Connecting my Blogs

As you may know, I like beautiful names and domain names. This may also be one reason for having more than one blog. Yet, for my readers, it might be inconvenient having to follow all of them – so I wondered whether to either create a new one and post in various language there (I thought of http://travels.jewel-of-light.org), an idea that came to me while walking through Perth (speaking of names – one beautiful aspect of Waldorf schools, at least in Australia, is that many children have got very beautiful names). However, for now, it seemed I should keep my separate blogs for English (this one) and German (over here).

May you Break the Rule?

I have been recently telling to some students an old story, which I embellished a bit.

The content of that addition led to the question (which, then, if I reflect upon it, could be a call for me to consider whether I should rather not have added that part….), whether that was my permission to “break the rules”.

That depends, of course, on the nature of the rule or rules to which you are referring, and, possibly, on your aims or motives (which, at this stage, does not imply that the ends justify the means).

A Visit to the Steve Irwin of Sea Shepherd

After having noticed at the Seminar where I am currently enrolled in a part-time course in Steiner (Waldorf-) education for the high school, that a few people were wearing shirts or caps with the Sea Shepherd Logo, it turned out that three of the four current ships of the Sea Shepherd are anchoring in Williamstown, rather close to where I live. Interestingly, it is possible to visit them (still through the entire November, on the weekends). So today, I stood on the bridge of the Steve Irwin.

Hints as to Health

A. Preliminary Remark

A while ago, I wrote this article in German. The article you are reading now is a free translation of it, which I make available here as I needed to translate it anyhow. While many of the links may lead to German websites, you may be able to understand their content by using e.g. Google Translate.

The article discusses some questions of health, for which the right diet is something to be considered.

Australia: Information and Links

If you are interested in Information about Australia, you might be interested in a new webpage I have created. It can serve especially those who wish to emigrate, who want to work or live in Australia or simply stay for longer, but I believe it can also be helpful to the traveller.

It is in German, but just use Google Translate, especially, as many linked websites will be in English.

Have a look at my new information page.

Interesting Job: Romanticiser

Did you know the job of a romanticiser? His task, according to the Frankfurter Allgemeinen Sonntagszeitung (China, wie es tanzt und lacht, 13. März 2013, Reise, V3), to make real the wishes, needs and preferences of the guests, whether those express them or not.

You can get your personal romanticiser if you book one of the villas of the Ritz-Carlton at Yalong Bay, Hainan, China, it seems.

I have been wondering whether to make that a part of my series on nice jobs, and I guess I could, in a way, but from a spiritual perspective I am wondering whether I should. For the FAS describes the romanticizer as a “professional expert of projection” – and our aim is REALITY, is it not?
