Merry Christmas

And I am running
Like every day
From here to there
And back

And I am watching
These rays of light
The time hasn’t come
Yet

And I am running
Like every day
From here to there
Smiling

Have a wonderful christmas time everybody!

Opinion: Don’t stop drawing, don’t stop writing!

The assassination of twelve people in Paris because of their journalistic work made me deeply sad. As a writer I believe in an imagination without borders and the right to express your ideas with art. I wouldn’t say that art is not a weapon, art can hurt people, even make them speechless and unable to act. Is their a right to hurt other people’s feelings? I think, yes!

I am and always was a big fan of satire. Sometimes it can hurt very hard, I remember feeling hurt about some caricatures that I saw and articles that I read. Satire is an instrument to shock and provoke. It will bother you. It gives you an opion. It makes you to want to say something. You may be angry, you may be laughing, but you will think about it!

If you kill, people will be hurt as well. But the chance to make people think is gone forever.

The freedom of opinion should be a basic right. My solidarity and respect these days are with all cartoonists, painters, bloggers, journalists, writers around the world who are beeing oppressed. Don’t stop drawing, don’t stop writing!

A Tourist in Austria

Only five days I spent in Austria, having a different New Year’s Eve both calm and happy. I had a great time with wonderful people showing me around and I got to know another part of the austrian culture which is sometimes familiar and then surprisingly different from my North German habits. 🙂 I enjoyed it a lot, sometimes I carried my mobile phone with me and took pictures, this is a kaleidoscope of my view as a short time tourist in Austria.

Places, I’ve visited: Wels, Gmunden, Hallstatt, Melk, Wien, andere.

Nach nur fünf Tagen in Österreich bin ich zurück und habe dieses Silvesterfest einmal anders verbracht, ruhig und friedlich. Ich hatte eine tolle Zeit mit wunderbaren Menschen, die mir alles gezeigt und die österreichische Kultur näher gebracht haben, manchmal war sie ähnlich, dann wieder überraschend anders als meine norddeutschen Gewohnheiten. 🙂 Ich hatte großen Spaß, gelegentlich hatte ich mein Smartphone dabei und habe Fotos gemacht, dies ist ein Kaleidoskop meiner Blicke als Kurzzeittouristin in Österreich.

Orte, die ich besucht habe: Wels, Gmunden, Hallstatt, Melk, Wien, andere.
