Blog post #12: Is to dare to care?

In blog post #9 I recommended Ken Robinson´s TEDtalk. Not only because what he says is worth listening to but also how he says it. Same goes for Brené Brown in talking about the power of vulnerability in a, to me, entertaining way. To me, what they have in common, is their elaboration on human… Blog post #12: Is to dare to care? weiterlesen

Blog post #4: The attitude of trees

Last week I went running again. Completely in my thoughts, what happened – I fell. My T-shirt torn at my left shoulder. I did not continue running. Everything came over me in that moment. I thought maybe that was a sign, indicating to slow down again. I cannot remember when I was sitting, simply sitting… Blog post #4: The attitude of trees weiterlesen
