„How we spend our days is, of course,
how we spend our lives.'

– said Annie Dillard, author of „Pilgrim at Tinker Creek“ – a nonfiction narrative book that contemplates life, nature and the world. To keep track of the days and contemplate life, that's also the aim of my blog notes and instagram posts.

„Wie wir unsere Tage verbringen, so verbringen wir auch unser Leben“ – sagte Annie Dillard, die Autorin von „Pilger am Tinker Creek“, einer preisgekrönten Sammlung von Beobachtungen und Gedanken. Die Tage und das Leben im Blick zu behalten, das ist auch das Ziel meiner Blogeinträge und der Instagram Posts.
