Contemplation, searching for my soul
Silence encompassing all
Alone but not in solitude
Silence giving fortitude

On the dike at Westermarkelsdorf. Love those walks on the hazy coast, and of course the evenings thereafter at the chimney fire with my sweethearts and some good black tea with rock sugar.
Back from a week on the coast. It was a pleasure to celebrate the christmas days there, again. Though the weather was very rough with rain and storm this year, we’ve had a wonderful time.
I’ll wish you all the best for the upcoming year. May all your dreams and wishes come true!

Just arrived back home from a nice week at the coast. It was big fun as always: very good food, long walks on empty beaches and all aspects of weather conditions. From horizontal rain, storm at 8 beaufort to blue skies and vice versa, all in just 20 minutes ;-).
Some beach grass impressions.
“I have always loved the beach. The smell of the salty water, the wind in my face, the gentle roar of the waves all combine to create a sense of peace and calm.” – Unknown
Lands End on the western shore of Fehmarn. Unpeopled and with good weather conditions, this is a great, elemental place. Every time I visit this shore, it has changed. Trees are displanted by the elements of nature, or they’ve moved several feet away from their previous positions, but still rooted.
We just came back from a week on the coast and I’m already missing it, again. Strange hmm? Maybe it’s because I’m Aquarius, or, more likely, it’s because of the amount of tranquility- and serenity-effects these landscapes and the sea have on me. And the tasty food, and the landmarks, and some unforgettable moments, and…and…and… Unfortunately, these effects didn’t last very long as soon as I’m back and caught in the daily treadmill. However, I remember a quote from Steve Jobs, saying
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
