Texas: Fighting A Losing Battle

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 29, 2015 in News & Opinion |

There is a saying that the battle may be lost (or won) but the war is not over, and it is exactly this fact of life which many people in the United States should take to heart. The Supreme Court may have the final word on same-sex marriage as far as the law goes, but […]

The Darkest Days Of Humanity

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 27, 2015 in News & Opinion |

It is hard to believe that some count the last hours as being the darkest ever. I do not mean in a natural light sense – sunlight, daylight saving time and all that – but in the sense of a set back for the human race, a turnaround in the wrong direction, a return to […]

My Internet Superpower Should Be…

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 18, 2015 in Photography |

The first thing I thought when I saw this photograph on Flickr’s Explored today was: I wish I had taken this. I wish I was the person standing behind the camera who was able to capture this single image, this moment in time forever. For me, as a very inexperienced photographer, it has everything that […]

Summer Sun And Bellybuttons

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 25, 2015 in Absolute Hot! |

If the sun would just come on out for more than an hour at a time, and not be broken up in its visits by rain, we could almost claim that the summer is here. And with the summer we’d see the end of those enticing half-warm spring fashion statements, and the real ‘summertime’ attempts […]

Education For The Road

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 12, 2015 in News & Opinion |

There is a petition laid out in several shops and petrol stations around town following a fatal accident on the roadway near here. A young motorcycle rider was killed when his bike crashed into a car at a crossing near the edge of town about a fortnight ago, and a few local people are now […]

Mother’s Day: Abusing The Memory

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 10, 2015 in Internet |

Today, in some countries around the world, is a day when we say Thank You to those who, selflessly, cared for us during those first years of our lives. We thank our mothers for the time they sacrificed for us, for the effort in bringing us into the world and the love and care shown […]

May Day Occupations

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 2, 2015 in News & Opinion |

I’m told that it used to be the French, back in the day, then the English took over and now, it seems, the Germans have taken the lead. Hardly a day seems to go by without one union or another calling for their members to go out on strike because the ‘management’, who they have […]

Selfies: The Camera Is Dead, Long Live…

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 30, 2015 in Photography |

In theory everyone who takes a self-shot, a selfie, uses a smart phone. That is what the manufacturers want us to believe, and that is what we mostly see out on the streets, in front of tourist sites and near to major catastrophes, fires and traffic accidents. The figures show that camera sales are dropping, […]

The Downside Of Dreaming

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 29, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

There are some dreams you simply do not want to remember when waking up, some dreams which make you break out in a sweat, leave you exhausted and confused. As a child I often had nightmares, fragments of which remained – and remain – in my memory. As an adult I have almost no bad […]

What To Call My SO?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 12, 2015 in Personal |

Relationships are so complicated, sometimes it is difficult to know what to say, what to write, especially when you’re trying to preserve a small amount of privacy. So far I have been successful, keeping most if not all of my private life out of the ‘public eye’, as far as the Internet is concerned. No […]
