Do I belong here?

Spring has come to my beloved home land and here, in Germany, chilly and cloudy. In this part of the year, Christians celebrate the Easter holiday and the streets are full of decorations and colored eggs. Yesterday I went out to the street but couldn't find my place. Again, same feeling comes up with one question – do I belong here?


  • Desiderat


    Beyond a wholesome discipline,
    be gentle with yourself.
    You are a child of the universe
    no less than the trees and the stars;
    you have a right to be here.
    And whether or not it is clear to you,
    no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

    Therefore be at peace with God,
    whatever you conceive Him to be.
    And whatever your labors and aspirations,
    in the noisy confusion of life,
    keep peace in your soul.

    With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
    it is still a beautiful world.
    Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

    --Written by Max Ehrmann in the 1920s
