April 2005, a friend told me about a book, written by Jon McGregor. "Nach dem
Regen" it is titled in German. Yet the author is English. Last week I looked
for the original book, "After the rain" I figured it would be named,
yet couldn't find it, until I read the description of the book I came across instead. If
Nobody Speaks of Remarkable Things
this one was called.
this title set the tone for an idea I tossed since some weeks, but never got started.
An e-zine, including photos and texts, maybe the one or other book and film review
and also a sorted list of those links that were forming a random link list in
my browser. Yet were to start? Which stories to include, which photos?
I knew the answer: those that were remarkable, yet weren't even meant to become
part of an e-zine. Those sent by friends and strangers, without title, without
they form an issue, in all kind of meanings of this word.
