Why and about

Why and about!

What encourages somebody to expose himself, to grab a pen and – write – something how he thinks it happened and in what it resulted? If you have climbed a high mountain, which colloquially in this case means life, you can turn around and look down to img496the meandering paths and ways which have led you to your next to the last destination. In this observant place, someone can check his decisions made and values followed – that unique combination, which makes somebody special. Also, this mixture of heritage, education and social environment – you or me, has acquired an own perspective: How to evaluate and judge this World and its phenomena and outgrowths. I feel that my generation, confronted with the fastest technical progress and social change of mankind has lost many traditional values , such as consideration, compassion, honor ,dignity and bona fide. This dual combination, my life and my perspective on things – that it is what this blog is about! I try, with my limited means to describe circumstances and facts as I see it and hope to find critic, compliance or refusal. The worst thing might happen, would be a high bouncing rate without a comment, indicating that my notes and sensations are wrong and not worthwhile for discussion. No need to explain, why Michael Kohlhaas is one of my greatest heroes!

Lets see what he delivers and how his reign lasts.
