ABOUT SHARING…”A shared joy is a doubled joy.”

Poem No. 124: “Smile” by an unknown author

Gedichte, poems

A smile is cheer to you and me
It comforts the weary, gladdens the sad
consoles those in trouble, good or bad.
To rich and poor, beggar or thief,
it’s free to all of any belief.
A natural gesture of young and old
cheers on the faint, disarms the bold.
Unlike most blessings for which we pray,
it’s one thing we keep when we give it away.

Thank you * Danke * Merci!

Yesterday, revisiting “The Red Box” after a break, I surprisingly noticed that The Red Box has hit respectively has already exceeded the 200 followers mark!


…not only for your interest in my sometimes a bit weird mix of posts but also for sharing your expertise, thoughts, opinions, emotions, poems, recipes (= culinary poems), teasers for traveling, arts and much more treasures with me and others. You are awesome and an enrichment.

The about 6-months old, tiny blog “The Red Box” was born spontaneously. I put my cartoons, a couple of pencil drawings and own Haikus online in order to gain some social media insight, frankly speaking.
Soon, I noticed that I apparently enjoy it to research, illustrate and write the posts very much. In times of struggling with my health, the blogging is also a nice distraction and the topics are a reminder of the diversity, beauty & uniqueness of life.

In the meantime, I`ve published a bouquet of 716 posts without really noticing it.
To be honest, I am in particular surprised about the huge global coverage of “The Red Box”.
I like the idea very much that all of us sharing so many interests and issues beyond geographical, culture-, gender-, age-related borders. Well, we are all human beings with the same basic needs, I guess.

Admittedly, I am often curious who is visiting my blog “The Red Box”…who are the readers on the remote island Vanuatu or in Nepal for instance? Are there any readers in my German neighborhood, I could meet in person? What do we have in common or not?

However, whereever and whoever you are…I wish all of you simply the best.

At this occasion, I finally have to thank all the amazing international artists who generously allowed me to publish photos of their art work accompanied by their CVs and artists statements – and who agreed on my personal thoughts & comments in regard of their fascinating work. Merci!

Of course, all visitors are welcome to provide some feedback or comments any time.

Stay awesome!
