Creation: The Ultimate Proof?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 30, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

I had the dubious pleasure, a few days ago, of overhearing a conversation about the ultimate proof that there is a God or, if you will, a god. It was delivered by a middle-aged woman to a man, who clearly had no interest whatsoever, but played along just for the ride. In essence it began […]

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 […]

Man In The Shadows

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 10, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

Not many people get to celebrate it, and certainly not many people have their birthday mentioned in the news media around the world. Prince Philip, Prince Consort, the Duke of Edinburgh (and so on) is ninety-four years old. The only reason that I mention this, since I have nothing to do with the British royal […]

Jobsworth: A Little Thought Goes…

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 8, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

For anyone who doesn’t already know it, I travel a great deal by bus. Every college day I make my way to the local bus station, climb into a bus which takes me to Bremen, change over to a tram which takes me almost to the college door and, every evening, I do the same […]

Pondering The Shopping Basket Of Others

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 2, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

Have you ever stood in a long, slowly moving queue in the grocer store and, for want of something better to do, tried to imagine what the person in front is going to be eating for their evening meal? I do it now and then although, perhaps I’m lucky here, the queues tend to be […]

Twitter: Getting Good Placement

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 29, 2015 in Internet |

The saying Timing Is Everything has had its day. Now, with the fast-moving, interactive, shallow-concentration days of the Internet and social media, placement is everything. If you can get you message across in exactly the right place at exactly the right time, you’re in there. The trouble is, no matter how many algorithms may be […]

Biography: The Most Important Attributes

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 28, 2015 in Publishing |

I grabbed my usual copy of Philosophie Magazin from the kiosk while waiting for the bus and leafed through it with great expectations. The June / July issue is about food, and food, while not something I write about a great deal, is one of my interests. It is fair to say that I, along […]

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 […]

Selfies: Blow Me A Kiss

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 3, 2015 in Photography |

I’m not so sure that it is a generational thing, more something everyone goes through at some time in their life, like playing in mud or eating worms. You stand in front of a mirror and pull a few faces, check your hair, turn and check your ass. Well, that is the way that it […]
