The photo shows J.B. leaning against the rock of fortune in Johann Wolfgang von Goethe´s garden in the Weimar Ilm valley. Here, a huge ball is sitting on a square, both made from stone. The square is supposed to symbolize all things which are stable in our lives and the ball stands for continuous change. This ball might be looked at also as a symbol for the planet which transports us during our journey through the endless universe, our planet earth which has seen many challenging things done by us or our forebearers. Time to embrace our planet and give it a warm hug.
