Wake up!

A view from Bramfelder Brücke, Hamburg, Germany

It has been a long (winter) hibernation season. Way too long for me. My blog was stagnant for eight months, and I was stuck too. Not much happened, not much changed.

Today is better than tomorrow

We all have this. Put things aside, thinking tomorrow or someday. Just not now, not today. I say: Tomorrow I’ll go to gym. Next week I’ll finally start running again. I’ll update my blog when it will be ready… I’ll do that, but first I need to do something else. I will travel to take photos, but…

Caballo Blanco

Some days ago A few days ago was the anniversary of Caballo Blanco’s death. A wonderful character who inspired Christopher McDougall to write Born to Run. Looking back, that’s when I knew the search was over. We didn’t ease up—we soon got back on the trail and kept beating the brush until daylight…
