I have a few obsessions which you will see reflected here.
The first is books. You will see that in my blogs.
The second is East Germany, the country we like to forget in our view of German history, but which lasted for forty years and influenced the two generations which grew up in that period. For more on that, see my Books section.
And then there is my more recent obsession of running, which helps keep me sane. And allows me to be competitive only with myself (better for everyone).
