Buxtehude, an orderly collection of 'bricks and mortar',
straggled and stacked,
between the shores of 'the Este',
...a river, the size of the drain-water, from my bath-tub.

Buxtehude, far enough, in the north of Europe;
to evade summer's misquitos.
,.south enough, to avoid September-winters.
,..east enough, to slip the 'green-grass-tourist' of Amsterdam.
,...west enough, to side-step St. Pauli soccer-fans.

Buxtehude: 40,000 strong,..
enough space and 'potential',
....our 'theater', for the past week.

Hanging out, on the streets, as 'Performers',
folks get to know right away:
"..not from HERE,.....but öK.".
In other words: "INTERESTING!"

By the third day, we're hearing more storys,
then telling(!).
...and, we're seeing around a few corners,
we missed,
the first two days.

Buxtehude.
1540 to 1630,...no place to show up with your Cups & Balls(!).
21 'Zauberer',..put on trial(!).
19......burned.

In all honesty,
they weren't "Gazzo's producing Melons".
They were all,...WOMEN(!),..
trying to heal horses, cows,
...their husband's or children's wounds, ills, and sickness.

The cool thing about Buxtehude:
they've put up big brass plates,
on the City Hall(!),
listing the names, of the Ladys.
,..giving their dates of birth,
...and dates of demise.

AND, the City of Buxtehude,
apoligizes(!),..
and asks 'forgiveness'(!..!).

Cool.

Cool enough, for me,..
to write about it,
..and pass it along.

If nothing else,
simply read the Lady's names,
..aloud,
one at a time.
Beautifull names,..
and,
..for a moment,
in the flames and smoke of time,..
they are remembered.
Honoured.
'Zauberei',
...Magic.
