A Day Of Rest

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 31, 2014 in Personal |

Was that it? Is May already over? It feels as if the month has only just begun and here we are already, the last day before a new month. I am sometimes amazed at how quickly time seems to fly past me, although I shouldn’t be since my time is always filled with events, with […]

Wuppertal: The View Improves

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 30, 2014 in Personal |

Day Two: the weather has improved. Not, I think, that it could have been any worse than it was, but the sunshine on my second day in Wuppertal brought many improvements to my mood and to my chances of seeing something interesting without having to avoid getting soaked! Today was to be the day, I […]

Wuppertal: Taking The Weather With Me

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 29, 2014 in Personal |

I would love to be able to tell you all manner of good things about my early weekend traveling, but I am not sure that this will work out since, sadly, things didn’t quite go the way that I had hoped. Such is life when you make spontaneous plans, you take a chance on everything […]

Yet Another Long Weekend

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 28, 2014 in Personal |

What to do on a long weekend – which started for me yesterday! – when the weather is appalling and everyone in the area is more interested in spending time wandering through the countryside celebrating with rather too much alcohol? It’s Fathers’ day in Germany – whether it is all over the country or not […]

Sunning In The Nude

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 27, 2014 in Personal |

If you go off the beaten track, force your way through overgrown pathways and are not afraid of the occasional insect landing on your skin, there are places to be found which bring more than at first appears available. A whisper to the good, a mention of a hidden place, and the will to seek […]

Toast Falls Buttered Side Down

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 26, 2014 in News & Opinion |

Bakeries seem to be having a hard time of it lately, especially in the larger cities but, more noticeably, in smaller towns and villages where the local baker tries to sell his wares against mounting competition. There was a time when every housewife baked for her family, when everyone knew that the bread was fresh […]

Finding The Right Party: The Big X

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 25, 2014 in News & Opinion |

Would you vote for a political party whose campaign includes a poster against standardizing women’s breast sizes? How about one which is determined to return to exclusive Christian principles, or Feminist Rights, Neo-Nazi or de-unification of the State? The German elections for new representatives in Europe have all these, and more. There is no two-party […]

Topless In The Sun

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 24, 2014 in Personal |

Summer is here even if, judging by the clouds I saw on the horizon late this afternoon, it is being over-shadowed by some fairly severe weather which, as I write this, has settled over us like a dark mantle pierced by occasional light and toned with rolling thunder. We had hoped to be able to […]

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 23, 2014 in Articles and Reviews |

Thea Bennet is twenty-eight, independent, worldly-wise and hoping that the sixty-eighth apartment in her search for a new home is going to be the one. When Tom opens the door and shows her into a dream apartment all her disappointments disappear and she is confronted not only with the chance of a new, spacious apartment, […]

Jeans: To Wash Or To Smell?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 22, 2014 in Immoral Conversations, Personal |

The first impression anyone who reads the advice given out by Chip Bergh – and others before him – not to wash your jeans seems like an ideal statement to make anyone grimace in disgust. The idea of wearing the same pair of jeans, without them having seen a washing machine, goes against our ideas […]
