doubt many members will know that
modern-day situation there also makes it difficult to get an idea of
quarter. I have always felt that the more intimate but small street of
Terarcken gives a better feel of the old area. For years now I dreamed
putting up a plaque there, and pay a personal homage to the place. That
May made this dream a reality. In our own adventurous and unforgettable
Elle and I managed to fix this plaque to the far-end wall of the
burning incense and a few lucky prayers and best wishes completed the
inauguration ceremony. It was a very special moment. This mission was a
risky undertaking, but
knowing it was for the good
Brontë cause, we defied all with spirited hearts and minds and
just went ahead
with our plan. And it succeeded.
I hope our prayers have helped and the plaque is still there.
In case you’re curious and if you are passing the old Ravenstein house when next in Brussels, take the steps which go down to the Rue Terarcken and walk up to the dead-end of the street. If it’s still there, you will be able to see the plaque.
