Roadtrip 2013 Sunset Drive through The Falaise Pocket Normandy France


This is what a roadtrip is about: driving, and then be so lucky to drive alongside a beautiful sunset on a straight road, and… just having your dashboard camera rolling. The smooth sound of the engine running in cruise control mode, the wind, being almost alone, some cars and trucks passing on the highway, and the sun dancing with and through the trees: these are magical moments! This is also one of the historic battlefields of World War 2: The Falaise pocket, where the German Second Army was trapped by the Allied Forces, this gives this drive an extra emotional extra… For the History on this devastating battlefield see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Falaise_pocket Last year I was on these roads too and I also made a video (only with ‘still’ pictures, see: http://youtu.be/9Bbk6deXpiM a remarkable set of coincidences happened there, but that’s always the case when ‘you have no roadplan, but only the road’…

Magic

 

I feel there is some magic in the air
and it is looking for a home and
crying out, and all I have to do is
let it in and open up, O yes I know
I have the key to welcome this new
life, the rhythm of my heart beating
with Yours when we embrace and
dance, so now I shall surrender to
the music of Your soul and opening
the door I’ll give You room to breathe.

The Flames Of Change

This an I Ching reading inspired by something that happened two years ago. While ordening files on my computer, I stumbled on a 1min video I recorded in 2010 while attending a great joyful fire party in open air. I filmed the fire itself, but it wasn’t until now that I noticed a detail that didn’t strike me then. In the video below I included it and you can find out my thoughts & the connection with the I Ching on this remarkable coincidence. It proves to show that our vision on Time too often is limited by our restricted views on its development. Take your “time” ;-) , it’s a 22m22s video, andt that’s not a coincidence either, since afterwards I noticed it was the 22nd video I uploaded on Youtube :-)

Universe

Astrophysicist Dr. Neil DeGrasse Tyson was asked by a reader of TIME magazine, “What is the most astounding fact you can share with us about the Universe?” This is his answer:

My poetic reply:

Enclosed I roam from star to star, I travel endlessly,
I whisper and my breath unfolds behind me as a vale,
a shooting star, a comet on its way and growing, growing
with each light-year passing by, O yes, there is much
pleasure in this roaming , it is creation of a Master Plan
and still this roaming is continuing, and when from time
to time I reach the boundaries of my confinement,
I feel a sudden shiver, as if some unseen hand is there
to push me back, or could it be the vale behind 
that keeps on  coming back, I wonder. So here I am,
inside and out, no matter how the journey goes,
there always will be worlds to enter and others then
to leave behind, the roaming will continue, on and on,
no ending, no beginning, so is the roaming in the Womb
of Being, the cavern of His Master’s Plan.

Potemkin

 

To all with ears: they hear, to all with eyes: they see.
Let’s not be blind to all what’s written and to all
that flows, wherever you may go you leave something
behind, so is the memory the mirror of the mind
and with each footstep there is more to tell, o yes:
wherever you may go you leave something behind.
To all with heart, to all with love: they shall inherit
paradise, wait not, moments are wings, and to a dying
day they are as intimate as to your lips a kiss, so then:
fly high above the setting sun, and rise above the oceans,
open, breathe deep, drink, and be, for in the end remember:
to all with ears they’ll hear, to all with eyes they’ll see.

Love is in the air

A poem read on the way to Santiago de Compostella in the company of two love birds :-)

Quelques mots d’amour

Arrivant a sept heures du matin à Liseux ~ Basilique de Saint-Thérèse ~ au debut de printemps ~ j’ai pris ce vidéo. Moment de méditation, chants d’oiseaux et une chanson sur le radio… et tout à coup les lumiéres de nuit s’éteignent et un oiseau s’envole…

Merry Christmas ~ Ave Maria

(met dank aan Luuc Christaense ~ @inspiraties ~ als wegwijzer naar deze goddelijke emotie)

Home

Yes, I must confess again: I like to float in,
float on water, a surface somewhere in
between a mountain high and river deep,
this floating then becoming ship at the horizon,
I drink deep, the more the getting there
the less I see, the more consumed the more
your Light is piercing, one single Moon beam
in the darkest night, a golden touch to warm up
icy water, O Yes, I must confess again I like to float
in, float on  water somewhere in between,
a yesterday embracing time, a you, a me, and I

Jorma Kaukonen – Genesis

Time has come for us to pause
And think of living as it was
Into the future we must cross, must cross
I’d like to go with you
And I’d like to go with you
You say I’m harder than a wall
A marble shaft about to fall
I love you dearer than them all, them all
So let me stay with you
So let me stay with you
And as we walked into the day
Skies of blue had turned to grey
I might have not been clear to say, to say
I never looked away
I never looked away
And though I’m feeling you inside
My life is rolling with the tide
I’d like to see it be an open ride
Along with you
Going along with you
The time we borrowed from ourselves
Can’t stay within a vaulted well
And living turns into a lender’s will
So let me come with you
And let me come with you
And when we came out into view
And there I found myself with you
When breathing felt like something new, new
Along with you
Going along with you

(Jorma performing around 1990 at D.O.C. Music Club Studio on Italian TV)
