Lead Role in a Cage / Germany, January 2010

A small detail from my current life

Did they get you to trade
Your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
And cool comfort for change?
Did you exchange
A walk on part in the war,
For a lead role in a cage?

It has been a while since my last posting, hasn't it?
Well, I just didn't feel like posting recently.
Let's see whether this will change a bit in the future - ready to go for my fourth year of blogging.

If I roll back one year from today, January 13th 2010, I found myself in India close to the border to Pakistan in a small city called Jaisalmer. Wow, my current life is lightyears away from those Jaisalmer days.

A scene from my life exactly one year ago in Jaisalmer


  1. No use thinking about this, because the past is past and the present is a gift. Why waste thoughts on what is past?

  2. ...because the past is part of us and so are our thoughts, feelings, souvenir and moments we experience

  3. und da geht was du weißt
    und hier kommt was du ahnst
    und das wie es wirklich ist
    gegen dort wo du mal warst
    [aus: kettcar, anders als gedacht]

    auch passend: Boden, den Rücken zur Wand
    Den Blick zur Tür, zwei Steine in jeder Hand

    Setzt deine Träume aus an trostlosen Orten

    [helden, gib mir das]

  4. Well, if we go back in time even further in january 2008 you were thinking you should listen more to your wilder side, so I am glad you did and made a beautiful trip around the world. Good to see you are posting again

  5. January 2008 is past, and the past is unimportant. Who gives a heck about the people and time of january 2008?
