room by room


"We spend January 1 walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched.  Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives... not looking for flaws, but for potential."

- Ellen Goodman

I say THANK YOU dear friends for all the past years together. I send you my best wishes for the  holidays and for health and happiness throughout the coming year. See you in 2015 again ... 




pas de deux


“In classical pas de deux, the man controls everything. He picks up the girl. He puts her down. He turns her, takes her weight, stops her, and she must always go where he leads. The woman submits to all this completely. But her submission is not feeble. In fact, the only reason she can submit so utterly is because she is very strong in herself. In her center. She does not collapse, or cave, or stutter-step, or flop. No, she holds herself very consciously, very confidently. She is centered within her own weight. So the man always knows where she is. He can feel her. He can absorb her strength.”

― Meg Howrey



Knowing where the roots are


old farmhouse in my homeland, Lower Saxony - North Germany

There are only two lasting bequests we can hope
to give our children. One of these is roots, the other, wings.

Wordless Wednesday - reset


It's not only moving that creates new starting points. 
Sometimes all it takes is a subtle shift
 in perspective, an opening of the mind, 
an intentional pause and reset, or a new route 
to start to see new options and new possibilities.

If you stand still outside you can hear it... Winter’s footsteps, the sound of falling leaves.

Black & White Wednesday - southern lines


Summer in the deep South is not only a season, 
a climate, it's a dimension. 
Floating in it, 
one must be either proud or submerged.
