About

A wie Atlas is devoted quite modestly to the world. Words and places, ways there and the stories about them. Everything very slowly. Without haste, without checking off any top spots. I only want to be an observer and logger. I want to develop thoughts about landscapes through which I move. I want to capture them in special images. I want to discover artifacts. The traces we humans leave in landscapes. That’s what I’m writing about here. I want to distance myself from traveling as consuming. You won’t find lists of top sights here. Here you will not find a destination to which the way leads by plane. What interests me is the language of things between things. And the knowledge about the world.

A wie Atlas deals with the beautiful things that are close by. So much of it can be found right in the next forest. The spectacle is also happy to take place without a spectacle.

A wie Atlas is an atlas of things, of small places, of quiet landscapes. An atlas of the traces of people. An atlas of ideas. An atlas of microadventures and stories. And not only for my own, but also for those of others, which you can find for example at my book tips.

I want to take responsibility for what I do. I don’t always know how exactly that works either. I am on the search. I would like to invite you to search with me. By the way, you will not find anything here that is based on the exploitation of any beings.

A wie Atlas is my attempt at a site that has the world as its theme. The earth. As it is, as I wish it to be and as I experience it. A wie Atlas is a collection of thoughts and memories. A collection in the form of texts and pictures.

Thank you for your interest. I am glad to hear from you. I am Simon.
