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).

Writing for Fun

This post simply grew from a wish to write, after having read a traveller’s site.  It was rather a personal wish than an impulse as will often make me write that caused me to write it directly into the blog.

I know, that I should write;

yet, how should I know

if ever

I reach those, who wish

to read my words?


There is an ocean, and beyond its shore

love waits. But who amongst you can tell me

from whose grace, or from whose heart it does spring?
