Daily Coffee Talk~56/365

Hi from a cold German Evening,

The world feels more and more alien to me with every passing day. 2022 is proving to be an even more intense transition into a changing future than the years that preceded it.

What kind of world are we leaving our children? They are a generation that was born and grew up in an accelerating age of technological advancement and an ever narrowing focus toward screens and social media with less and less connection to nature and its wonders.

How will they reconnect to what matters the most? How can we guide them towards a more harmonious, connected and natural state of affairs?

Maybe winter weather , shorter days and exploding covid numbers are promoting these thoughts and contemplations, but they are real and dominate my thoughts.

Good night from here and I hope you wake up to a bright new day full of promise and change to the better.

Good Morning, and Happy New Year!

We are here, it’s 2022 and we walk into this year with hope, excitement and wistfulness.

Fires were sent into the skies around the world symbolizing the erasure of what no longer fits and welcoming what wants to happen now.

I wish for the balance to tip towards health, sanity, happiness and a purposeful future.

What does the future hold?

Good Morning,

Tonight we say goodbye to 2021 and walk into 2022 with caution and wonder at what it might be holding.

The intense events seem to be getting only more intense, the uncertainty less certain but the hope and wonder is always there. Hope is there in the first moment we open our eyes in the morning to a clean slate after another planetary rotation, it is there in the stability and constancy of every sunrise, in every flower blossoming, blade of grass growing and in the wonder, innocence and hope that live with every uncorrupted child on this planet.

I wish for us all to move with strength, hope and resilience into this new year and with more thought and care for our amazing hospitable home, our blue planet.

Morning Coffee Talk~ 20/365

Good Morning,

Every morning I wake up with a small excitement about what the new day may be bringing. This sense of unknown is there no matter how pre-planned the day or week is. Some part of it is never up to us, an unexpected event, an unusual encounter, a strange weather phenomenon, a rainbow, a new discovery, it could be anything.

I could never imagine a life where all is predictable, it would seem so robotic and unnatural to what a human is and is designed to do.

So with this new year arriving swiftly and intensely, I welcome change and the unexpected unknown.

I wish you a peaceful transition and hope that many good things show up at your doorstep.
