"You can't depend on your eyes if your imagination is out of focus."

Welcome to my personal website

After my retirement I have found the time and leisure to concentrate on things that are at my heart.  You will find here a medley of matters that are worth looking at. Due to my limited programming skills, it's a rather old-fashioned, no-frills website. Enjoy reading.

Holzschnitt Himmelsgewölbe

This renowned woodcutting by an unknown master from around 1530 (which possibly was created only in the 19th century) illustrates nicely what I have in mind, namely man's courageously overcoming mental prisons.  Just as the person in the picture curiously explores what is behind the veil at the beginning of modern times so we all can free ourselves today from the bans and restrictions we were brought up with.
This whole situation is beautifully illustrated as a parable in the movie The Truman Show by Peter Weir from 1998.
