Budapest in Black & White

My personal impression of this beautiful, inspiring city, captured in words & pictures

Between the words
lay an endless silence
edged with old wishes
and brand new impressions

Who I was
who you are
who we were always gonna be
and how we didn’t know it yet

 

365 days project – week 18 & 19

Back home after a little holiday!

Our friends went on a wonderful city-trip & came home with a bunch of new memories & some pretty pictures.

And they can’t wait to share them with you…
Hope you’ll have fun with our double update!

Never again…

4th of May

Where did the war come from?

This is a time of peace. Or at least it is for me. Right here. Right now. In the safety of my home.
This is a time of prosperity. A time of endless possibilities. A time of hope, happiness & love. It is for me.  And hopefully for you.

But this is also a time of war. A time of death. A time of threats. A time when fragile bonds might be broken. A time in which we walk a thin line; hand in hand or all alone.
Today, while I sit here behind my computer (coffee within reach, music playing & peace surrounding me like a familiar friend), people are out there suffering, starving & dying. Mothers, fathers, children. Lives falling away this very minute. As I type these words, I feel something that could be my soul, wondering how life works. Why must history always repeat itself, spinning round & round like a broken record? Why is it that we never seem to learn?

4th of May; our day to remember those who were killed or murdered during or after the Second World War.We stand together to remember & to honor the death. We stand side by side, stand tall and say; never again, never again.      
But not far from where we stand conflict wins ground. Close to home dangerous games are being played, plans are made & promises are broken. And all of a sudden peace seems such a fragile word.

4th of May; a moment of silence in which I want remember & honor. Never again, never again like a mantra in my head. But also a moment to look around and realize what peace really means, how conflicts start and where war really comes from. Who am I in the bigger picture? Am I not too small to make a difference, not too insignificant to take a stand?
In this sacred moment of silence I wonder how far my voice might reach when I’d dare to stand tall & whisper;never again

There was no alarm
No siren filling the sky
No warning sign
No soldiers striding into the streets
So, where did the war come from?

Worth the wait
