The essential things

Some things start to impact you more than you initially expected. Sometimes, this feels like life overruns you, and you lose sight of the essential things. While not knowing what to do in this situation, the sensation of increasing overload spreads. However, finding a targeted solution is quite challenging when feeling powerless, helpless, and on your own.

Another problem is losing focus. Since the whole view becomes blurred, you can’t see everything well. Therefore, making the right choice amid uncertainty is hard in the gloom of the moment. In the end, the only solution might be to concentrate on the essential things to find your focus again.

Bauhaus in Tel Aviv’s Sheinkin Street

I took this photo in May 2022. It shows the balcony of a classical Bauhaus building in Sheinkin Street in Tel Aviv. The city  hosts an impressive amount of Bauhaus buildings from different eras and styles. They were designed by mostly German Jews fleeing Nazi Germany before or during WW2. Though the German Walter Gropius developed the Bauhaus style in the city of Dessau, you can barely find any Bauhaus buildings in Germany today. This is because it was declared as “entartete Kunst” (degenerated art) by the Nazis and therefore forbidden.
