This is an ode to a friend. Dear Stephan, first things first - I love you. Not keen on having sex though ;-) I love you for being you. You taught me a lot of things. Among all of the things I have learned from you, is how to truly and utterly forgive. A few people know that I have disappointed you deeply (and that's the friendly version) - back in the days. I abandoned you on top of that. And then, after almost 20 years, I realised that I was the asshole here and asked him to forgive me. His answer was as simple as, and literally, a kiss. I still remember how surprised I was, but at the same time relieved from all my guilt. I started crying the same second. You saved us endless hours of talking and started building our new friendship. Can't thank you enough for that. And now, almost 3 years after, you were, and still are, the most authentic and therefore utmost trustworthy person I've known. Thank you for your friendship. I can see, and feel, you really mean it! As yet
Not without a little pride I am very pleased to be able to pronounce that my colleague and friend Marco and I managed to get a new sofa into our shared office. We plan to use it as thinking-couch, or meeting couch for visitors. Mostly ;-) This said, using the term "new" is actually not true. This is the very first sofa that made it into an office of our firm, that isn't the boss' office. And we didn't even ask and got this thing in - whilst crossing fingers! Coincidentally, our boss came to our office (which he does usually once in a month) the same day and congratulated us for this awesome catch. And he took a seat in this very sofa, being the first one to do this anyway! HAHA. We loved it. This just shows that you are still responsible for your own happiness and if you don't do so, no one will. Life is just very good to us. We got this sofa for free.
Living next to the Pfennigparade is humbling me on a regular basis... today I saw a guy with no arms and legs. Seeing this makes all your problems appear as null, and lets you rethink your priorities. And yes, I am happy. And privileged. 60 years of success Get a school degree. Be able to work. Live on your own. Three completely normal wishes, which, though, appear unattainable for many a person with a physical disability. We, the Pfennigparade Foundation and our 16 subsidiaries, help to make these wishes come true. The Pfennigparade registered association came into being in the early 1950s when committed Munich citizens supported the cause of those affected by the polio epidemic. What began with calls for donations more than half a century ago has developed into one of the largest German rehabilitation centres for physically disabled persons. The foundation block for Pfennigparade's goals was laid back then: Opening up opportunities – shaping the future to help persons with a phy
