do you know ingeborg bachmann? this is a line from one of her poems.
time passes, flowers are growing, withering.
and i am here. reading a lot, working a LOT, preparing some readings i am doing with my friend nana spier (more to come). but i am still here. and wanted to let you know.. just in case you were wondering.
just in case.
be well, my friends.
as much as i love living in a big city like berlin, i love being in the nature.
i need to breathe the fresh air of the woods every once in a while and soothe my eyes with the lush shades of green that only nature can provide.
two weeks ago i went back home to my parents’ as it was daddy’s 70th birthday and i took some time to walk and inhale.
and those autumn flowers. big love.
so, come with me as i travel back in my memory. to my journey. and to my roots.
homeward bound >>>>>>>>
nature called >>>>>>>>
there’s a very special violet that only grows in the area where i come from cause parts of the ground are leaded there. that’s why the violets are yellow instead of purple❤ >>>>>>
home is where the heart is >>>>>>>>
the roses in daddy’s garden (he’s very proud of his garden) >>>>>>>>
the whole family gathered for daddy’s birthday and we went on a day trip to a very old town called monschau where we visited a mustard museum, walked around and observed some art >>>>>>>>
i am not related to her… but i like that lady. she makes me smile >>>>>>>
that’s all for now.
be well, my friends.
it’s monday and i’m trying to fall into the new week. smoothly. with a gentle touch down.
that’s why i listen to haim. those three beautiful girls from sunny california (which i miss more and more the further autumn steps forward). i love their music and their style❤
my weekend was quite packed.
physiotherapie, meeting beautiful (neighbour) friends, strolling over the farmers market which is right next door, watching a thunder storm from my rooftop, rooting for nana at the asics 10 grand marathon which came through the berlin zoo where we stayed afterwards (well, me and my friends did. nana had to run some further, of course). then the weekend ended with a visit at berlin’s friedrichstadtpalast which is supposed to have las vegas standard shows. i’ve never been to a las vegas show. so i cannot tell, but what i enjoyed it a lot. also i probably would never have gone by myself but some workmates invited me and why not. (fun fact: one of the work mates, is the german voice of bugs bunny).
so here’s my weekend in pictures.
i wish you all a great fall, sail, glide into the new week.
be well x
rise and shine early and
watch the sun rise and shine.
stand on the rooftop of your house
with a coffee mug in your hand and…
the wild geese above your head that say
***goodbye till next year***
(can you see them?)
inhale and exhale. cause the wild geese made you happy and sad at the same time…
for a run.
in your favourite park.
surprise a friend with some sex toys.
in case you’re in berlin and you dig some goodies like this too, go here.
and later on.
have a nice bubble bath.
lay down and feel like a postcard that has travelled
around the world
and is now being with
who couldn’t await to hold it in his hands.
be well, friends*
is there anything more soothing than the sea breeze? the wind playing with your hair. salt tingling on your skin. seagulls. vastness. aaahhh!
i don’t think so there’s anyithing more soothing and comforting. except for maybe my mum making me a cup of warm milk with candied sugar. but mum wasn’t there, so marco and me drove all the way up north to the island rügen in the baltic sea.
and once you’re on your way, you don’t need anything but a good friend, a chilled playlist (which your friend LOVES to sing along to, although he knows hardly any of the songs), a fantastic book and a nice hotel right by the sea with spa and sauna (in case you want to ask me AGAIN: yes, us germans go into the sauna NAKED and no, there’s nothing sexual about it).
so let me take you on my weekend trip, listen to my playlist and hear the seagull’s cry.
