Another year is about to end and we are quickly approaching the final countdown. We wanted to thank all of our readers and fellow CaliforniaGermans for their loyalty and support throughout 2015!

We end the year with an excerpt of a poem by Erich Kästner. The following lines are from “Der Dreizehnte Monat” (The Thirteenth Month) the last poem out of the cycle of poems called “Die 13 Monate” (The 13 Months).

We wish you all a healthy, happy and peaceful 2016!

„Es tickt die Zeit. Das Jahr dreht sich im Kreise.
Und werden kann nur, was schon immer war.
Geduld, mein Herz. Im Kreise geht die Reise.
Und dem Dezember folgt der Januar.“

….

(Last stanza of “Der Dreizehnte Monat” part of “Die 13 Monate” by Erich Kästner)
