Jessika Jürgens-Cardini, 20.08.1980 – 08.01.2021

For Jessi

One of my my favorite songs as a teenager was „Life´s what you make it“ by Talk Talk. Back then it all felt so easy, everything seemed possible if only we throw in passion, curiosity and all our energy in those things on our wish list for life – of course it never felt like that back then as the teenage soul creates its own dramas. 
Well, it did not take long in general and the bigger lessons and the deeper understanding of life kicked in in full bloom as there was and is of course this huge blind spot of existence waiting to be recognized: not all out there have the same chances to unfold, personal and socio-political circumstances extend their claws, the people around one may be not as kind as they should be – and also the simple brutality of nature shows face and some do not get the time span they deserve.

Why I write those words now?

Last week the world lost a fantastic human being: Jessika Jürgens-Cardini.
Jessi was one of those blue birds that care more about others than themselves, being way to modest to push her own agenda into the world, even tho her talent shined brighter than the sun.
Jessi looked at the world with endless curiosity, fascinated from the miracles out there we others do often not see at all. It felt to me like she was tuned in reality (whatever this is) in multiple time zones, seeing and feeling way more than us normal people. She could take you on a journey of words from one observation, reflection or option to another with glowing eyes and unstoppable enthusiasm. Sometimes I was not sure what she was talking about, but I always sure to stick to her flow as it promised some secret access I would never be able to find myself.
