Kleine Meerjungfrau / Little meremaid

Hallo ihr Lieben,
kennt ihr Hans- Christian Andersens Märchen von der kleinen Meerjungfrau?
Nun, so in etwa stelle ich sie mir vor. Sie ist vollkommen frei und sie ist glücklich, solange sie nicht weis, dass ihr etwas fehlt.
Das Geheimnis des Glücklichseins ist es vielleicht, das zu genießen was man hat und sich nicht nach dem zu sehnen, was man nicht bekommen kann.
Bin ich nicht weise? (Kicher)
Habt ein schönes Wochenende.
Hello my friends,
do you know the fairytale by Hans Christian Andersen "the little meremaid"?
Well, that is how I think she is. She is absolutly free und happy, aslong as she does not know, that something is missing.
Maybe the secret of happieness is to enjoy what you have and not to long for what you can´t get.
Am I wise or what? (giggle)
Enjoy your weekend

  6. Janine,

    What a beautiful Mermaid!! That is one of my favorite stories from Hans Christian Anderson.

    I lived in the Stuttgart area (Nellingen up the road from Esslingen) between 1976-1978. My husband, now ex, was a dentist in the Army and we lived in a German neighborhood. I didn't want to move into the American Kasernes when they became available almost a year after us living in our apartment...I had made many friends in the area and didn't want to move on post, so we stayed put. My daughter was born in 1978 in Bad Canstatte and we left, reluctantly, in 1978 to return to our home in El Paso, TX where I still does the ex!!

  7. Your mermaid girl is beautiful. Love the colours you used. The fish are cute.
