House Hunting: Is Now The Right Time?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 23, 2014 in Personal |

At what age does a person – or family, couple, whatever – decide that it is the right time to start house hunting? I am sure that we all look at houses as we wander by, wondering who lives there, what it would be like to own such a house, especially some of the mansions, […]

Review: Getting Colder

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 22, 2014 in Articles and Reviews |

Some people live in the past, either because they’ve never managed to come to grips with modern life, or because there are too many good things still left, they believe, which make it worth hanging on to. Yet others look back on the past, especially their own lives, and ask themselves what could have happened […]

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 […]

Courage: Death On Your Own Terms

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 14, 2014 in News & Opinion |

Brittany Maynard has, for some people decided to take the easy way out: she has planned her own death for November 1, and already has the medication to carry it through. She is suffering from cancer and will die sooner rather most people would wish and, if the diagnosis is correct, her death would not […]

Lecrae Moore: It’s A Bad Argument

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 13, 2014 in News & Opinion |

Let me get one thing straight before I even begin: I have no problem when someone wishes to follow a religion, regardless of which one it may be, or no religion at all. Each to their own: we’re pretty much all adults and should be able to make our own decisions. I also have no […]

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 […]

Protection Against Piracy: Worst Case?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 10, 2014 in News & Opinion |

For those who have campaigned, complained or sworn against the use of digitalized security software on their music, preventing them from either playing it on certain types of systems or copying it for personal use – because no one copies music to sell it on to others online – perhaps your fears are indeed becoming […]

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 […]

When Your Mind Turns To Dreams

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 8, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

I don’t know whether you’ve seen it recently, but it seems almost to be a trend now to Tweet about other people on long journeys. There are those who are unruly, make a fuss all the time, upset the other passengers and, eventually, get escorted off the plane by the local police. Then there are […]
