25/01/2023 Street Lights

Early morning – the street lights switch off and the day starts in its grey dress called “moody winter”. I cross the river and breathe in the view towards the city center. Going east, I enter the less known area. With a fresh croissant in my hand I walk along this main street with fashion and food stores. There are lovely backyards with small businesses and a special architecture. To walk through unknown streets is the most intense way to connect with a city. I still remember street names in London, Paris and Hongkong. Shops come and go, street names stay for decades.

Life in a big city always offers new experiences around the corner. You do not have to stick to one way to reach a fixed location. Try another one. Find new perspectives and discover new street lights to connect yourself with your daily environment. It enriches your presence.
