Hi Bloggers! Do you have to share a story or a short reflection tagged with the letter “P”? For example I’ve written about a pavilion in Poland (as below) or about parachutes, about paradise and Panama, paper blanks and police power, polaroid photographers and penguin parents, Paris and paparazzi, Pittsburgh and penthouses, Putin and Polanski, priests and paypal, Prague and Padova, psychology and philosophy, Porsche and Pontiac, podlatch phenomenon or passion week, peace and pain etc. – I’m sure you’ll find an own story or a short reflection tagged with “P”! Feel free to add in the comments the link to your personal interpretation of the letter “P”!!!

My mother lived in her childhood near a pavilion built in the Baltic Sea. I’ve never been there. But analyzing my roots I built a pavilion too. Not near a coastal line. Only in an urban city district near Cologne. But nevertheless it helps me to feel like having some roots …
I found out, that my mother as a child went to school in Stargard / Poland [she left me in an orphanage directly after giving birth to me 1945; it took me 40 years to find her on the East German island Ruegen]. I am living now in Germany near Cologne, I’ve never been in Poland, but now I would like to search for my roots near the Baltic Sea coastline; you know the salmon goes back to his roots too, coming from the ocean, going back to the river where he was born; turtles do the same, and swallows – isn’t it a great mystery? My mother lived in Cybowo – I found that via google earth; I have to thank movski, who sent his pavilion photo to some of my flickr-groups; this pavilion is in the neighborhood of Cybowo I suppose. My mother left Poland 1945 during that bad World War II.

after some failures i at last managed to import new fonts into my blog; I realized that I had to pay 30$ for “custom design” of wordpress, to organize support by typekit fonts (difficult for me the payment process too – but now I’m happy: it works!) I always wished to have a blog design which is near to my own roots: using old typewriters in the sixties, when we all had no internet … – thanks for inspiring and technichal support to Patti Kuche, New York; used font type for the body: “Anonymous Pro” (similar to the well known “Courier New”, which I used on my first PC, a “C 64″)
