guitar from the bed
He took the part, became a minstrel
On the dole, strumming and drummng
Harmonica player
With Hogey Carmichael

When time allowed
He went fishing
Caught a pike, a sixteen pounder
Had a photo in the paper
No, mistaken
That was Carrots,will talk later

Métropolitain: Le métro de Paris



De eerste metrolijn in Parijs werd opgeleverd tijdens de Wereld Expo en de Olympische spelen van 1900. Het metronet heeft inmiddels 16 lijnen met een
lengte van 
220 km en 301 stations. In 2011 werden dagelijks 4.13 miljoen
personen vervoerd en inmiddels zitten we al op 4.5 miljoen reizigers per dag.
Een onvoorstelbaar aantal. Van deze 16 lijnen zijn er inmiddels 2 lijnen waar volautomatisch gereden wordt, dat wil zeggen zonder bestuurder.

De Parijse fotograaf Janol Apin heeft zich laten inspireren door de namen van de Parijse metrostations. Hij heeft in 1990 een project uitgevoerd, waarbij de namen van 120 metro haltes visueel zijn uitgebeeld en op foto vastgelegd.
Niet van alle foto’s kon ik zijn bedoeling en humor achterhalen, want los van kennis van de Franse taal is besef van (culturele) geschiedenis soms ook noodzakelijk.
Zo staat in Billancourt de Renault fabriek en is een Abbesse een overste van een vrouwenklooster. Van de meeste mensen verwacht…

Unclear Fear

Unclear Fear

It is night
There is no light
Waking up in the darkness
What is my plight

Afraid, unable, instable
Walking in the darkness
Can’t reach the light
My will is to flee

I’m in a plight
The darkness persists
I insist
Need light for my flight

Release from my plight
Put up a fight
Conquer my fear
It’s all unclear

A flash came from nowhere
Sudden and clear
My fear vanished
But it’s still unclear

Got to find out the reason for this
If the problem persists
Does God exist
To help my conquist
