Life’s Circles may End where it started.

A journey that began 43 years ago is about to be joined by a loop that has been swinging around the world in many and different circles. It is now 43 years ago since I was on holiday in the small Spanish town Calella located in the north and not far from the Spanish / French border.

We will soon drive to Perpignan, France, and will be staying there the next several months. I have not been in Calella since I left the town 43 years ago before the start of the first part of my career in the Sirius Patrol at Thule Air Base, Greenland.

This circular trips through 43 years has been the experience’s and limits hardships of good and evil, but a multi-international and unforgettable celebration that cannot be put into words with all the many wonderful people I have met, natural phenomena, lots of hotels, airports and a fauna of cultural events.

Together with my wonderful Catharina we will explore this amazing area around Perpignan, France – The  Pyrenees with a myriad of “living” history seen through the ancient palaces, churches, pilgrims paths and roads and the many living and dead artists who loved the area as inspiration for their works of art.

We will stay on the outskirts of Perpignan and almost lean towards the Pyrenees, and will have some professional work in our luggage, but the primary objective is initially inspiration, discovery and meeting with local people and nature throughout the region.

Improvisation is an important ingredient in any kind of experience traveling – Nothing can be planned in ever so many details regardless of technological ages, but a means, of course, it is easier to navigate today than 43 years ago, where I otherwise learned to navigate by the sun and the stars with an old Greek sextant.

The fruit of many years’ work at an international level will now be placed in the incubator, edited and updated for a useful manifestation of life as it unfolds and the world seen through a bird-eye. The meeting with the past’s memories or ruins can perhaps shed more light on life’s countless combinations in a relationship or simply a statement of my own motto “You cannot borrow an advance on your own life’s future, but use your energy in your life now” – otherwise you’ll risk going bankrupt.

Enjoy wherever you are in the world.

    Kurt I read this and was thinking…how good it is when we have a “rich” past to remember, when we have friends all around the world, stories to tell, music to be sung…Life is so beautiful, no matter where we are> Be always happy!
