River

etching, 2012, paper: 38 x 56 cm, plate: 19.5 x 39.5 cm

"The water changed to vapour and rose, became rain and came down again, became spring, brook and river, changed anew, flowed anew. But the yearning voice had altered. It still echoed sorrowfully, searchingly but other voices accompanied it, voices of pleasure and sorrow, good and evil voices, laughing and lamenting voices, hundreds of voices, thousands of voices ... They all belonged to each other: the lament of those who yearn, the laughter of the wise, the cry of indignation and the groan of the dying. They were all interwoven and interlocked, entwined in a thousand ways."
(Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse)

Awesome! I don't live there anymore, but I'm only 2 hours away in PA and my parents still live there. Give me more details later on and I can probably plan a trip there at the same time.
