the last day

well, there was s.th. strange in the rainy air. and there was this sad beautiful white pigeon which just did not fly away ...

my new boss and me, the only two people in the office on that late friday afternoon, thought it came to say us the worldwide peace is here ...
i have bought some bread in the vending machine to feed it, but it didn't touched the bread, just ran from one side to the other ... so strange ... it was not hurt as i could see it, but maybe it did not recognize from its floor perspective that it has to fly 3 floors up in order to come over the glass wall to reach its freedom ... but a bird should be able to fly even more than 3 floors up, shouldn't it?

few hours later it was dead :-(, probably because it flew directly against a glass door / window / wall ... R.I.P, single pigeon

any lessons learned? yes! it is important to change the perspective in order to see the solution / rescue ... it is important to live a fulfilled life as we never know when it will be over
some wisdom from sadhguru?
btw, paul mccartney's 'single pigeon' was my favorite song before my youngest daughter was born ...

crazy clouds

i do not know, what is wrong or somehow different: the clouds, the air, the chemtrails, my eyes or my camera? why? i have seldom seen such nice colors in the heaven as there are the last few days over munich ...
of course, there is raining a lot and then we have shiny sun rays ...

das haus mit der roten fahne

what an interesting experience! friends of mine took me to a film presentation in the old communist movement center in munich: das haus mit der roten fahne (the house with the red flag).

it was a little bit like a museum: old but still working and operating printery, library, meeting rooms, cinema, bar, storehouse, many many old (+ new) posters and flyers, ...
well, the communist groups use to meet here for more than 40 years, but now wants the city of munich (the house owner) shut it down ;-(
the printery (and cinema)
about the (finance) crisis in greece
the library (and meeting room)
the neighborhood
few more pictures here

we have watched sergej eisenstein's silent film the general line (also know as 'old and new' which is the direct russian translation) about celebration of the collectivization of agriculture .... there was so much poverty shown in the soviet villages and also the factory workers have to work probably 12+ hours a day then, so in that context made communist ideas a lot of sense, if you asked me.
unfortunately, the whole eastern europe and all other socialists countries did not reached communism, but developed a dictotorship of (communist) politbureau instead. sooooo sad ...

ANYWAY, our wealthy and reckless society can't develop much further the current way as we destroy humans and especially out environment + nature at a brutal speed, so we have to change the way we think and act => Я Ξ √ Ω L U T ↑ ☼ N

if you asked me, the best way into a peaceful and sustainable future is the path, which jacque fresco described (resource based economy without money & monetary system. it is not utopia, just listen to this genius architect & inventor):

munich's museums

what to do on a rainy sunday in munich? well, it is always a good idea to visit one of the many munich's museums. the state owned museums provide a reduced entry fee for only 1 euro per person on sundays, so it is also not expensive, my dears :-)

bayerisches nationalmuseum (bavarian national museum):

however, i wanted to write this blog post last year as we visited the residenz museum with friends (that nice guided historical tour was a birthday gift for me) and the völkerkunde-museum with my wife + eldest daughter within few weeks. we also tried to visit the bavarian national museum with my wife, but it was a nice sunny day, so we just made many pictures from outside and continued to walk in the nearby english gardens at the river isar. today we finally managed to visit the national museum from inside, too :-)
  • residenz (residence of the bavarian kings) ~ pictures see below
  • völkerkundemuseum about nations around the world - the (only) nice parts were polynesia/micronesia and the special exhibition about myanmar, so we decided to visit myanmar this year ~ pictures see below
  • lange nacht der museen - at the long night of munich's museum we especially visited the beer museum and a guided historical tour through the old city center
  • nymphenburg castle accommodates especially paintings + the nearby educative men & nature (children) museum (mensch & natur), where we were really often with our daughters when they were small
  • MVG museum (public transportation) is the new home of the gold & silver show edelmetallmesse
  • BMW museum ~ more pictures coming soon?
  • bayerisches nationalmuseum (bavarian national museum), enjoy few pictures:
völkerkundemuseum (08/2016):
polynesia / micronesia
north america
africa
residenz (08/2016)
