Blackout

An observation by Lilli

A foggy and dark Tuesday morning, just another busy day in our office. Everybody was trying to answer each and every email immediately. All these young designers just staring at their monitors and trying to design and to draw as quickly as possible. Cell phones ringing, printers printing. Hustle and bustle …..

All of a sudden it got dark. No lights, dark screens, the phones stopped ringing, the printers stopped printing. Silence everywhere. Power blackout in the whole district.

The young designers and architects rushed into my office screaming:  “What has happened ? Who turned off electricity ? We have to work, we have to finish our drawings ! Nobody is allowed to stop us !? We have to go on working immediately ! ….” I couldn’t believe what I heard them saying. They were in a desperate condition. Nobody is allowed to stop them …

Some of them called the electricity company and complained. “We have to work, we have to finish. We have to …” One of the young ladies nearly got an asthma attack ! “I cannot recharge my Iphone !”

Hey guys – calm down, relax, enjoy the silence, have a coffee break, go for a walk, have a chat, just take your time … Nothing wicked has happened.

I looked out of the window into the garden. All these marvellous warm autumn colours. Aren’t they wonderful ?

All of a sudden the sun began to shine.

 

 

The sun is always shining

 

About Michaela

I am a wanderer and a wonderer, like you are. I love our journey and to walk in the company of friends – to learn, experience, share, laugh, cry and above all I simply love this marvelous, magical, mysterious life. I have no plan (cannot believe I am saying this) and my only intention is to be truthful to myself and others.

    And one person realizing that, being that, is “being the change” , bringing the change we want to see, because everything changes even if ever so slightly around that person – in the office, in the government, in the house, in the store……………..at home.
