A pointer to Germany’s totally boring, functional government

The last year has been a time of upheaval at the polls.
Brexit, Trump, Macron.

Today is election day in Germany, but it’s nothing like the spectacle that consumed the USA for a year.

Nature abhors nothing, not even the wasteful intoxicating noise of colors. Nature’s yearly reoccurring megalomania. The painting from along the Hudson river, upstate New York is by Albert Bierstadt a German immigrant from Solingen.

Then we’ve got those, full of zest, whose days run short and years quickly chip away. For them its been as if last years autumn has just passed minutes ago. Was it not minutes ago that a traditional costume procession of some nine thousand people, men in traditional short leather pants and beer kegs drawn by six studly, cold-blooded horses. Among them a huge ox drawing a tremendous barrel?

To them girls in low cost traditional Bavarian clothes are well worth the desirous glance as some are in sedate Lodenfrey fashion.

Much like nature, they abhor nothing and accept the steady change of seasons, in which every period offers something of its own.

That is what Hans Haas, the most down-to-earth, legendary chef of Munich’s gourmet temple, Tantris says in a recent tv documentary. In command of the German language watch an excerpt here.

May I ask you, adored reader, to share this with friends and family. It may well be possible you are contributing to the common good with the likely occurring, that Hans Haas collected life wisdom resonates in the open ears of a politician, an architect or urban planer.

Think of it as the antithesis to mono culture of which we know it did not do us much good, if any.

Thank you.
