Part 7: Resolving into high lights

Koniklijke Musea voor Schone Kunsten van Belgie, that is the next highlight for me, ou en francais: Musées royaux des Beaux-Arts de Belgique, de la country that comes in two languages, maybe that is why it has become home of Europe, i don't know, but somehow it seems right, and the paintings in the museum reflect this openness, too, Magritte and Monet and Miro, Dali and Duchamp and Dix, all next to each other, paintings and sculptures, colours and black and whites, oil on canvas, acrylic on wood, water on paper, i could float away here, i could simply sit down and resolve into circles of light, what a way to go this would be, but i stay, so much more to see, so much more places to come

and so i go again, out into the world of streets and skies, of non air con atmosphere, passing the Palace Royale, smiling as i recognize it, this is where i stopped with the car yesterday, was it really only yesterday, it doesn't feel like it. and behind it, the Parc de Bruxelles, where i linger along the lines of trees and rest at the foot of a white statue, where i listen to the water fountain and sit in the shades that play with the rays of light in the trees. i hadn't expected any of this, i had no idea, but then those things that come without expectation are the best anyway, the ones that just happen, that take you by surprise, that take you by the hand like long lost friends that are finally found you again in a side street of life, just in the moment they wish you were here
