Silent moments and work go usually not hand in hand. But besides all the hustle and bustle in our working life, there are some moments of silence.
Moments where you forget the world around you. Where you just enjoy, reflect and fill up yourself with inspiration and energy. Those moments are precious. A gift. ..and the strangest thing is, they are suddenly just there.
Those are a few of my silent moments at work:
To travel is one big aspect of my working life. This matches well with my preferences for traveling. Yes, of course, it can be exhausting… …but most of the time I enjoy it to be on the way.
Sometimes I asked myself if it’s a kind of escape. Maybe. But not in a bad way… …because it enriches me, gives me time to reflect, inspires me to many new ideas (which I usually, unlike at home, write down on trips immediately).

no craft beer from Berlin
no craft coffee in Moscow
no crafted tailoring from Milano
….THIS is crafted… …no fancy Hipster Stuff
…this is crafted by people for people.
…people at the Moscow Metro with my eyes….

“It is spring, moonless night in the small town, starless and bible-black, the cobbledstreets silent and the hunched courters’-and-rabbits’ wood limping invisible down to the sloeblack, slow, black, crowblack, fishingboat-bobbing sea.”
(Dylan Thomas, Under Milk Wood)
The Nón lá, the vietnamese rice hat. This style of hat is used primarily as protection from the sun and rain. When made of straw or matting, it can be dipped in water and worn as an impromptu evaporative-cooling device. By its diameter of 40 cm it also covers the average size of a shoulder from snakes falling out of trees. Hmm, good to know.
For all that we love about our jobs… …and for that we struggle with.
