„Because of the exceptional relationship between man and nature, which renders him homeless to a certain extent, it is important for a human being to find a way of orientation within the world and thus establishing a new relationship with the world. All passions of human beings are ultimately aimed at the reduction of homelessness.“ - Erich Fromm -

intro. The taste of salt lies on your tongue while you wander around. Surrounded by a place where the wild ones search for their inner peace. Silence embraces you while you are watching old oak trees waving in the wind. Thoughts crawl into your mind while waves are moving cautiously closer to the shore. No land in sight. But there will be no right wind for a ship without a harbour. You won´t hardly notice your homeland as long as it´s there. Like good air that you breathe and take for granted. You can see their value when both are missing. Your lungs will hurt from the fume in pubs and your soul will hurt because of the forced displacement. You travel around the world to look for what you´re missing. And you´re coming home to find it.

„It‘s a funny thing about comin‘ home. Looks the same, smells the same, feels the same. You‘ll realize what‘s changed is you.“ - Eric Roth -
