Peter and the cranes

Posted by Claudia Moser on 9:19 AM
Sunday ... the day saved just for us. We wanted to eat some sushi and go and see Inception the last Leonardo di Caprio movie (btw worth watching it). We did not plan anything else, we wanted to be together and enjoy a free day. While we were walking we started seeing cranes everywhere, Germany is in a building fever in the summer. So of course Peter started asking questions about site works, crane capacity (small remark: my background is economical engineer on the civil side, so somehow I still can active my dormant knowledge). And of course he was amazed when I explain how to calculate the maximum lifting capacity (weight) by just looking at a crane. All I can tell you is that his fascination lasted the whole day and I was so happy to see how is face iluminated when we looked at a new crane and know more about it than before. Man and the machines :)

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
