Legacy? What is a ‚legacy‘?
Nostalgia is a legacy, a legacy of the details; the thread of green on the trees, the sway of the clouds over the tired city, the resting dusty shoes after a long journey, the creaking doors of the destroyed buildings tolling in the cracks of our memory.
A legacy! what is a legacy? Fairouz when she sings, Frans, when he prays and, rejoices; hailing his words upon all visitors: Go forward, move further forward. A legacy is a song of peace/ Salam. Salam to all Syrians upon the earth.
With Frans van der Lugt the frontiers of west and east got collapsed. The legacy is to keep the spirit, to roam the world, detaching our anguished souls, dispatching Salam among other souls.
The legacy is to keep strong, to stare into the horizon, to pierce the darkness within and release the ever-precious life, yes life, deep within.
