… I was a young student of marine sciences. You see me here 1982 on board of a research vessel fighting its way through the unruly waves of the Baltic. I am fond of the ocean and its creatures, still. Made some progress since those days, not only in terms of my professional career, became even a bit wiser – at least I hope so. And this is what this blog is about, how I see the word and humankind in all its enigmatic beauty.
