This article has the following background: I had a train-day ahead of me – from Potsdam to Frankfurt am Main and back. In the first intercity the bord bistro did not work and therefore I was forced to contemplate half-awake about my life instead of working efficiently. My thoughts wandered off consistent with the date, December 29th toan end-of-the-year review which transformed quickly into ‘my year in numbers’.
In Frankfurt I met a good friend for lunch and she was highly enthusiastic about my compilation, so I decided it might be worth being posted. Voilà.
The year wasn’t easy. For anybody. In this context, I hope my sense of humor in the list will be understood.
The list could give the impression that my year was sensational – first and foremost professionally. The professional list mainly showed me how much got canceled due to Covid-19. Humor is the best way out here.
And maybe the one or the other person remarks that nevertheless a lot happened – indeed.
