From the strange dreams department

Last night I dreamt that André and I went to visit Frauke and Scott in Lüllau. There was snow outside, and I stood in the snow barefoot. And my feet didn’t even get cold…

By the way, Frauke and Scott, I’ve discovered that my cousin and her fiancé live very close to you, in Wörme. I’ve never been there, but saw Wörme on a map recently and found it was only a few kilometres from Lüllau! Die Welt ist ein Dorf…

Gute Besserung!

Get well soon, Al!

Und Du natürlich auch, Jörg!!!

Aktuelle Literaturszene?

Unter dieser Kategorie führt meome Weblogs, wer hätte das gedacht. Jedenfalls gibt es hier eine Liste mit deutschsprachigen Blogs. Der Autor bat darum, den Link weiterzuverbreiten und ggf. Feedback zu senden. Und ich bin spät dran, denn der Schockwellenreiter hatte den Link schon vor ein paar Tagen. Und andere auch.

Das einzige, was mich bei meome stört ist, daß alle Links ein neues Fenster aufgehen lassen, in dem oben ein meome-Frame ist, der quasi als ‘Überschrift’ für die eigentliche Site dient. Aber dank Seans Tip muß das nun auch nicht mehr sein.

In der Liste bin ich auch zum wiederholten Mal auf blackandwhiteandblue gestoßen, eines der wenigen wirklich ‘literarischen’ Weblogs, das aber eher ein Online-Journal ist. Aber egal, schön ist es.


Last weekend, André and I rented two DVDs: Jakob the Liar (1999) and Kundun (1997). Both were really good films.

Jakob the Liar is about a Jewish ghetto in a Polish town in 1944. I still cannot make up my mind if the film is funny or sad.

It’s actually both, and that is why my feelings are so mixed. People are just trying to survive until the Russians come and free them from the German Nazis, and their lives are incredibly hard. Yet, they still try to see the funny side in life, tell jokes etc. And it has both a happy and a sad ending…

Kundun tells the story of Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama. Born in 1935, he was recognized as the reincarnation of the Dalai Lama at age two. He is schooled by monks from the age of four until the Chinese invade Tibet in 1950. Although he tries everything to save the Tibetans and remain with them, he has no choice but to emigrate to India in 1959, where he still lives.

The film follows his life from early childhood to the day he has to leave Tibet.

Some Dalai Lama links:

  • The Government of Tibet in Exile: His Holyness, the Dalai Lama. Biography, books, statements…
  • www.DalaiLama.com: “This Internet site is dedicated to creating awareness of the life and work of His Holiness Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet and has been created under the auspicies of the Office of Tibet and the Tibetan Government-in-Exile.”
  • Salon.com – People: The Dalai Lama.
  • Mother Jones: The Dalai Lama. On China, hatred, and optimism. A conversation with Robert Thurman.
  • The Dalai Lama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989.
  • Another site with lots of information: His Holyness the Dalai Lama of Tibet. (“The material on these pages has been prepared from the official brochures, newsletters and press kit of the Trust for the Visit, with additional material compiled by Ven. Sönam Chökyi, the Trust publicity officer for Dunedin, as well as other sources.”)


Missed another day… by ten minutes.

    Last night I dreamt that André and I went to visit Frauke and Scott in Lüllau.

    I thought I heard something scratching on our door last night. I assumed it was just a cat. I’m glad your feet didn’t get cold, anyway!
