Take a seat and feel at home

Chairs are about status

I’m not sure I always feel like I’m in the seat. Sometimes I’m only holding on by one hand and flying out behind the roller coaster. I don’t know anybody who doesn’t feel that way. – David Morse

Taking a quiet walk

“I`m not good at future planning. I don`t plan at all. I don`t know what I`m doing tomorrow. I don`t have a day planner and I don`t have a diary. I completely live in the now, not in the past, not in the future.” – Heath Ledger

Anthropogenic heathlands are maintained artificially by a combination of grazing and periodic burning, or mowing; if not so maintained, they are rapidly re-colonised by forest or woodland.

Have your juicy cake in sommertime Wendland – embed a tweet

It’s just a little demonstration how to embed a tweet into your website. Can be very helpful to get more followers on Twitter and can push your website a bit. And it’s kind of fun, I would say.

You can see how it’s done in this YouTube video, is in German, but you get the point just by watching the proceeding: http://youtu.be/raU5KH8X3w0

“The miracles of nature do not seem miracles because they are so common. If no one had ever seen a flower, even a dandelion would be the most startling event in the world.” – Henry Ward Beecher

One of the most satisfying experiences I know is fully to appreciate an individual in the same way I appreciate a sunset. When I look at a sunset…I don’t find myself saying, ‘Soften the orange a little more on the right hand corner, and put a bit more purple along the base, and use a little more pink in the cloud color…’ I don’t try to control a sunset. I watch it with awe as it unfolds.- Carl R. Rogers

Go to the forest to stay healthy

meet the wise green friends

“Every day spend at least an hour in a forest to stay healthy, and much more than this, to stay sane in this insane world!” ― Mehmet Murat ildan

Weather change ahead – dizzy moon

“Aunt Elizabeth said, ‘Do you expect to attend many balls, if I may ask?’ and I said, ‘Yes, when I am rich and famous.’ and Aunt Elizabeth said, ‘Yes, when the moon is made of green cheese.” ― L.M. Montgomery

Beaming pines in low afternoon sunlight

Light within

People are like stained-glass windows.  They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within.  ~Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

When I get lonely….

when i get lonely

own unfulfilled yearnings?

“When I get lonely these days, I think: So BE lonely, Liz. Learn your way around loneliness. Make a map of it. Sit with it, for once in your life. Welcome to the human experience. But never again use another person’s body or emotions as a scratching post for your own unfulfilled yearnings.”

― Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

The snow loves the trees and fields

the snow loves the trees and fields

…..till the summer comes again…

“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.” 
 Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

See you on the road, Nightrider

Over the limit

Taking a late walk on a snowy evening

When I left for the walk, the weather was, as usual in these days, gray and snowy today and not only rainy for a change. The light is returning slowly after solstice and I’m glad I have a little more time before complete darkness sets in. The time before darkness has this special mood I like. You somehow come closer to yourself.

At the Hitzacker Christmas Market

Selling handmade soaps and keeping the resistance against nuclear power up

The cozy mood at the Hitzacker Christmas Market is always a joy to experience for me. Whereas most other markets have surrendered to full blown consumerism and pushing Xmas-Kitsch over the counter, the half day event on the Hitzacker Island has kept the character of a meeting of the village people and of surrounding whereabouts.

It’s more about having a chat in the open with friends and enjoying a Bratwurst or a Glühwein – a hot wine peppered with cinnamon and schnapps – than to do much purchases. You guessed it: Things are getting merry pretty soon – sort of a warm highlight in dark winter times, but everything stays easy.
