Mr. Normal

A fellow from the hostel for homeless men is often hanging around in front of 'NORMA', the supermarket where people from all walks of life do their shopping.
Usually he´s quite tipsy, holding a bottle of beer in his hand. Although a bit strange, he generally seems to be a harmless guy giving a good counterpart to all the stressed outs around.
One finds him singing, grumbling or, that time when Sylvia was leaving the supermarket, making all kind of comments on the passer-bys. Not the nicest ones.
But when he saw Sylvia, he pointed straight towards her, saying: "And this woman is normal." Can there be any better compliment?
Since then we call the guy in front of NORMA "Mr. Normal".

End of Temporary Urban Garden Nordlichtung

The Nordlichtung is a community garden in the Nordbahnhofviertel in Stuttgart-Nord. The residents had the possibility to use the waste land for gardening as long as there wasn't any construction planned. Since the start in 2011 the land became quite green and colorful as documented on the Nordlichtung-blog: We now try to find a new spot in the neighbourhood. But also we will have a great party to celebrate the good times we had.
