2012 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 2,800 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 5 years to get that many views.

Early Morning Magic

5 a.m. CEST. I open the window and find an amazingly clear sky.
I hear the kew-wick of a Tawny Owl and look at the Winter Circle:
The Pleiades high above ( I notice myself giving a reply inside, a loud ‘good morning!’) and the constellation of Orion, Jupiter travelling between them, Sirius to the east. Many, many other stars…
…and a shooting star.

Top of the morning to you!
