The white, green, black forest

Between the years, I spent some time at home. My parents live on the border of the black forest, and now that I’ve been living away for a while, I really enjoy being in this forest again. How could I not see its beauty when I was younger?

Also, I continued reading “Home space” by O. F. Bollnow again, a book about all my favourite topics: home, space, distance, travel. We found this book a couple of years ago in Sydney and only later we discovered that the original was actually written in German and the author was a professor at my university in Tübingen. Things had come full circle once again.

“Homesickness and longing for distance are so close to each other that one must ask oneself if the two things are not basically the same.” (O. F. Bollnow: Human space)
