“We fell asleep in one world and woke up in another.
Suddenly Disney is out of magic,
Paris is no longer romantic,
New York doesn’t stand up anymore,
the Chinese Wall is no longer a fortress,
and Mecca is empty.
Hugs & kisses suddenly become weapons, and not
visiting parents & friends becomes an acte of love.
Suddenly you realize that power, beauty & money are
worthless, & you can’t get the oxygen you’re fighting for.
The world continues its life and it is beautiful.
It only puts humans in cages.
I think it’s sending us a message:
‘You are not necessary. The air, earth, water & sky
without you are fine. When you come back, remember
that you are my guests, not my masters’
(Burgruine Hohenburg, Germany)
