I spent this past weekend in Der Prignitz, one of the most rural and undeveloped areas in Germany. I had intended to post from there. As it turned out there was no cell phone reception and the wireless was nonfunctional in the château where we were eating our meals. At Landhaus Bresch, where we were staying, the puckish gardener/innkeeper was telling me about what a wonderful place it was for people to come to lose their addictions. He said with a giggle “half of the time, the internet doesn’t work and you have to drop that addiction, too.” I never asked for the password. Instead, I relaxed and soaked in the healing power of green.
