Eva von Schirach: Das werde ich dir büßen!
In the garden of childhood there is only you and me. The city was blown up by a meteorite. A giant has ripped the humans from the ruins and flung them into space. You bring me a rabbit. Because we like animals. We devour entire boars. Both of us are strong. The garden of childhood is completely just. If you don’t follow the rules, neither will I. In the garden of childhood, there is only you and me. Come. Stay. Hit me.
Family pictures are keepsakes. Yet a “family picture” may also be the mental picture we form of a family: the visualization before the mind’s eye of a web of emotional ties that lends expression to a certain idea of domestic community.
