ICH WÜNSCHE DIR ZEIT
I don't wish for you to have a lot of things
Just one thing a lot of people do not have
I wish for you to have time -
Time to be happy and to laugh
And if you use your time wisely,
It can turn into something great
One of the great adventures of last year was to start a podcast with my weltreporter colleagues. We are the biggest network of German freelance journalists, covering 160 countries all over the world. So many stories to tell!
In our podcast we take it all personal, describing how our lives and the place we chose as home influence our work, and how our work effects our lives. We share how we find interview partners, our favorite encounters, inspiring experiences and frustrating local customs. While doing this some of the stories that never found a home in any print, TV, radio or online publication now finally can be told. In our newest podcast it is all about TIME.
The poem in the picture my mother once gave me in turbulent times of my life. It now is a constant reminder, framed next to my desk.
