Looking at other people’s blogs I am sometimes astonished about how different we all are. And I am sure many people would find my own blog absolutely weird. I would have thought initially that the people who become my followers would be like me or have similar interest, but you people are an astonishingly diverse mix. There are some who seem to be a bit similar to me, but there are others who are completely different. I like that! Diversity is one of the inevitable consequences of creativity and creativity is one of my favorite topics. 🙂
It is funny how things that are the main content of life for some people don’t mean anything for some others, and vice versa. Some people’s lives revolve around football (or another kind of sports), around fashion/makeup/outfit, books, cooking, computer games, flowers and gardens, horses, painting, dogs, god and church, rock music, weapons, carnival, dinosaurs, motorbikes, you name it…
I am an acarnivalist (despite living in Cologne), afootballist, afashionist, acomputergameist, adogist, atheist, agunist and amany-other-thingsist. However, these things are not defining qualities of me since they describe what I am not. If you ask me to describe myself, I will hardly answer “Oh, I am an afootballist”. That game is just not part of my life. If you are a “footballist”, you’ll have to turn somewhere else; sorry I cannot contribute anything there. Or another example: I know many of you have dogs and love them, but I hope to be forgiven that I don’t understand dogs so well.
Positively, I like thinking (about a diverse range of topics), reading, writing, bike riding, going for walks, growing vegetables, looking at abstract art, observing protozoans through a microscope and a couple of other things. Some of the stuff I like might not mean anything to you and I might not be interested in some stuff that is terribly important for you, but I am happy you are following my blog anyway. 🙂
