One of the lovely solitary oak-trees, standing out on the hills near the country-house Panker in the east of Schleswig-Holstein, with the Baltic Sea in the distance. With its strength it survived the storms of perhaps even two centuries already. May it still stand out much longer! And may it give some of its strength to us in the New Year!
