Streets of Cologne

by

We passed through Cologne, Germany.

We met Sensei Frank DeWalle.

He told us that the Cathedral of Cologne is a cathedral of lovers.  People pray there to find romance.  He visited, and so did his girlfriend, before they met.

 

 

After the cathedral, I walked around town.

 

I didn’t find a lover.

I feel that I’m not alone.

I believe there are others out there who want to Head for Peace.

Heard on the street:

  • The first European street retreat took place in Cologne. ¬†They walked from here to Dusseldorf. ¬†That retreat led to the creation of a Paris soup kitchen.
  • These days, the Formerly Tough Zen Guy needs his rest
