ABOUT ME

Klaus Holzapfel

Klaus without the Santa
Nonsense requires a serious interest in life :)

I have started many websites and blogs before. All of them with a focus on their audience and providing relevant content.

Tales from the midst of life is different. This is the most personal project I’ve started so far.

I am writing about what is relevant to me – not what’s relevant for you.

Reading this blog will take some of your time that might better be invested elsewhere.

This is not a “must read”. You choose if you want to visit my personal space or not.

I am in the midst of life and intend to stay there for a very long time.

I am also trying to live my life – not just let it slide by and see it come to an end – way before I might pass away. This, of course, is a constant struggle and that is what part of this blog is about. My journey with all its ups and downs is the core piece of this blog.

I have a number of long-standing love affairs with things I am passionate about. One part of this blog will cover my “affairs”.

Sometimes I get really mad. I need to vent. There is a rant corner on this blog just for that.

More often than getting mad I get highly amused…especially by odd stuff. Of course, I’ll write about that as well. That is clearly the lighter side of the blog.

This blog serves as a journal for me – in the true sense blogs were originally designed to be – before they became the powerhouses of modern content distribution.

This blog is also garnished with typos. At least you know I didn’t outsource the stories of my life;-)

Latest From The Blog


There, finally...the occasional blog posts :)

To helmet or not to helmet?

I grew up in a world where everyone whore helmets when riding a motorcycle and no one wore them for skiing or cycling except when  racing. That conditioned how I felt about them. I see people in Colo...
