When I was a student at Cambridge I remember an anthropology professor holding up a picture of a bone with 28 incisions carved in it. “This is often considered to be man’s first attempt at a calendar” she explained. She paused as we dutifully wrote this down. ‘My question to you is this – what man needs to mark 28 days? I would suggest to you that this is woman’s first attempt at a calendar.’ It was a moment that changed my life. In that second I stopped to question almost everything I had been taught about the past. How often had I overlooked women’s contributions?

First they ignore you. Then they laugh at you. Then they fight you. Then you win.
I know you think this world is too dark to even dream in color,
But I’ve seen flowers bloom at midnight
I’ve seen kites fly in grey skies
And they were real close to looking like the sunrise
And sometimes it takes the most wounded wings
The most broken things
To notice how strong the breeze is
How precious the flight.
Es gibt ein großes und doch ganz alltägliches Geheimnis. Alle Menschen haben daran teil, jeder kennt es, aber die wenigsten denken je darüber nach. Die meisten Leute nehmen es einfach so hin und wundern sich kein bisschen darüber. Dieses Geheimnis ist die Zeit.
Es gibt Kalender und Uhren, um sie zu messen, aber das will wenig besagen, denn jeder weiß, dass einem eine einzige Stunde wie eine Ewigkeit vorkommen kann, mitunter kann sie aber auch wie ein Augenblick vergehen - je nachdem, was man in dieser Stunde erlebt.
Denn Zeit ist Leben. Und das Leben wohnt im Herzen.
