Weekly Photo Challenge – Inspiration

Schweigeminute – A minute of silence

My inspiration for writing short stories is without doubt the German writer Siegfried Lenz. Wherever I go I have a book with me. And in most cases a novelle from Siegfried Lenz. Most readers know Siegfried Lenz for his roman Deutschstunde, The German Lesson, but I prefer the smaller romans and novelles like Schweigeminute or Das Feuerschiff, The Lightship.

I have taken this picture from the novelle on the beach, because part of the book takes place at a regatta and on the beach. It’s love story and it reminds me of an affair I had a long time ago. An impossible love … I was sixteen and she was much older. Green eyes that radiated. She learned me sailing. Of course I was just a pupil for her and nothing ever came from it but … I still remember her.

Hoi Anne! Dank voor je mooie reactie. Heb een writers block van een paar jaar achter de rug .. Maar ben nu weer, naast het fotograferen, druk aan het schrijven. Leuk dat je even langskomt!
