Make every moment count

Goethe´s Faust talks to the moment and says ““Verweile doch, du bist so schön” – “Stay a while, you are so beautiful”. Probably the most famous quotation in all German literature. On the next Creative Mornings Event Jens Roeper will try to create a moment to stay. He will think and talk about “what is a moment”, “how does a moment feel”, “what means “time” in that relation”? Moments are defined as emotional instants – and they are bigger than just a framed period of time. They stand for an experience at the instant moment or in the past, triggered by smells, sounds, tastes, feelings. Moments are individual. Moments can change your life. Moments make decisions. We will engage you to find out your moment and try to make you feel it. Never neglect your moment!
