Exploring: Off The Beaten Track

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 20, 2014 in Personal |

Some people don’t understand it when I make plain that I want to go down a side street, leave the main road and follow a track, get away from the bright lights of the tourist areas, tourist attractions and see something else. The shops, the bars, museums and galleries, they are what life is all […]

Sharing: In Sickness And In Health

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

I just love the generosity of other people, especially when they have something to share that you don’t really want, but have no way of refusing. By this I don’t mean that third toaster at a wedding, or the reindeer pullover Aunt Maud knitted for your twentieth birthday which fits one arm but not the […]

Art: In The Eye Of The Beholder

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 12, 2014 in Personal |

What is it that constitutes art? I have seen so many different installations, paintings, models and sundry other things which are harder to classify recently and where, in some cases, I wasn’t sure whether the work was actually a work of art, or simply something thrown together which the public should accept as art. How […]

It Seems Like An Age Ago

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 11, 2014 in Personal |

There are times when I don’t recognize my own writing. I don’t mean my handwriting, although that can be hard enough at times, but those things I wrote here, or as a short story, several years ago. Sometimes my writing style, the words I use, the ideas behind a blog post, behind a story or […]

As The Weekend Approaches

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

As the weekend fast approaches I am more than aware that I have been neglecting certain things, and that I want – as well as need – to get back into them once more. The break in Baltimore meant that I had to leave many things on my desk, just waiting for my return, no […]

Just So Tired

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 6, 2014 in Personal |

It’s amazing what a change in time zones can do to you. You know that I’ve been back in Germany for most of the weekend now, and I thought I’d have caught up with the time difference, the disruption to sleep patterns, by now, but it isn’t so. It was much easier traveling over to […]

Looks Like I’m Not Back Yet

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 2, 2014 in Personal |

If this post appears on October 2, which is today, then I’m still in Baltimore and things have turned out more complicated than I thought. Either that or one of the airlines we were meant to be flying with has canceled due to a strike and we are stuck here. Or, possibly, we’re just staying […]

Far Away: A Small Update

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

First of all, I would like to thank the many people who sent me their best wishes following the death of my father last week. As you can imagine it has been a difficult time for me, we have been separated from another since I traveled over to Germany to study and the only ‘meetings’ […]

Words Cannot Express

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

The hardest thing that anyone has to bear is the loss of someone close to them. My father has died. At the moment we are trying to get flights back to the United States, but it is difficult at such short notice, and some of the companies are hit by strikes in Europe which ground […]

Returning To Normal Days

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

Many students in Germany have already returned to school, some have the pleasure of waiting until Thursday and for those just starting out on their school career, the first school day is Saturday. Each individual State in Germany sets its own term times, which can be weeks apart from one another and causes some consternation […]
