A tale of two apples
some time ago I bought two apples
one I ate the same day
it tasted like cardboard (and not at all like an apple!)
The second one I put in my bag
not wanting to throw it away
because it’s food, right?
It’s been lying in my office for weeks now
growing older and older
while I’m waiting for it to rot
Today I finally put it in the trash
and got a new one immediately.
This is an analogy
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)
