I have this amazing friend who made me this wonderful calendar for the pre-Christmas days:
Here in Germany we call them “Adventskalender”, Advent being the 24 days before Christmas.
It’s a collection of her favorite quotes and each day I am allowed to draw one. And I have decided to turn this into an Adventskalender for her (and you) as well!
So each day I will be posting the quote of the day and the picture/story/comic that came into my mind after reading it.
Here’s yesterday’s quote and drawing (“Without Energy there’s no Synergy” – Willy Meurer)
And this is today’s quote:
The translation would be:
“Anger isn’t negative. The purpose of anger is to transform negative energy into positive energy.” Andrea Kaltofen
Let’s see what I will make out of that one!
that there are people
with whom I can be
the way I feel
oh, to be like the tress, shedding their leaves
each one a little love letter, trusting that spring will come.
You think I’m arrogant,
but my shrugging ist just to mask
my not knowing
what to say.
You think my lack of questions
is a sign of disinterest
but what’s lacking
is only the courage to ask.
Only because I don’t join
your chit chat
doesnt’ mean I don’t feel comfortable
in your company.
Walking besides you
means I’m trusting you
with what’s growing in it.
I proudly present the result of my very first cooperation with the awesome Liefka from Längs! Her words, my drawings. Voilà:
in dir werde ich altern.
Denn hier brauche ich keine Feuchtigkeitscreme gegen Falten.
hier stelle ich mich einfach auf die Straße, wenn das Gesicht mal wieder spannt.
this is where I’ll grow old.
Because here I don’t need moisturizer to prevent wrinkles.
here I just walk the streets when my face becomes too tense.
in order for me and you
beasts come to live
calling me to dance
