“Twenty-first. Night. Monday.
Silhouette of the capitol in darkness.
Some good-for-nothing — who knows why—
made up the tale that love exists on earth.
People believe it, maybe from laziness
or boredom, and live accordingly:
they wait eagerly for meetings, fear parting,
and when they sing, they sing about love.
But the secret reveals itself to some,
and on them silence settles down…
I found this out by accident
and now it seems I’m sick all the time.”
- Anna Akhmatova,1917
Die Burg Katz is a castle above St. Goarshausen in Rheinland-Pfalz, Southwestern Germany. It stands on a ledge looking downstream from the riverside. It was built in 1371 by Count William II of Katzenelnbogen and bombarded by Napoleon in 1806, then rebuilt in the late 1800’s. It is now privately owned and not open to visitors. In 1435, the Counts of Katzenelnbogen were the first to plant Riesling grapes in their vineyard - the wine now is very popular and representative of typical German Rhein wines.
The neighboring castle is Burg Maus.
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,
Prone to leave the God I love;
Here’s my heart, O take and seal it;
Seal it for Thy courts above.
This is beyond amazing!
Pablo Picasso, Nude, 1931
Hunter S. Thompson
