Photography: All My Own Work

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 25, 2014 in Personal |

It’s been quite a while since I published any of my own photographs here, although I must admit that I haven’t been out and about with a camera recently and these are all taken with my smart phone. It’s amazing what you can find when just wandering about with a few hours to spare, waiting […]

Blank Pages, Titles, Writing And Grammar

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 16, 2014 in Personal |

I read recently on Twitter an entry by a female novelist about how she begins writing, how she overcomes the fear of a blank page. She says that, rather than planning how to start, she simply sits down and writes whatever comes into her mind for the first ten minutes. This removes the fearsome blank […]

The Happy Meal Original

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 15, 2014 in Personal |

I’m surprised that no one else appears to have found this, and yet it is so obvious! Despite all the discussions on the Internet, no one has managed to trace back the origins of the (apparently much hated) new Happy Meals logo on McDonald’s food packaging. Well, I am here to help everyone along and […]

Go Fly A Kite

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 14, 2014 in Personal |

If it wasn’t so cloudy and dull this weekend, I might have been convinced that going out and flying a kite would have been the perfect pastime. There is, about twenty-five kilometers away from here, a small village called Clues (pronounced Clueys) where groups of people meet up regularly to enjoy the weather and let […]

A Rush For The Exit

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 9, 2014 in Personal |

Soaring temperatures, sunny weather and a long weekend. Exactly the right time to be out and enjoying some of the leisure activities a town or city has to offer. Here in Germany such activities take certain, almost pre-destined forms throughout the summer: barbecue, the beach, the swimming pool. Here we are lucky enough to have […]

Yet Another Holiday

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 5, 2014 in Personal |

Hardly enough time to get back into college work and another long weekend rears its head! This time we have Whitsun, most schools finish early on Friday and come back then on Wednesday and, by the looks of things, it’s going to be a bright and sunny few days. Time to roll out the sunbathing […]

If You’re Not For Us….

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 2, 2014 in Immoral Conversations, Personal |

I don’t receive many mails of interest, mostly spam which hits the trash real fast, but when I do it is clear that whoever has sent the message has given some thought to what they wish to write, to their position, to their opinion. Mostly, but not always. And I certainly don’t publish such mails […]

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 […]
