Udo Lindenberg at Braunschweig

Christina/ June 22, 2021/ Culture/ 0 comments

To put it in a nutshell: The Udo Lindenberg exhibition in Braunschweig is fun! Udo’s pictures celebrate life, do not take it too seriously and bolster the spectator up to follow the lead. I can just say thank you to both, Udo Lindenberg for turning 75 recently and the Prüsse-Stiftung for dedicating this exhibition to Braunschweig on the occasion of

Christina/ June 21, 2021/ Ideas of philosophy/ 0 comments

I only know the Jojo-Effekt from magazines dealing with diets (fortunately I did not need one so far). At first, they say, the achievements of weight reduction are quick and motivating. But then follows the lean period. The progress in loosing weight slows down noticeably. Whoever does not posses enough power of endurance or does not believe in oneself might

How I learn to love myself – part two

Christina/ June 20, 2021/ Ideas of philosophy/ 0 comments

Today I go into the thick of things and dedicate myself to a particular difficult chapter on the way to love for myself: the inner critic. This awkward condition, that is how I want to call it here, is labelled in psychology as one kind of Ego-State. The persistence of the inner critic can be symbolized by a Donald Trump

Christina/ June 19, 2021/ The daily grind, Culture/ 0 comments

I passed by a thousand times, a thousand times nothing happened. Thousand and one day and it makes Zoom.” Somehow or other I could explain today’s discovery. I have no clue for how many times I really rode through Veltheim (Ohe). But until today I missed the charming treasure of the town: the moated castle of Veltheim. How could that

Christina/ June 18, 2021/ The daily grind/ 0 comments

Corona aka Covid-19 still determins our day-to-day life. Even though I decided some time ago to bow out of the daily coverage on number of cases and incidence rates, but even on my mountainbike I am confronted once more with the virus, like lastly at Veltheim/Ohe. At the passenger bench signs indicate “break”. I am surprised however when I learn

How I learn to love myself – part one

Christina/ June 16, 2021/ Ideas of philosophy/ 0 comments

“The so called inner child” that is the name of a book written by the two psychologists Herbold and Sachsse. The title hints at the problem behind. Whenever a technical term penetrates everyday speech it is in danger to leave the path of a selective definition and is often being defamiliarized or being weakened or is being adapted to the

(Deutsch) Essenrode: Die Botschaft der Rosen

Christina/ June 13, 2021/ The daily grind/ 0 comments

I am always surprised what kind of beautiful ways and sights I discover around Braunschweig when riding my bike. Today I just intended to ride through the Querumer Forst but on my way back I am in for a surprise. It is worth taking some courage and ride cross-country, just to see what is going to happen. Next to the

Book-review: You can’t be more lonely

Christina/ June 12, 2021/ Categories/ 0 comments

The privileges sound tempting: attention, recognition, carpool, flunkies, access to important public persons and the certainty of ever rising allowances for members of parliament. These temptations symbolize the atttractiveness of becoming and remaining a member of parliament. The shady sides? Attacs from the public via social media, by the press and from the own party. Alienation from the family by

Definitely derailed: A refuge in the forest

Christina/ June 8, 2021/ The daily grind

Spring already did it and also summer seems to follow the pattern: the most beautiful seasons of the year let us down. Being out of sync, exhausted by Corona stress and other things, surrounded by drizzling rain and fog a shack saves the day: the refuge close to Hahnenklee. Without any chance of outlooks the hut seems to be like

On the Tosmarkamm: The most beautiful part of the Hildesheimer Wald

Christina/ May 25, 2021/ The daily grind

The forest of Hildesheim meanwhile became know terrain to me by now. More than once I moved closer to it. However, what we discover this Whit Monday is something special. One the one hand it is the perfect weather. On the other hand it is the beautiful nature around Wesseln with its faszinating fauna and an almost perfect forest. The
