Because I blogged relatively rarely over the holidays, I have a backlog of photos that I haven’t bothered putting here. There are a lot of dragons on walls and in paintings that I’ve been running into lately.
The one above was in Landsberg am Lech, which is a little village west-southwest of Munich. Because of the drudgery of getting everything set up in the new flat, I’m equating my daily struggle with fighting dragons.
It’s certainly dramatic. I get that.
Even though these tasks aren’t insurmountable, the sorting of them is momentarily daunting. I look at the competing websites that offer a DSL connection and they look indistinguishable to my eyes. I call the service number and they’re quite good at throwing numbers around…numbers that then swirl through my head, as I try to comprehend what exactly it is that I need.
But in the meantime, I’ve got only my phone connecting me to the web. Aside from a few moments in the café, I’m without internet. Last night, I read a book and actually went to sleep at a reasonable hour.
My hope is that even when I’m completely connected again, I’ll remember to turn all these devices off periodically. Just me and a cup of tea and my thoughts.
Dragons be damned.
Landsberg am Lech is a wonderful quaint place! Love it! We love eating ice cream along the river, which lies to the west of the town, in late summer.
But perhaps you missed that Herr Hitler penned some of his horrible hate in the local prison there. Or maybe it was by design.
Yes, I didn’t want to get into it. Could’ve also talked about Johnny Cash being stationed in Landsberg when he was a radio operator in the US Army. For such a small town, it really has some history.
It is hard to choose between service providers. Or, dragons for that matter.
Have you decided on a dragon? How did you come to that decision?
Am very curious.
