Präambel
Im Bewußtsein seiner Verantwortung
vor Gott und den Menschen,
von dem Willen beseelt, seine nationale und staatliche
Einheit zu wahren und
als gleichberechtigtes Glied in einem vereinten
Europa dem Frieden der Welt zu dienen,
hat das Deutsche Volk
in den Ländern Baden, Bayern, Hamburg, Hessen,
Niedersachsen, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Rheinland-Pfalz,
Schleswig-Holstein, Württemberg-Baden und Württemberg-Hohenzollern,
um dem staatlichen Leben für eine Übergangszeit eine neue Ordnung zu geben,
kraft seiner verfassungsgebenden Gewalt dieses Grundgesetz der Bundesrepublik Deutschland beschlossen.
Es hat auch für jene Deutschen gehandelt, denen mitzuwirken versagt war.
Das gesamte Deutsche Volk bleibt aufgefordert, in freier Selbstbestimmung die

Einheit und Freiheit Deutschlands

zu vollenden.

- Grundgesetz für die Bundesrepublik Deutschland vom 23. Mai 1949 -

The Awful Truth

One day, whether you
are 14,
28
or 65

you will stumble upon
someone who will start
a fire in you that cannot die.

However, the saddest,
most awful truth
you will ever come to find––

is they are not always
with whom we spend our lives.


- Beau Taplin: The Awful Truth (Hunting Season) -

What will be left at the end of it all
A secret is a strange thing.

There are three kinds of secrets. One ist the sort everyone knows about, the sort you need at least two people for. One to keep it. One to never know. The second is a harder kind of secret: one you keep from yourself. Every day, thousands of confessions are kept from their would-be confessors, none of these people knowing that their never-admitted secrets all boil down to the same three words: I am afraid.

And then there is the third kind of secret, the most hidden kind. A secret no one knows about. Perhaps it was known once, but was taken to the grave. Or maybe it is a useless mystery, arcane and lonely, unfound because no one ever looked for it.

Sometimes, some rare times, a secret stays undiscovered because it is something too big for the mind to hold. It is too strange, too vast, too terrifying to contemplate.

All of us have secrets in our lives. We're keepers or kept-from, players or played. Secrets and cockroaches - that's what will be left at the end of it all.

We will never know

Maybe in our wildest moments
We could be the greatest, we could be the greatest
Maybe in our wildest moments
We could be the worst of all

November has come

Something has started today
Where did it go?
What do you want me to say?
Well you know, November has come
When it's gone away

The meaning of trees
Trees are also a spiritual metaphor. Genesis talks about the Tree of Life and the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. God tells Adam and Eve they can eat of any tree in the garden, including the Tree of Life, but not the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. Trees figure into the myths of many other cultures, including the world tree of Norse mythology, the sacred oaks of the Druids, the Kabalistic tree of mystical Judaism, and Buddha's Bodhi tree.
