New "nows" all the time...

...and I try to be open for what is right now,
and not for what might show up, or for staying in the past.
I fantasize of what will hopefully be, 
knocking on the door by sea and shore,
to smell and listen to what the moment offers,
catching contact with life itself.

Walking the streets...

...being born a city boy, 
having coffee in the park with a close friend,
strolling the streets in color and light with other dwellers,
and lunch at local taverna. 
Most people come here to do their business
and are leaving sooner than later, 
totally missing the play.

Seeking clarity of mind...

... comes often up in me.
Waiting for the moment of seeing what is really going on inside,
forcing the confusion of fog to disperse is always in vain. 
Accepting not knowing in a given moment, is a road to awareness.

Poetic in itself... Nature in Winter. One of many languages.
It takes a while to see all colors. Have to stop, listen to within to see what is outside.
Humility is a word that comes to my mind.

Saturday Night Football...

...excitement is unbearable, the Olympic Stadium of the village is boiling,
evaluations of referees and opponents are many,
they are stark and biting, naked and without mercy.
As heavy as the indirect smoking, never mind we are outdoors.
It is a thriller and I feel the waves of adrenalin...

When time holds its breath...

...and that strikes me sometimes as possible,
even if only in my imaginary world.
Like a wall with no clock and no ticking of time.

My very quiet neighbor Petra...

....on this day of the beginning of the year, holding it´s breath.
It is a bit gray, but pleasant for a walk 
and the light is tempting and challenging,
a painting with many dimensions...
