The Huge Wheel of Time

Mill wheel made of wood at the Krabat-Mühle in Saxony, Germany

Krabat-Mühle, Germany, 2015

Seeing the wheels they had back them in the mills, it is understandable how humans came to the myth of the Time or the Fate having such a huge wheel spinning the threads of our lives and history on it. This wheel is part of the mill in Schwarzkollm, a little village in Saxony in Germany. Familiar or not with the fantasy novel by Otfried Preußler – Krabat – and the novel “Die schwarze Mühle“ by Jurij Brězan, this mill is said to be the place where all those described in the books took place. It is now a touristic attraction and there are still works done to develop the place even more.
