Notes

  • Dedication: To Herbert and my daughter Clarissa
  • Epigraph: Notes From My Land

    Felsen waren da

    und wesenlose Walder. Brucken uber Leeres

    und jener grobe graue blinde Teich,

    der uber seinem fernen Grunde hing

    wie Regenhimmel uber einer Landscaft.

    Und zwischen Wiesen, sanft und voller Langmut

    erschien des einem Weges blasser Streifen,

    wie eine lange Bleiche hingelgt.

    Rainer Maria Rilke

  • Epigraph: 'Wenn du willst, dab der andere dich versteht, mubt du in seiner Sprache mit ihm reden.' Kurt Tucholsky.
