BG 209 – Wake up

Take a moment to consider
what is important to you
what gives meaning to your life.

Attention and likes
on social media
or rather real contact,
friendship, wonder.

Indulge in more and more
consumption or rather
be content with what you have
and take better care of your environment
before it’s too late.

What have you done today
to make the world
a little more beautiful?
WAKE UP in
twenty twenty-four!

BG 158 – The new year

I am already getting used to the new year. I no longer accidentally think I’m still living in 2022. I put last year’s mess in the trash and kept the nice things. I have thrown away worthless stuff and stored what I can reuse in my warehouse full of possibilities. I cherish the positive and leave the negative behind (but first I learn lessons from it). Just like unimaginably large galaxies and microscopic small atoms I keep moving, as a small part of the immensely large and sometimes intimately small whole, as long as I still have some time, strength and energy left. Despite progressive wear and tear, I hope I will be allowed to experience some more new years. Together with the expansive, overwhelmingly beautiful, mysterious, unique, and sometimes oppressively heavy world around me and within me – I kick against, sink my teeth into, invent, create, wrap my arms around, and gently love the year 2023.

BG 104 – For the New Year I wish you:

– a good health
– nice contact with other people
– pleasant experiences
– good luck working on your goals
– enjoy your activities
– a lot of relaxation
– solutions to the climate problem
– recovery of nature
– more positive than negative moments

And above all I wish you:
– the insight that you yourself can contribute to these things.

That we will be able to breathe relieved
again soon, without a mouth mask

and we no longer have to move in
circles around each other,

that we can work together again,
can live together, enjoy,

that you can see our smile again
and feel our arm around your shoulders.

Have a fantastic new year!
