On David Searjeant's blog "Distant Lightning" I found a link to Alan Summers' important-word-project. Have a look at it here: http://www.oneandother.co.uk/participants/Alan_S

Well done, Alan! Thanks a lot, Dave.

And yes: Serendipity!

I watched it live (well, an hour later) and loved it! I had sent him a word, late, and he didn't get to it. He emailed me later that day. Serendipity- were you one of the people that sent that? there seemed to be a few.
What a great idea.

I sent him "laugh" and felt very honoured that he read it out and added my explaination. It was one of the last "important words" and you will finde it after 0:55 h, J. Andrew.

Serendipity - this word beame magic in this event. You will also find it in Dave's Distant Lightning: http://distantlightning.blogspot.com/

Thank you for your friendly comments.

Best wishes
Ralf

Ok, Dev, I'll try a transcription (and if anybody has heard something different, feel free to correct me - my English is too poor to understand everything properly):

"Ralf Bröker from Germany. Don't know him, but it's nice to get words of people all around the world. Ralf's thought is, the world is just one small country. His important word is laugh: "I love laugh because since the day I learned it at school I liked to laugh and it's so clear what it's meaning when you read it. Laugh!" But he is also free to connect it to love, when you hear somebody saying the word. Indeed laugh and love go together as long as both are present. And what a funny moment it was, when he watched his first Boris-Becker-tennis-game on TV and an honourable voice somewhere in Wimbledon said: 0:15! Do you like tennis? Is there anyone to say 0:15 for me? Thank you! I am English, human me."

Best wishes
Ralf

Mmmh, me again (last comment, promised). Here is my mail-comment I sent to Alan. And some parts of my transcription have now to be seen as false:

"I love "laugh" since the day I learned it at school, 'cause I like to laugh and it is so clear in its meaning when you read it. But "laugh" is also wonderfully connected to "love" when you hear somebody saying this word! Indeed: "love" and "laugh" go together as long as both are present. And what a funny moment it was, when I watched my first Boris-Becker-game on TV and a honorable voice somewhere in Wimbledon said: Love - fifteen!"

Sorry
Ralf

"Indeed: "love" and "laugh" go together as long as both are present."

Agree cent percent, Ralf :)

and to say about me -- I just laugh loud when things go wrong...and look at them slowly falling in place :)
