Obere Schanze

Obere Schanze


 ……..the train again…………this time to Amsterdam!

I had spent the last few days in Detmold. This town was my home for five years (1978-1983)

An intense time of love, relationships, learning, school, work, emotions. A range from bliss/ ecstasy to deep sadness and despair, loneliness and many connections…..

A place to remember with a map of emotions… - each place, each house, a corner, a park, a sign, triggering an avalanche of feelings. In a short time – exposed, I felt like a truck had run over me…….A big soup, too salty, because of too many tears…

Conflicting thoughts like: “I really was a different person back then and – I am still the same……………” All of which is true!!!!
