Görlitz, Germany

It’s my last morning in the beautiful town of Görlitz. I love this place. Nothing got ruined in WW2. Many of the churches and buildings are 500-700 years old. Jakob Boehme, the philosopher/mystic, is interred here. I think I could stay here forever. Get a little plot of land up in the mountains somewhere. Dry my clothes on a clothesline. Hang Easter eggs in the trees. Tend a garden. Grow roses & plant things like white asparagus, jalapenos, green peppers, tomatoes, onions, and so on.
And live out my days
until someone plants me.

But in the meantime, I’ve got places to go…

“You are crazy my child. You must go to Berlin, where the lunatics are.” ~ famous 19th century song

And people to see…

“People are like dirt. They can either nourish you and help you grow as a person or they can stunt your growth and make you wilt and die.” ~ Plato

And I already know I’m not gonna die.
Not in this lifetime anyway.


There’s a train in the rain waiting for me…
and a book waiting
to write me.

Viva Berlin!



One thought on “Görlitz, Germany

  1. I have never been to Europe but am quite certain I would love all of the 500-700 yr old buildings.. The USA has a few nice buildings scattered about.. But our history does not tug at one..

    you are having one helluva journey and I’m so happy for you my friend.
    (write the write and you will live forever)
