Where to find symmetry

I went out full of enthusiasm, and returnd speechless. Modern art loves antisymmetry, nature is full of symmetric disorder and windows in a row kept on having different types of curtains! Why does everyone need to be so individual 😀
So it was quite a challenge to find good patterns, good shadows, good backgrounds (if any). Since I am normally a big fan of making small things big and look into details, I tried to get a look on bigger things like buildings and landscapes this time. The first one is a church roof of a modern church, second picture is the shaft tower of an old coal mine, the third picture shows the mounting of a swing set and the last two are pictures of a parc during summer. (Those old parks are made for pictures of symmetry).




Would I be me?

If I could turn back time, I would not feed this terrifying pet. After this tiny ball of fur bit me, my favorite socks got soaked with blood (it’s unbelievable how much blood such a little finger can hold – or not hold) I will never touch a hamster again. That is a big sacrifice – to never touch an animal whose brown eyes are the most touching ones after a fawn.

If I could turn back time, I would love to sit back in my beanbag chair, reading the most exciting book in the world with a sweet big lollipop that will make my tongue bleed – again.

If I could turn back time, I would jump back to my sweet 17 and tell this girl: Move on! Do exactly what you do now, because your life is gonna be great!

nine eleven

“Your Days are Numbered.”

Do I have to say more? Actually yes.
What a coincidence to pick that quote on a date like that.
For a world where there’s only one thing popping up in someones head when hearing those numbers, we talking about the ninth of November not the 11th of September.

For Germany that date is more important than any other. Even the Ministry of Culture called for a yearly project day on that particular day to enforce the debate and examination of German history and educate the importance of democracy.

Nine Eleven is a magical date showing the cruelty of the human race. The power of Revolution and the undeniable fact that people are marionettes of economy and politics.
Beginning with the year 1948, where the execution of a guy under parliamentary privilege was the beginning of the end of the German Revolution. Followed by being the Proclamation Day at 1918. And when 1923 the Munich Putsch went off unsuccessfully, the Pogrom Night of 1938 fooled every effort that was made in the name of humanity.
But at least the last nine eleven event, taken place in 1989, paid tribute to the Good. With the opening of the Berlin Wall Germany opened up to it’s own people.

Despite all those historic events that took place on that particular date, there is another more personal one: The birthday of a very good old friend of mine! And I am glad to say that his day’s aren’t numbered yet, and there are lot more joyful ones to come!
Happy Birthday!

LIEBSTER AWARD – Challenge accepted

Even though I am not a big fan of chain-lettres, this one is still doing good, as it encourages me to check out for loads of blogs 😉 And it will hopefully push a bit, the Follower Rate of some nice ones. So here we go, drimhaus (Thanks for your nomination) – Challenge accepted!


What do you enjoy most about blogging/writing

That stuff, that crumbles up in my head, makes actually sence after I put in on paper. That is awesome!

What is the story behind your blog name?

After “investing” in an art project of a friend ,she told me, I will need a name, so she can put me on the Investor – List. Rage el Rock was created, cause I can go on and on and on… and on when I get into a fuss.

When and why did you start blogging?

I started blogging after when I started working offshore, in order to keep my family and friends up to date. I mean, who really know’s what’s going on a boat!

Do you ever get “writer’s block,” and, if so, how do you deal with it?

So far, luckily not longer than a day. So far it’s just been – I am not in the mood to put anything down today. But all the stuff I pick up on the blogging/writing University, leaves me with a lot of ideas how to overcome a “block” should it appear.

What is the best feedback you have ever gotten on a blog post?

For me there is no best or worst, I like feedback that helps me to enhance my blog, the quality of writing whatsoever. But I do like positive comments, about the characters, thoughts to pictures etc. as well.

What Motivates You to Keep Blogging?

So far, it’s the people reading  me. As long as I know there is one person out there that is reading me, I will continue. It’s different with real writing. I need to do that, to keep my head free.

What is your biggest regret?

There is none. I did good, I did bad. Everything brought me further. Everything is good for learning a lesson. If I don’t do a mistake today, I will do it tomorrow. To be fair, I have a memory like a sieve… maybe, I already forgot about it.

What is your greatest joy in life?

Moments when I can unwind. No matter if its sport, dancing, laughing with friends, anything that’s close to ecstasies (but not in a bad way) will heal me 🙂

Who is your biggest inspiration, and why?

There is no biggest, and there is not only one. People and characters that inspire me are changing every now and then. Maybe it is because I am not settled yet, and I still want to be everything at once. May it be an adventurer, a little girl from childhood books, my grandma or the greengrocer, whose eyes radiate joy and inner peace.

What goals would you like to accomplish in the next 5 to 10 years?

I wanna be a mom 🙂

Little Souvenir

Nobody intends to put up a wall
(Walter Ulbricht, Leader of the GDR, June 15 1961 – 2 months before the Berlin Wall was built)

And this his how life goes.
The wall was built, the country divided, the world got a cold and after staying in bed and curing their illness, not willing to take chances the wall was teared down.
Happy People. Happy Germany. Happy Europe. (Maybe)
And then one day the astronaut Chris Hadfield shot this amazing picture over Berlin.

The yellow east part with sodium light bulbs vs the fluorescent west side. The warm cozy community vs technology and progress.
The statement of the furniture department simply was: we haven’t had the money to equalise everything.
Can’t some things just remain different? Aren’t those sweet reminders of our history? Non violent, non predominant but calm and peaceful souvenirs, only noticeable from space.
