Glasses on the table. Plates are set. Fresh oranges from the market. The new vase on the table.
The picture straightend up, the cd`s sorted, napkins with dots bought. The rotating table decorated with pretty things, salt sticks, chips and prepared fruit still there from yesterday. Postcards still have to be written for the Sunday invitation. The birthday presents put aside. A short moment to nibble on a piece of cheese. The TV running, I must watch out, a friend is performing. The backpack is ready packt, travelling to Barcelona in 2 days.
The search for more.
You can’t decide? So take both! The choices are many. We want to make things nice for us. And with all the fun activities, plans and possibilities we overwhelm ourselves. The room is full already. So is the calender. It would be better if only half as much would be on the table. It could happen that a shark landed on the table so that we can burst the bubble.
The detail is so beautiful. So much beauty is not now beautiful.
2 small children. Personally and professionally exhausted, finally the long desired break. Holiday? For sure. But why alone? No, we go with friends – and their three children. One just 8 weeks old. Where? All in one house in Denmark. Of course! The walls – as everywhere – hollow and thin! Is that enough? No! My pregnant sister is coming with her daughter – there is another free room!
Summary: 5 adults and 6 children. Four weeks.
The theme: We long for company. Fear loneliness. Flood ourselves with appointments, dates and company. We just can`t get enough. Always in need of more. Enjoying the company. Which we love and need. But there`s no time to rest.
The truth is so sweet, so bittersweet.
