New Love

I’m in love! When I first layed eyes on him about two weeks ago, it felt like time stood still and the only thing that mattered was this moment and him and me. I was walking with a friend and had to stop mid-sentence – my head was blank in awe. It was a perfect moment!

He’s quite a bit older, tall and perfect! I wanted to see him the next day, but my schedule didn’t allow it until yesterday. That wasn’t easy! I waited to mention that news here until I could show a picture as well. It will never do him justice, but I couldn’t not share the picture with everyone!

So, as you see, I’m in love with a tree :-). He’s a maple-foliated sycamore tree that must be a few hundred years. You would need at least three people to hug him. There is so much I still can learn from that tree and from all the others. My first lesson: patience 😉

beginnings…

Every story has its beginning somewhere. But there is seldom one definite place and time. Since all our lives are intricately interwoven, there are no real beginnings, are there? So this first post of my new blog is also not a real beginning, but a natural result of everything and everyone that came before. A next step. One of my previous ones was to quit my job, uproot my life and take a timeout from society. I moved back home, and tried to find out what I really like to do, what excites me. My life’s purpose. By now, society has caught up with me – much sooner than I’d expected. But I’m still looking, wandering, watching the trees grow, even though they stand still. Like a little child, amazed by every new thing life has to offer. But in a way I feel like that is also part of my purpose…

Now I feel like it’s time for me to start sharing all the experiences I made and the ones yet to come. So join me and enjoy the ride – if you like.
