Where others have walked before ...


... is where I have to find my path

Don't you care for my love? she said bitterly.
I handed her the mirror, and said:
Please address these questions to the proper person!
Please make all requests to head-quarters!
In all matters of emotional importance
please approach the supreme authority direct! --
So I handed her the mirror.

D. H. Lawrence


Don't you care for my love I say - or must I also use that mirror I keep handing to you?
The reflections are not enough, reflecting is not enough.
Reflections about love, religion, states, governments, environment ... are not enough!
On an other blog I read (don't know which blog, it might have been Granny's) that life presently in the US is like the life of a Salami. Gradually thin slices decrease the size of the sausage, gradually thin slices of liberties are being eaten up. Nobody notices, nobody cares to keep track ... until it is too late.
Don't we have a "mirror", an image in the transition from the Weimar Republic to Hitler's Reich? Do we dare to look? Does history learn us nothing?
What are we going to do - who will save "our sausage"?
There is a German saying: "Es geht um die Wurst"!
(... it is high time for change)

PEACE, yours - Salami

Zee I am loving the quote "we live ina world where the mute button rules". Exactly, why give so much importance to another mortal? Why when there is another day to be alive?

But as for the Fall weather Zee - really I would rather not walk it. I would rather it remain Spring and Summer all year. Could you conjure up some magic weather for me Zee/

Hey Zee - how are ya? haben sie ein baum? (I could not think of another German noun off-hand but I knew it would make you smile :-) )

Zee ya!
