Recommended reading: How To Change Your Mind – The New Science of Psychedelics by Michael Pollan.
Michael Pollan explores the history of psychedelics and shares recent research.
It’s a really interesting read and covers perspectives on psychedelics from different angles like history, politics, society, psychology, neurology, etc. mixed with personal insights and experiences. My guess is you’ll most likely learn a few things about psychedelics you don’t know yet.
As far as I know, there is no German translation yet.
Another recommendation is Michael Pollan’s Netflix documentary ‘Cooked’, where he looks at food and cooking. Every episode nurtured the nerd in me (for everyone who knows me – yes, there’s also a part about fermentation).
I decided to change some things and use this space differently than I used to. Originally I had set up this blog mainly for my photography. Over the last years my (creative) focus shifted and expanded, so I stopped posting regularly on here, as in my head this place was only about photography.
Lately I got rid of some of my social media accounts, generally decreased the time I’m spending on social media, and thought about how I wanted to use my time online. The thought of having my own place where I share my thoughts and things I work on/spend my time with started to feel right and I realized I already have the space, I just had stopped using it.
Strangely enough end of summer always feels like a time of new beginnings for me, so why not start changing on here too, and make it a new beginning of some sorts.
I don’t really have a concept for this place yet, I just know I want to use it for different things I’m interested in, and have a wider definition for myself of the things that can go on here. There will still be images, and I have a feeling there will be more words than there used to be. So, let’s see where this goes…
Sunset, Donauinsel, Vienna. Summer is not over yet, but the light has already changed…
