This is my blog.
That would be, int. al., a teacher, channel (I discovered that rather recently, although I have been one for quite a long time) and poet, bringing beautiful esoteric and spiritual poetry (You see, I like what I do : ) ).
I also studied Law in Tübingen, Berlin and Freiburg, and, in a postgraduate course, Japanese Studies in Tübingen and Kyôto. After finishing my Ph.D. in Law at the chair where I had worked as a research assistant in the Law of Nations, I went to Japan as a Coordinator for International Relations in the Japanese Exchange and Teaching Programme. After that, I worked in Tôkyô and in Yokohama and Fujisawa (Kanagawa), teaching German and English at language schools, culture centres and a high school, and in a very nice little juku, too, wile also concentrating on my writing.
After a while back in Germany, living in the medieval city of Esslingen am Neckar, pursuing poetry and teaching, I made my way to Australia, where I lived in Southbank, Melbourne, and had found a beautiful place close to and overlooking gardens, city and mountains. Thus, I could write (I leave the poem in here, though I have moved onwards to travelling, for I both like the place and the poem):
Beyond the park and the sea I live,
closer to heaven than earth, I may think;
and, yet, my Heart’s desire is love,
seeking the Silver Seas.
After some travelling and writing, and an interlude in Bayreuth, Richard Wagner’s city, and another one in Montevideo, crossing the Río de la Plata from time to time, to Buenos Aires, I am on the road again, looking for new opportunities around the world.
If you have any work or job to do, online or onsite, high or low level, that might meet my interest or support me in my writing, please do let me know. Asia, New Zealand, Oceania, South America or any other place which is nice or provides me with a good shelter would be welcome. You can find a brief résumé here, by the way
I offer, in addition to my teaching work, life coaching and might be open to contract work, too. If you need advice or a writer for your website, a poet for your soul, a researcher for your knowledge or a channel for pointers or poetical advice, I could be the one to turn to. Please do tell me, if you should have a job for me, or a place to stay and write!
Here, I would like to impart ideas and information which I feel to be potentially helpful or at least interesting, be it to me or to my readers. The information might range from internet subjects and daily life to books, poetry (By the way: often, my poems have no title – yet, WordPress “demands” one. So, even if I did not put the title in square brackets, please note that the title of a post with a poem does not necessarily mean the poem has that title.) and more spiritual subjects. Political topics might be rare, although a few have found their way in over time.
If you can read German, please also have a look into my German blog, as often I will also write articles in German. So you can find many additional articles there, too. Occasionally, I may also publish articles at Interplanetar.
Although this website has the form of a blog and that might lead to the assumption that only newer articles were relevant, I would like to encourage you to also browse through older posts, using e.g. the categories, subjects and tags or just going back page for page. You may find quite a few posts that are of a general interest beyond the day on which they were written – e.g. the poetry, but also many articles. Select what speaks to you…
