Every Tuesday, we share photographs from our recent or long-ago travels, or just everyday stuff that appealed to our mindful eye and sharp sensibilities as captured through fleeting images.
Basilica St. Emmeram (Regensburg)
This was one of our main stops when I did a one-day tour in Regensburg. Founded in about 739, this basilica or abbey has definitely withstood the test of time.
“Yet the bells, when they sounded told me sorrowfully of change in everything; told me of their own age, and my pretty Dora’s youth; and of the many, never old, who had lived and loved and died, while the reverberations of the bells had hummed through the rusty armour of the Black Prince hanging up within, and, motes upon the deep of Time, had lost themselves in air, as circles do in water.”
“Music I discovered that night, was a sanctuary, a safe place to hide, a place where scars didn’t matter, they didn’t exist.”
