Grey November

Im Nebel

Seltsam, im Nebel zu wandern!
Einsam ist jeder Busch und Stein,
Kein Baum sieht den andern,
Jeder ist allein.

Voll von Freunden war mir die Welt,
Als noch mein Leben licht war;
Nun, da der Nebel fällt,
Ist keiner mehr sichtbar.

Wahrlich, keiner ist weise,
Der nicht das Dunkel kennt,
Das unentrinnbar und leise
Von allen ihn trennt.

Seltsam, Im Nebel zu wandern!
Leben ist Einsamsein.
Kein Mensch kennt den andern,
Jeder ist allein.

For the beginning of the darkest month of the year with the All Saints Day and Day of the Dead I found the perfect place to blog. Entering the Grey November Gallery Shop I received a greeting note card with this wonderful sad poem by Herman Hesse (find the English translation below).

Rodriguez Munro created a beautiful dark and rainy space for his works which I liked a lot with the animated textures. You really should go and see them. The artist about his works: "These gallery is full of pictures that I have taken in my real life neighborhood and edit with photoshop. Thats one of my hobbies. I'm addicted to fog, darkness, crows, nature, trees and autumn/winter. For second life, I made them animated, and placed some layers over them."

In the Mists by H. Hesse

Wondrous to wander through mists!
Parted are bush and stone:
None to the other exists,
Each stands alone.

Many my friends came calling
then, when I lived in the light;
Now that the fogs are falling,
None is in sight.

Truly, only the sages
Fathom the darkness to fall,
Which, as silent as cages,
Separates all.

Strange to walk in the mists!
Life has to solitude grown.
None for the other exists:
Each is alone.
