Tea After Twelve · June, 2017

We live in an age of constant crisis rhetoric. But despite the warnings of impending doom, has the sky ever actually fallen on our heads, as the comic- strip heroes Asterix and Obelix have been predicting for centuries?

No, it hasn’t. In Germany you constantly hear the phrase it’s “five to twelve”, meaning that “the end of the world is near”.

But we’ve survived twelve o’clock countless times. What would it be like if it were after twelve already? Imagine… you could reflect on all the positive contributions that have helped us not just survive, but thrive.

Perhaps this is the time for you to sit down, have a nice cup of tea, and gather some inspiration from Tea after Twelve!
