Summer in Berlin, starting with light, sunshine and bursting greens everywhere. And with an open window, I wish not to have seen. We all have our thoughts about others and it is always a pleasure to be suprised by them, being so much more. So different to what they appear at first sight. On the other hand, it can come around quite disturbing to suddenly meet someone's dark sides. Saturday night has been about this, some shocking insight just before dawn, and I am still chewing on it. Though the drama witnessed wasn't even about us, I am still trying to get around the fact, that the nicest people can turn into the wildest beasts, and that a smile is not always what is on their mind. Not simply, because it is written all over their face. Of course, I am no spring chicken and have experienced similar things more than once, but in this case it feels extremely drastic. As nobody in the Fishbowl did see this coming. Last night, when having a glass of wine together, the husband said:"I am trying hard to focus on all the great stuff around the corner, but this story provokes my sense of justice. In a very stressful way." A tough lesson on how to distance, to wait and see and, finally probably a lesson on how to release that stress for our own good.
