I'm living in a small village nearby Hannover in Germany. I'm the only one office employee at an old farm, a manor (= "Rittergut"; difficult to translate). Old lances, swords, knight's armours and stern resp. strictly portraits are watching about me. Outside (im Calenberger Land) we manage modern arable farming. I'm the accountant and the do-all for anyone. It's an interesting and a varied job. My husband is a kind of farmer too. He works for an assurance and checks damages of hail. And he is a specialist for vegetables and an expert for cultivation of peas. Don't laugh! It's important that the peas you've bought, now on your saucepan or your plate, are perfect. Arable farming, peas and wood are our themes, but I am interested in many things:
I love reading books, I like knitting socks meanwhile listening audio books or Music. I love classical Music, "Oldies" and film music. I like listening radio and sometimes seeing movies, esp. documentary films about history, also film adaptions of literature or thrillers with a surprising end or movies which are a little bizarre. I am not a big fan of TV, especially not now.
I love architecture, paintings and lithographs, surprising cartoons and dark humour. I don't love cute pictures very much, please excuse me.
I love the blackbird's song when it rains gently. I love the simple daily life: a roof over our heads, a table and some chairs, a bed, a stove, a cellar or a fridge with something to eat and do drink in them, friendly neighbours, happy children, hospitality, helpfulness, guests and good discussions - and a warm light in the window. If you see a soft muffled yellow lamp in our window: we are at home, come in.
So, send something what you yourself enjoy receiving. Maybe, you tell something about you. I'll be happy about your postcard and your informations! If you have no idea: Send me a photo-card of cemeteries or burial culture, paintings of ancient art, sculptures of modern art, libraries, music instruments, close-up pictures, postallove/greetings from, peas, wood, kitchen equipment or interior, restrooms, Bauhaus, Chronikkarten, botanical drawings, Ole West, roofs, black and white, anything about bees and spiders, historical film or advertising posters, nasty cartoons, unusual, bad, politically incorrect (but not extreme; I am settled liberally).
Many greetings! Martina
