Letter from Alice
2011, letter found by chance in a Subway, 52,5x52,5cm, Staedtische Galerie, Plochingen
Dear unknown reader,
I have forgotten my book,so I decided to pass the time of driving tunnel to Ostfildern with writing a letter.
I haven't written a letter for a long, I mean,directly with hand. What a pity that this beautiful ritual is used fewer in our fast moving time. In my childhood I had a letter-friendships, and it was a pleasure when the voltage of owner-occupied tinkered with envelopes ripped open. but I do not want me at this time complain, she also has good sides,and what one makes of his life,this one is responsible,at least in this time in which all options are open, you must just be brave enough and the chances take from the comfort and safe life squirm out. This is even not so easy, I know. I'm just thereby, in such a comfortable life ...
With a steady boyfriend and all these overhead expenses. The German State indeed Knows how to make its citizens to settle down. I am afraid that I will be eventually stuck in this life so that I won't be able to escape, that my thirst for adventure will be quenched in my heart. That would be terrible, because in that case I would stop living, stop developing and stop learning. I think, I am a nomad and too much setttledness isn't good for me as I will try to become restless through other things. What about you? What are your dreams, your fears, your wishes? Are you living the life that makes you happy? I hope you do. An if not, what is standing in your way to change your life? Are these reasons really inevitables? Best wishes, Alice
