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.

 

back to the roots.

20 Oct

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 exhale.

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 >>>>>>>>

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❤ >>>>>>

be well, my friends.

falling into the new week.

14 Oct

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.

with…

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

ingredients for a good day.

25 Sep

rise and shine early and

watch the sun rise and shine.

Bild

stand on the rooftop of your house

with a coffee mug in your hand and…

hear…

the wild geese above your head that say

***goodbye till next year***

(can you see them?)

Bild

inhale and exhale. cause the wild geese made you happy and sad at the same time…

….

inhale

exhale.

go

for a run.

in your favourite park.

Bild

Bild

surprise a friend with some sex toys.

Bild

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

this person

who couldn’t await to hold it in his hands.

Bild

be well, friends*

come away with me.

23 Sep

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.

be sure to wear some flowers in your hair. (updated)

11 Sep

“earth laughs in flowers”, ralph waldo emerson said.

and it is true, i think. i grew up with them in my grandparents tremendously huge garden (of course, it looked much huger to me because i was so little. but it was big anyways)

my grandma loved flowers and she taught me all the names. i think, i could say “dahlia” before i said “mama”. well, that’s a slight exaggeration, i guess. but that’s what it feels like. it feels like flowers have always been there. that my path through life has been lined by flowers ever since grandma took me on her wrinkly dry hand and showed me her garden.

so now i am sitting here. i’m 33. i became an actress. but i always wanted to grow and sell flowers.

who knows…. maybe i’ll get back to that one day.

this post is dedicated to them flowers and their beauty and perfection.

which is your favourite flowers, peeps?❤

the great thing about blogging is that you can update posts. my dear riccci has asked me to show a photo of me when i was little and here we go. that was the summer before i started to go to school in spain where my aunt lives. between a beautiful bougainvillea. a plant that will always resemble summer on the canary  islands to me❤
