Maybe it's the fact that we are about to leave just another school, but recently I have been thinking of my old school days. And my dear school mates. I wished I had kept contact.
Chris went to school in the US and Germany. He had to learn German when he entered the humanistic Gymnasium in Munich. Even though he moved around quite a bit he still keeps contact with some of his old friends from school. The Internet is so amazing! Well, maybe it helps that his name is still the same, but mine has changed a bit.
I grew up as Gudula Buecker in Telgte, Germany and went to school in a Catholic girls school. When we were studying world religions, learned how to critique them and then read Nietzsche, who said "God is dead", I told myself that I would really like to become a Lutheran. It made a lot of sense to me. But since God was dead there wasn't any reason to switch from one dead denomination to another.
Well, little did I know the plans He had for me!
Hey, if you by any chance are one of my old friends from St. Mauriz, send me an email. Ich spreche auch deutsch!
