Finding out about myself

with 2 comments

A life long quest for beauty, knowledge and wisdom. A quest for joy and a quest for happiness, yielding so many moments of bliss, of joy, such wisdom and rare beauty. And then among all those riches acquired through a life abounding in beauty joy wisdom and power, find out that’s all of them lost. They enriched the one living this life to such a degree that he was not able anymore to share those riches

While king Midas was doomed as even his food turned into gold under his touch, the opposite of happened to gold ready to turn into nourish and ready to touch someone. They were lost simply because there was no one to be touched by them.

Christmas rose

leave a comment »

Christmas rose or hellebore, belongs to the buttercup family, and during the Siege of Kirrha in 585 BC, hellebore was reportedly used by the Greek besiegers unchristianly to poison the city’s water supply. The defenders were subsequently so weakened by diarrhea that they were unable to defend the city from assault. Hellebore derives from hellein – kill and bora – food. Romans had helleborosus – someone on a helleborus diet, mad that is.

happy advent season….

es gibt zeiten, in denen jede zukunft unmöglich scheint, der horizont zusammen gebrochen und kein himmel mehr, nachdem er wie asche über der gegenwart niedergegangen ist. und diese zeit ist eine davon.
