Kurzbeschreibung

Corfu is known as the greenest of the Greek islands. That is why I wanted to go there, together with my wife, Gerhild. To the sea, of course, because I like to swim as far as I possibly can.
On the day before our flight to Corfu, the postman delivered the book “Autobiography of a Spiritually Incorrect Mystic” by Osho, and I instantly began to read. It gave me the idea to accompany our three-week vacation, which Gerhild and I wanted to spend being exceptionally lazy, with lyric poetry and pieces of short prose.
In Petrití, I finished Osho's book, went on to a magazine about Buddhism in Austria, which I had found in the oratory on Vienna airport, and finally read a short crime novel from the guest library of our B&B, Égrypos. During the rest of our stay I barely read anything at all. I simply existed, and took a good look at what was happening inside and around me. This felt considerably medicinal to me.
At any time during the day or night, I was in a receptive state. Our time in Petrití, and the days shortly before and after, saw the creation of all in all 85 pieces, two thirds short prose and one third lyric poetry. I've put them in this book in chronological order, from August 30 to September 29, 2015: Nature observations, life experiences, ideological considerations, dream adventures, and mischief.

Werner Krotz wurde 1941 in Wien geboren.
Bei seinem Studium, das mit dem Dr.phil. abschloss, hat er gelernt, sich selbst und die Bedeutungen der Worte in Frage zu stellen.
Von Kindheit an hat es ihn immer fasziniert, zu schreiben.
Er lebt in der Umgebung von Wien, hat aber auch acht Jahre in der Schweiz zugebracht.
Als er im Jahr 1991 50 Jahre alt wurde, hat ihm eine alte Freundin der Familie ein leeres Notizbuch geschenkt und im Begleitbrief geschrieben: „Mögest Du Deine derzeitige Schaffenskraft weiterhin behalten und halte alle Deine Gedanken fest!“
Das war der Beginn seiner literarischen Tagebücher. Bis heute sind es 28 an der Zahl. Er hat dort vor allem Lyrik eingetragen, aber auch Prosa, Biografisches und Zitate. Der Inhalt des Buches „Glücklich in Petrití“ ist Teil des Tagebuchs Nr. 28.
Informationen über seine anderen Veröffentlichungen findet man auf seiner Website www.wernerkrotz.net.
