Context driven

Reflections about being does not exclusively refer to my being (Je pense donc je suis, which is not logic but fine for the moment) nor to being a human being amongst others. Although it may be a part of what there is to mention and to reflect on, the most current thought and observation that is crying for attention seems to me the matter of context. I personally feel being drowned by the amount of information I can access every day and which I maybe should have skipped because there are so many others waiting in the pipeline. How can you still extablish connections between political deciscion and analyze art if you constantly need to follow the newest news while you are lacking substanial background information? Honestly, I do not know how to solve this, I know, tons of books and articles have been published on this topic (something like “smart information management”) and they all probably have better or worse suggestions. I decided not to read these because I anyways tend to possess a book for every problem and end up in another information stuck. Since the best way to learn is to do it yourself, the even better way probably is the way without manual. At least in this context.

Martha’s

I just walked to Martha & Bros. to grab a beverage which will guide me through the next hours of preparation. It is a three minutes walk from the place where I am staying and honestly, it is mostly the unplanned and short interruptions that make your mind erupting the best thoughts and pictures and even allegories. And while this might have been thought already a thousand of times and maybe written down 999 times and we all repeat each other – we don”t. The things you create may seem similar to what someone else already has been doing before (and you ask yourself: why the hell should I start doing something that others have done before, too? That is stupid copying and maybe even fraud). But: the things you create are also made by the audience you adress it to, by those, who wear, eat, read and talk about it. Give this fact a thought: it is not the thing itself but the character of its creator who shapes the value of the thing. Don’t expect to being succesful though but neither rule it out.
