Age of Life

"Windstille: The first age needs wind vanes of imagination. The event has already begun with dreaming. Ginkgo Biloba: Imagination is caught up and quickly surpassed by the fullness of reality.  Philemon and Baucis: The world had become comfortable. Will it stay that way? The time of the zenith is over. The metamorphoses of autumn end in the darkness of age. Butterfly: not only seagulls flutter over rubble, the weather-beaten, the decay, there is something flapping fiercely in the air ... it is flying skywards." Karl Krolow
