Dead ringers

Incorrect use of language generates monsters and leads sooner or later to unpleasant surprises. Get over it. A dead ringer is merely an exact replica, a look-a-like. Nothing to do with morbid urban legends about prematurely buried people saved by a bell in the old times.

Kindheit

When the child was a child,
It was the time for these questions:
Why am I me, and why not you?
Why am I here, and why not there?

From Song of Childhood
by Peter Handke

Snowy playground

When the child was a child,
It played with enthusiasm,
And, now, has just as much excitement as then,
But only when it concerns its work.

From Song of Childhood
