Wieviel Erde braucht der Mensch?

Vor ein paar Wochen hab ich die gleichnamige Kurzgeschichte von Leo Tolstoi gelesen und seitdem geht mir die Frage, die in diesem Titel steckt, nicht mehr aus dem Sinn. Die Geschichte erzählt von einem Bauern, der zwar ein mühseliges Leben führt, aber eigentlich sein Auskommen hat. Er belauscht heimlich ein Gespräch zwischen seiner Frau und ...

This is not a blog post

I’ve been writing a blog post every week for almost a year and at some point the engine is running out. This week, it’s come to the point where I had absolutely no idea or inspiration about what I could write about in a matter of a few hours. There are a lot of things…

A week in November

Mainly I’ve been working on my reindeer card ready for the season and it was already hump day by the time I looked up. ✨If you’re one of those organised people, this way to the festive cards.✨ Some other things that happened this week: Sent off a bunch of festive cards to the south of…

Ich habe Zeit verschenkt

Meine Zeit ist mir kostbar, ich überlege genau, womit und mit wem ich sie verbringe. Normalerweise sind meine Tage ziemlich durchgeplant, weil ich meistens dermaßen viel um die Ohren habe, dass ich gar nicht umhin komme, genau zu planen wann ich was mache.

The German Elections

I was going to write an ode to public transport, having recently gotten back on the rush hour trains. But today, elections in Germany took place and I am currently watching live streams of the results. I voted in this election, my first time ever actually voting in a German election. I was torn, like…

Back to Work After A ‘Career’ Break

It’s been a little over a year I’ve worked in the traditional sense. The main reason for my break was this and some other things (in German), as well as this blog and my cards. I think it is fair to say that it’s been a bit of an odd journey. Though, it was also…
