Fundraising

While you’r here, please take some time to visit: www.betterplace.org where I created a fundraising page for the Childern-hospice Sternenbrücke. Sternenbrücke children`s hospice is a facility for children and teenagers with terminal or degenerative illness – a hospice for young patients for whom there is no cure and who have a limited period left to live. Sternenbrücke needs our help, and they would really appreciate a donation. I will, after the Marathon des Sables, donate one Euro for every km that I ran. Thanks for your help.

Some MDS facts

Desert Solitare

“May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds. May your rivers flow without end, meandering through pastoral valleys tinkling with bells, past temples and castles and poets’ towers into a dark primeval forest where tigers belch and monkeys howl, through miasmal and mysterious swamps and down into a desert of red rock, blue mesas, domes and pinnacles and grottos of endless stone, and down again into a deep vast ancient unknown chasm where bars of sunlight blaze on profiled cliffs, where deer walk across the white sand beaches, where storms come and go as lightning clangs upon the high crags, where something strange and more beautiful and more full of wonder than your deepest dreams waits for you — beyond that next turning of the canyon walls.” Edward AbbeyDesert Solitare

Dark wood

Dark wood

I need to be alone. I need to ponder my shame and my despair in seclusion; I need the sunshine and the paving stones of the streets without companions, without conversation, face to face with myself, with only the music of my heart for company. —Henry Miller, Tropic of Cancer
