    "Niemand, ich betone, niemand würde dieses Buch in die Hand nehmen, wenn ich nicht zufällig in dieser Band spielen würde. Zufall ist auch nicht das richtige Wort, ich bin eher durch eine Folge von Missverständnissen dabei. Bei "Feeling B" wurde ich als Bassist eingestellt und in der neuen Band wurde ein moderner, technisch versierter Keyboarder gesucht. Da frage ich mich, wie viel von meinem Leben ich selbst bestimmen kann. Manchmal überlege ich auch, was aus mir geworden wäre, wenn ich in Westberlin oder in Vietnam geboren wäre. Noch spannender aber ist es, darüber nachzudenken, was noch alles in meinem Leben passiert. Ich rechne ja jeden Tag mit einer Katastrophe oder einer tödlichen Krankheit. Oder bin ich schon dement? Da muss ich mal nachdenken. Wo ist meine Brille und warum sitze ich hier eigentlich?"

    I must admit that Tuesday’s election was a bit odd for me. For the first time in nearly two decades, I spent it as a spectator rather than a participant. In ordinary times, I would have missed the push and pull, the spirited debates about the size and scope of government. I was content to sit this one out.

    "Jeff Flake: Republicans Must Move Beyond the Cult of Trump’s Personality" is from the November 07, 2018 Opinion section of The Washington Post. It was written by Jeff Flake and narrated by Sam Scholl.

    Manche Sachen glaubt man erst, wenn man sie erlebt hat. Manche auch dann nicht. "Ich trete auf das Rad des Kessels, um mich hineinzuschwingen, stelle aber wieder mal fest, dass dort kaum noch Platz für mich ist, denn da steht schon die Gasflasche für die Flammen drin. In den Boden sind Lampen eingebaut, an die ich nicht rankommen darf, weil die viehisch heiß werden. Ich habe mich bei einer Probe mal darauf abgestützt und mir dabei fürchterlich die Hände verbrannt, da blieb richtig meine Haut an dem dünnen Schutzgitter davor kleben."
