For the first Whispering Gallery of 2022 we’ve chosen the topic “Roter Faden” (in German used for a “common thread”, something that “runs like a thread through …”).
The origin of this saying is not clear. It either originates in the greek mythology or from the red thread which is woven into all ropes which are used by the British navy.
Goethe used the analogy in his Elective Affinities.
We looked at the common threads of last year and reflected on which gave us energy, which topics where close to our heart or are rather rational topics.
Which threads do we want to take into the new year, which ones do we rather cut off?
