Noisy Society

This days I realized how noisy our society is. In Germany there is always a road, a highway nearby, where cars and trucks come and go, or someone is working with a machine, or a plane crosses the sky…

This days we are reaching high temperatures, the drought is a fact, and Coronavirus makes a comeback around the world.

I was reviewing my pictures and I found one of an excursion I made last year to the Eifel, a low mountain range between Germany and Belgium. Between the fields and woodlands of the Eifel, there was a chapel, the Bruder Klaus Chapel built for the architect Peter Zumthor.

The sobriety and stillness of the place were moving.

These days of heat, drought, illness and wars I missed the stillness of the chapel.
