status report

January 7, 2019

It’s that week of the year when the holiday decorations all get put away and it’s the first normal week with no interruptions and yet nothing feels quite normal.

Predictive text:  we were messaging about restaurants and instead of “Sushi Hana” my phone thought I wanted to type “Hanseatic.” I am oddly smug that my phone thinks I talk about the Hanseatic League in every day conversation.

Heading back to yoga after a month of travel and dealing with hacking respiratory ick. This oughta be interesting.

Writing. It’s going slow. I wish it didn’t go slow but sometimes that’s how it shakes out. Baby steps.

    Wow ! Thanks for a deeply interesting dive into Wikipedia regarding the Hanseatic League. What a deep reaching organization. The causal links to world development of events, technology, power shifts from royals to the people, endless transference of ideas. It’s staggering.
    Even reaching to the modern period, this line was in the Wikipedia page under modern connections.

    Lübeck named “Hanseatic City” (Rostock’s football team is named F.C. Hansa Rostock in memory of the city’s trading past). For Lübeck in particular, this anachronistic tie to a glorious past remained especially important in the 20th century. In 1937, the Nazi Party removed this privilege through the Greater Hamburg Act possibly because the Senat of Lübeck did not permit Adolf Hitler to speak in Lübeck during his 1932 election campaign.[23] He held the speech in Bad Schwartau, a small village on the outskirts of Lübeck. Subsequently, he referred to Lübeck as “the small city close to Bad Schwartau.”
