Today I stumbled over an FB update that fascinated me. It pointed to videos taken two days ago at the north exit of my favorite tunnel. Besides showing the door to what I consider my earthly nostalgia paradise, the images of the train slowly making it’s way through the snow made me think of …
… Slow Train Coming, a 1979 Bob Dylan Album which I listened to often at a turning point in my life. Long before the recent financial turmoils, the lyrics fit our times better than ever.
„… People starving and thirsting, grain elevators are bursting
Oh, you know it costs more to store the food than it do to give it
They say loose your inhibitions, follow your own ambitions
They talk about a life of brotherly love, show me someone who knows how to live it
There’s slow, slow train coming up around the bend. …“
I wish us all a ton of brotherly love and an eternal ride on the slow train.
