To belong – Me and Alice II


“Before either of us knew it, we belonged to each other.”

(Friedrich Hölderlin)



“Everything is seed.”

(Novalis, Philosophical Writings)

My window II


“The heart is a house with two rooms. In one lives suffering, in the other, joy. One mustn’t laugh too loud or one will wake the sorrow in the room next door.”

(Chinese Proverb)

Me and Alice – a double portrait


“Let life happen to you. Believe me: life is in the right, always.”

(Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a young poet)

Alice talking to me


“True life is lived when tiny changes occur.”

(Leo Tolstoy)



cold is in the air,
an aura of ice
and phlegm.
All day I’ve built
a lifetime and now
the sun sinks to
undo it.
The horizon bleeds
and sucks its thumb.
The little red thumb
goes out of sight.
And I wonder about
this lifetime with myself,
this dream I’m living.
I could eat the sky
like an apple
but I’d rather
ask the first star:
why am I here?
why do I live in this house?
who’s responsible?

(Anne Sexton, The Fury of Sunsets)
