Diary entry for 13 April 2005, To the Castle and Back

„This year didn’t begin well, either for the world or for me. Its beginning was foreshadowed by the waves of the tsunami. You had to ask yourself: was the planet trying to tell us something, warn us of something, challenge us to take some action? In other words: was this just another one of the billions of cosmic events that create the history of the world, or was it something more?“
