So fast, the way time flies
And I am still here (in Cologne)
My loved one, he’s nowhere near
Always breaking up on Valentine’s.
He calls my name like no one else,
Wish he’d be the one in my Soul Talk,
And my Longing turns into a hawk,
Like a love letter on Valentine’s.
Yes, I wrote him “Love You” one time
And soon, my Soul told me to be brave:
He was dating again, they’ve said.
Oh well, I don’t believe in Valentines.
I won’t ask him to be mine,
Because I don’t believe in Romance,
But I do believe in Innocence
And hope to hold him once – on Valentine’s.

This post is continuing The big gap, part 1.
Being in a gap: how does it feel? As the Covid-19 lockdown continued, people started to relax a little bit and myself I got a little bit too relaxed – till my job was gone.
But I was prepared. I knew what to do and sent my job applications right away, no need to start crying over spilled milk, life goes on.
I couldn’t have managed it this way if I didn’t experiende the loss of a job before. That time I felt like my world was going down. I was overwelmed and couldn’t cope for a while. Looking back it seems to me that I was lacking the proper tools and the proper reactions to handle that. And sadly I did not find the support that I had needed outside of me, I did it alone. Well, we all get wiser in time …
This slowing down of the public life and of parts of the economy affected my personal life in a way that a diet does – this one being a “stress diet”. The chance was now so palpable to invest more time and energy in my home, cooking skills, work-sleep balance 😉 I have watched so many shows and movies as in the previous two years combined – satisfying my brain’s thirst for stories and data.
Now I actually get the chance of a great job and I feel a lot more motivated – even excited! – about the new beginning that is slowly coming.
