A man who has never gone to school may steal from a freight car; but if he has a university education, he may steal the whole railroad.

And then there were trees, almost hidden, but I could see them…

Life is no straight and easy corridor along which we travel free and unhampered, but a maze of passages, through which we must seek our way, lost and confused, now and again checked in a blind alley.
But always, if we have faith, a door will open for us, not perhaps one that we ourselves would ever have thought of, but one that will ultimately prove good for us


(If you ever visit a friend in a rehab center, don´t forget your camera. There may be many interesting corridors, I can tell you 😉 !



Suddenly shadows

Suddenly shadows

The night let me sleep
The morning is bright
Gone clouds let the sun come through
And makes the warmth of yesterday disappear
Cold car, cold steering wheel
Easter holidays are close
Gasoline gets more expensive
Office computer is booting
Caroline Herschel discovered comets
More than 200 years ago
Happy birthday says Google
Daily work is beginning
Filling numbers in lists
Is that what I want to do?
A short break
A bread roll and a herbal tea
Motion denied, motion approved
Sunlight stays outside
Daylight lamp inside, at least, at least?
Lists and mails
Questions and answers
Ordering online
Canceling online
The open window brings fresh air
And cries of seagulls
Dreams of the sea
Stop! Work again
Lists, mails, motions, orders
Fifth floor hallway
Footsteps of workmates
Telephones are ringing
Silent voices behind closed doors
Lists and accounts
A workmate eats the last piece of birthday cake
He is always hungry
Lists, questions, phone-calls
An apple a day keeps the doctor away
What about a cup of coffee?
Applications, telephone enquiries
Sounds of motorcycles from the street
Still sunny outside
A new PC-program
A friendly workmate is installing
Hurrah, it works!
Searching of files
Lists, mails, phone-calls
Answers to never asked questions
Salmon in the staff canteen
Laughing in the elevator
Urgent job in the office
No problem, just stay calm
Friendly people on the phone
Compliments of a workmate
It is almost springtime
Contacts to other offices
Mails, phone-calls, lists
urgent job done 🙂
Suddenly shadows on the wall
Sun in the office
Lists, accounts, numbers, motions to deny
Motions to accept, mails, questions, answers
Time to go home
A stop at the sea
A sunbath on a bench
People passing by
With dogs, without dogs
Sounds of workers at the other bank
Shadows again
What a joy!

Although beeing a couple isn´t always easy. Let´s listen to them.

Two chairs are talking: “We need new wallpapers, darling, just look at the wall.” “Not before my cover will be renewed!”

Noone knows how I feel inside.

Sometimes I´m feeling lost inside. You better keep the distance, it can be very dark inside of me, too.

Mona Dee photography  inside g

Inside the doors are sealed to love
Inside my heart is sleeping
Inside the fingers of my glove
Inside the bones of my right hand
Inside it’s colder than the stars
Inside the dogs are weeping
Inside the circus of the wind
Inside the clocks are filled with sand
Inside he’ll never hurt me
Inside the winter’s creeping
Inside the compass of the night
Inside the folding of the land
Outside the stars are turning
Outside the world’s still burning

Inside I´m trying to find a place of colourful joy, the joy that will burn out the pain.


Inside I´m strong.
