I am leaving Hannover to a remote place without internet connection aka my parents house. I am actually proud of myself, I actually managed to get all my presents together a week early - though christmas shouldn't be about the commercial thing only. Yet, I like that this is a point where I have the feeling of giving something back. Don't know how it is about you, but with all this talk about the changing concept of family in western culture and post-modernist influences into our daily life, I still believe christmas is a wonderful tradition of coming together. I always use it as a time of reflection and of coming together with my family.
And what a year it has been. I do not know what it was to you, but I had personally and polically an intense year... I did not blog a lot, but I have been reading this blog on a daily basis and I just want to thank you for the inspiration this community can spark on its good moments.
Some blogs are only an echo-chamber, this here is more like the original sound. With this, I wish you - whatever you may believe in, a merry christmas and as we say in German: "einen guten Rutsch ins neue Jahr".
All the best.
