"Sometimes as I stroll down the brilliant, crowded, sometime gaudy streets of Internetcity , I turn into a side street... quiet, almost deserted. I hear from a widow above me a distant voice...
or a scrap of music...
or I pass a boarded- up theater ....torn posters flapping in the wind ....if I listen closely I can almost hear the fabulous echo of a long gone era within.
Sometimes I see the flickering of some old movie images projected on a crumbling wall...
... and so, sunk in the wonders and mysteries of the past, I look and listen and think how time and art can fold in on themselves. For more I further direct your attention to an interesting article about the legendary Anna Pavlova with some more evocative video clips. Journey on!" - Dr von Lyric
