Actually, I wanted to write about the fact that, one month ago around eleven o’clock in the evening, I sat alone on the balcony of my apartment . I was concentrating on the stars in the sky and listened to The Used’s acoustic album.

Actually, I wanted to write about the fact that, on this Friday, I was sitting on the floor of my balcony, because I hadn’t any furniture left. That particular evening four weeks ago was the last evening I spent in my old apartment.

Actually, I wanted to write about the fact that I had packed all my belongings in boxes and was ready to move and leave. Not only my apartment, but also my old life. This Friday evening four weeks ago was my personal start into a new life.

Actually, I wanted to write about all that… but with all the news you can hardly escape, and all the opinions that are shared in public, it seems too mundane. Normally, I don’t comment events… and today, I would just like to take it as an occasion to organize my thoughts. While a message after the other popped up on my smartphone, I spontaneously have thought about a few lyric lines of Enno Bunger:

„Wenn man mal so betrachtet
sich die Menschen ansieht,
wie sie sich so verachten,
was für Mienen sie zieh’n
[…]
Wo sind die guten Gedanken?
Die Hoffnung auf mehr?
Warum machen wir uns unser Leben so schwer?
[…]
Alles, was wir bräuchten, ist ein bisschen mehr Herz.“

A little more heart…
It does not take more to let others know that you like and love them.
A little more heart…
It does not take more to show them that you are always there for them, no matter how late its is or how much kilometers separate you.
A little more heart…
It does not take more, doesn’t it?

I consider myself as lucky, because in the last few years I have met people who have a pretty big heart and who have always made sure that I’m aware of that.

I already mentioned that I moved out of my apartment. And even if it seems like I have no home now, in the last four weeks, I have realized that I never had just one home. For I have the best friends in the world! They opened their doors to me, let me into their guest- or bedrooms, and let me participate in their lives. I have found a home at all my friends’ – and I am so grateful for it!

You give me a place to stay before my departure. You give me hope that there are still people who care for each other. You give me hope that there are still people who have a little more heart.

Feel hugged!
