imagine

Just picture this:

arcade
old walls in even older cities

pink birds
old ornaments meeting pink spraypaint

good stuff
civil protest “light”: townsfolk in Graz protesting against altering the river by putting up candles normally used at graves on the river banks

defeat
built-in memories of beating the Byzantines down a hill

kuk mozart
Mozart, related to a little Styrian born in Äthiopia by a Hungarian teacher

wineyard
sundrenched vineyards in the south-east

aristocrats
true – blue aristocrats: Erzherzog Johann, a colourful person still fondly remembered in Styria

wondering saints
ever present saints, in this case looking a little puzzeled at the murder-scene in his arms

alps
snowy mountains everywhere

hjp
