Finally decided to get out a bit as lockdowns are significantly lifting. We wanted to see the mountains again with all other things here being generally insanely busy at the moment. I set off with my son for a day or two near the mountains, we had a great trip down via Lake Constance with beautiful weather. Unfortunately, as we were just deciding where to park we were reversed into. The Tiger had a whole rear end of a car balanced on its front wheel then was twisted forcefully over to the right and there it lay, leaking petrol.
I would now like to continue with the theme and look at the book “The Lost Art of Healing” by Bernard Lown, MD, a Nobel prize winning cardiologist.
This is a small collection of interesting links to art created by Andy Goldsworthy. I am a great admirer of his work, his patience, his detail and apparent love of nature.

I have been reading a very insightful short paper in German by Wilfried Belschner about the concepts of health and disease/sickness. I shall try to précis the paper from the original German and find links to illustrate the idea. Translations are mine and the condensation of the original German text is done from my perspective, the appendages and comments to the text are also mine.
I´ve been musing about a few experiences in the past before I started writing this blog and how they influenced me. I shall try to piece the story and the thoughts together.
“The future starts now”, “today is the first day…” and “every new day starts in the dark”. I was looking around for a picture for …
We´re currently on the back side of what might be termed the second wave in central Europe. The numbers are slowly going down but I have an uneasy feeling when looking at data concerning the proportion of mutated forms of the corona virus. These are now detectable in data, for example, from the southwest federal state of Baden-Württemberg in Germany and seem to be growing exponentially „under the cover“ of total current numbers.
