Kraft durch Freude

Fidus, „Gebet an die Sonne“, 1913

Fidus, „Gebet an die Sonne“, 1913

2,320 words

Übersetzt von Deep Roots

English original here

Als ich jünger war, hatte ich, wenn ich niedergeschlagen war, immer spontane kleine Erlebnisse, die mich sofort aufbauten. Ich hörte ein Lied im Radio. Ich schaute über ein Feld, als plötzlich die Sonne hinter den Wolken hervorkam. Ich spähte über jemandes Zaun und sah eine Rose blühen. In diesen Momenten hatte ich eine Erfahrung, die schwer in Worte zu fassen ist. Der Grund dafür ist teilweise, daß die Erfahrung überhaupt nicht aus Worten bestand, die mir durch den Kopf gingen.

What the Drugs Have Taught Me

Hieronymous Bosch, "The Temptation of Saint Anthony"

Hieronymous Bosch, “The Temptation of Saint Anthony”

3,793 words

Strength Through Joy

Fidus, "Prayer to the Sun," 1913

Fidus, “Prayer to the Sun,” 1913

2,327 words

German translation here

When I was younger and things were getting me down, I used to have spontaneous little epiphanies that would instantly lift me up. I would hear a song on the radio. I would look across a field when suddenly the sun emerged from behind the clouds. I would peer over someone’s fence and see a rose blooming. In these moments, I had an experience difficult to put into words. Read more …

I Hate Myself

fight-club2,152 words

“I hate myself.” I’ve said this in the privacy of my own head countless times in my life. In fact, I practically think it on a daily basis. Sometimes it’s deeply felt and sums up a mood that lasts for days or weeks.  Read more …

It heaves and groans. It shimmies and clicks. One holds one breath during the best parts, hoping it will not malfunction and ruin the whole evening. One fears for the performers, halfway expecting it to devour them.

My New Year’s Resolutions

Image courtesy of Harold Arthur McNeill

2,790 words

Every year, near the end of December, I establish plans for the coming year. The centerpiece of these plans is ten resolutions – no more, and no less. I’ve had a lot of practice at this, and I’ve discovered that more than ten major resolutions is usually too ambitious, whereas fewer than ten is not ambitious enough.  Read more …

Hercules battles the hydra

Recently I suffered a plague of flies. It started small, with just a couple. I noticed one buzzing around the living room, moving at a fairly leisurely clip. It was easy to kill, a deed I committed with a dish towel. Read more …

Skyfall

3,353 words

SPOILER ALERT! Do not read this essay until you have seen Skyfall. I would not want to ruin your experience of seeing the best James Bond film in many years.

Bond films always seem to be judged “good” or “bad” relative to other Bond films. But Skyfall is not only a good Bond film, it’s a good film period. Read more …
