 Cornstalks

I am drawing on a backlog of older photos these days, as I am not doing much besides working at work or working at home. I just finished working in the edits (and re-writing what needed re-writing) for a paper that I’ve got to send back tomorrow (a finally read-through shall commence tomorrow after my first class), and shall soon have dinner, before then hieing myself back to my theory chapter.

The photos work again, and the dark four months of the year shall now commence, what with the clocks having gone back this weekend. I don’t like winter time. I wish we could always stay on summer time. Brighter evenings are much more important to me than earlier mornings – waiting for the sun to rise is much more cheering than watching it set at 4pm and knowing it will be dark for the rest of the day. *sigh*

Once upon a Thursday in September

So, here’s part one of a slightly late travelogue from three weeks ago (I initially typed a light travelogue, and while that is not quite what I wanted to say, it woll most likely be true, as well. Light on text, heavy on image.) So, three weeks and a day ago I took my car and started my leisurely journey towards Kirchen and Filkcontinental, the plan for which was to take small country roads instead of the major highways.  I like driving when I am somewhere else on holiday, but I don’t like doing it when its just getting-straight-from-a-to-b-on-a-major-highways (boooring), and since I had enough holiday days for 2011 left over (having not gone anywhere this summer), I just took an additional one off and left on Thursday.

On the way down I stopped in Hamburg for a while, to attend a recording of the TV show Topfgeldjäger, of which I can only show you a picture of my entry ticket, as photographing is not allowed at all. (It’s [maybe exclusively, but certainly partially] due to the fact that that would spoil the whole ‘live broadcast’ illusion they have going.]) If I were them, I’d use the staff photographer they have on hand anyway to offer taking pictures of the attendees with the people on the show, and then emailing them to the attendees on the day after the broadcast. Or even to print them out, have them signed by the stars, and them mail them to people. Both for a small (or not so small, for option b) fee, of course. But no-one asked me, so that potential goldmine of money shall remain unexplored – and a photo of but the ticket for you there shall remain here.

Lots of prettier things to show, at any rate, and a photo was never central to my attendance there, so fair enough. (I went to see how the camera works that they use to zoom into cooking pots and pans and ovens with, and learned its secrets I have, so all is good. Also, fun times.) But I digress.

Since the day was getting on a bit by then I took the highway until close to Bremen and then opted for the ‘scenic route’ option in the navigation system, which took me down small country roads, ever southwards. I caught the sun setting over the Dümmer See and then spent my night in Osnabrück, and then heading off to Bad Iburg early the next morning, to look around there, before driving through the Hochsauerland to Kirchen. (Which will be in the Friday part of this travel report).

Adieu, slow journeys

pic 373

Never again will we hear stamping on the road
The lively foot of a horse on the burning cobbles;
Adieu, slow journeys, distant noises that one hears,
The laughter of the passersby, the slow turning of the wheel,
The unexpected bend on varying slopes,
A friend met, the hours forgotten,
The hope of arriving late in the wild place.

Distance and time are defeated. Science
Traces around the earth a sad and straight road.
The world is reduced by our experience
And the equator is only too narrow a ring.
Chance is no longer. Everyone will slip along his line
Immobile in the single place which departure allots him,
Immersed in a silent and cold calculation.
