I had a particularly quiet day, alone, on my bike, in East Frisia. The right amount of silence, the right amount of noise: only a few cars passing by, sometimes other holidaymakers on bicycles, a cow says something incomprehensible from the field next to the road, here a family man who shortens his lawn 3 millimeters.
No phone ringing, no car honking, no music.
And then all of nature.
The endless plain, wind turbines in the distance. Meadows, fields, moats that branch off from small rivers. Fluffy ponies and drowsy cows. Sheep. The dike and the mud flats. Seagulls. Wind.
I don't think much really happens here. Sure, today you can rent e-bikes instead of normal bicycles. You can learn kitesurfing, or go inline skating instead of roller skates. Wiggle over ropes in climbing parks instead of climbing a tree. But then the innovation is largely exhausted. It looked no different twenty years ago, and maybe not forty. I dont know.
But I can't imagine it any other way.
And that's exactly right.
