About Me


Take it easy


"Menschen, die ihr Leben mögen, sind in der Lage, dieses Leben als gelungene Erzählung zu interpretieren: als in sich logische Abfolge von Ereignissen: Sich selbst verstehen als die Hauptperson, auf die alles zuläuft und die stets die Fäden in der Hand hält. Eins baut aufs andere auf. Sackgassen und Umwege? Erweisen sich als Rastplätze oder Abkürzungen. Zufälle gibt es selten, und wenn, dann als glückliche Fügung. Das ist eine gesunde Einstellung." (Brandeins 12/2012) I am too complex to understand myself. I was born and raised in the outback of Bavaria. I traveled a lot. I am self-employed. I try to live consciously. I know that I do not know anything. I get knocked down, but I getup again, you will never gonna keep me down!


That you do not want that other people do to you, do not to them.
It is what it is. It comes as it comes.
I do know that I do not know anything.
In the long run we are all dead.
In Sha´Allah
