I thought I had it all figured out on my about-page. And I thought everything that was missing there would be explained on my who am I-page. But when I went and had another good look at these pages because of the Zero-to-Hero blog challenge, I had to conclude I was wrong. Or at least, that there was still missing something.
Why am I here?
Well, imagine this place a long, long, long time ago, not so far from where we are now. There was really very little there then that we now can grasp. Mostly, it would be seen as black, dark, maybe even cold.
The earth was born. Sea life slowly evolved to non-sea life – lungs were developed – and then apes became humans. The earth’s crust moved apart until we had the continents know as the Americas, Oceania, Europe, Asia, Africa and Antarctica. On one of those continents, my ancestors decided to settle.
There was a paradise where a lonely man lived. He was so lonely his creator decided to make a woman out of one of his ribs. Seduced by a snake, they were eventually thrown out of paradise and had to learn to fend for themselves. They did. Against all odds, they survived, they procreated. And even though one of their sons killed the others, they managed to populate the world with up to this point around 7 billion offspring.
They decided to build the tower of Babel to get back to God. But God didn’t want them back. So in order for them not to reach their goal he waved his magic wand and suddenly no-one understood what the others were saying anymore. They gave up on their project and wandered sideways until my ancestors settled where they settled.
I am sure that others probably say something altogether different yet again…
But here I am writing to you. For you. For me. Because I like it. Because I want to be read. Because I have adventures I would like to share. Because I want you to tell me yours. Because it is what I do and I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do.
Thank you and see you around!
