'Time, as you like it'
The three fellows who were chatting with the bartender just left and I remain the only guest. The bartender is very quiet. I try exchanging a few courtesy lines but I notice that he is deep in his thoughts. I don't want to break his routine, so I rather roam around the place and take pictures. He is very likely the owner, as well.
The country pubs, especially on the hiker's paths, often have instruments on display that anyone can play. I find a guitar sitting in the corner. I can already see a jolly bunch singing local tunes. This used to happen more often before. I wish this accordion, neatly set up on a wall, could talk. I'd probably hear many stories. Stories of what has been happening in this place for many years. These would be interesting to hear. We also travel so we can hear stories. :)
I can hardly remember dismounting my bike and walking in a place where I've found people singing a song. The Internet took its toll on human interactions all over the world. Times are definitely changing. But, the coffee is really good in this empty gem of a place. Maybe a little barrel above the door awaits someone to open it and to start singing? :-)
The vases on a drape holder. Cannot tell if they kept them up there traditionally or it is only set like this for decoration purposes. Maybe it was a necessity when cupboards were full, back in the day. I like the little clock up there. It was carefully inserted, appearing as if trying to cautiously tell its own story of endless counting of minutes.
Time, a dear ally or a strong adversary. However you want to perceive it, its passing is still an inevitable fact. To some people, it slowly takes all they have, to others it brings boons they've never expected. The point might be not expecting too much. As soon as one stops expecting others to behave according to one's expectations, one's half solved the life's riddle. Time is just a row of numbers. Just like the age. You should never let a number dictate your feelings or self-image or any expectations for that matter. Each of us must learn how to let the time pass and gracefully accept its gifts of wisdom and balance. Untouched by opinions or general vibe.
Just like this place does.
