Have a wonderful weekend!

this photo made me happy this week...I like the idea of art being messy

I'm coming home...I am about to leave the house in order to fly home over the holidays. I am looking forward to seeing my man, my Birdy, my friends and family so very much and wish you all a wonderful weekend!

Ich komme nach Hause...in wenigen Stunden geht mein Flug nach Deutschland, wo ich die Feiertage und Silvester verbringen werde. Ich freue mich so so sehr, meinen Freund, Birdy, meine Freunde und meine Familie zu sehen und wünsche allen ein wundervolles Wochenende!

inspiration lately!

The beauty of mononucleosis is, that you have tons of time (= the couple of hours a day you're not sleeping) to finally read all your bookmarked articles, watch movies you always wanted to watch, and generally be inspired by everything the internet has to offer...so, here is parts of what I did during the last weeks... now that I'm somewhat healthy again, I reentered the real world though, so no worries.

Das Schöne an pfeifferischem Drüsenfieber ist, dass man endlich Zeit hat ( = die paar Stunden am Tag, die man nicht schläft) all die Artikel zu lesen, Film zu sehen...für die man sonst keine Zeit hat. Ich bin froh, wieder einigermaßen gesund zu sein und das Haus verlassen zu können, aber die letzten paar Wochen konnte ich damit verbringen mich von allem inspirieren zu lassen, was das Internet zu bieten hat.

I find these statues stunning- does anybody know where they are?

when did "book trailers" become a thing? I don't know but definitely enjoyed this one:

have a wonderful weekend!

- Pablo Neruda -

If you forget me

I want you to know one thing.
You know how this is:
If I look at the crystal moon,
at the red branch of the slow autumn at my window,
If I touch near the fire
the impalpable ash or the wrinkled body of the log,
everything carries me to you,
as if everything that exists,
aromas, light, metals,
were little boats
that sail towards those isles of yours
that wait for me.
Well, now, if little by little you stop loving me
I shall stop loving you, little by little.

If suddenly you forget me
do not look for me,
for shall already have forgotten you.
If you think it long and mad,
the wind of banners that passes through my life,
and you decide to leave me at the shore of the heart
where I have roots,
remember that on that day,
at that hours,
I shall lift my arms
and my roots will set off to seek another land.

But if each day, each hour,
you feel that you are destined for me
with implacable sweetness,
if each day a flower climbs up to your lips to seek me,
ah my love,
ah my own,
in me all that fire is repeated,
in me nothing is extinguished or forgotten,
my love feeds on your love, beloved,
and as long as you live, it will be in your arms
without leaving mine.
                                                                     - Pablo Neruda -

What Birdy did recently - images from Munich

A funny sheep that waved with its paw .. I quickly fall in love!

Recently I visited a good old friend, who lives right in Munich right now.. I have never been there before and was pretty excited to see the city, meet new people and get a hint of southern german culture... a little more than just bear and sausages - the number of museums you can find there is incredible, even though I needed a couple of good arguments to be allowed to see one! But still, thanks for the wonderful weekend! - most of the pics you find in this post are from an organic festival  in Munich... Everything was for hippies and I love it!

Letztes Wochenende wagte ich die lange Reise in den Süden Deutschlands... Ein sehr guter, alter Freund von mir lebt zur Zeit in München und scheint jeden Moment zu genießen. Da München mir bist jetzt verborgen blieb, habe ich ihm einen Besuch abgestattet - festgestellt habe ich, dass München nicht nur Bier und Würstchen ist... und auch wenn es nebeliger war als erwartet, hat die Stadt mich begeistert... die Anzahl an Museen ist beeindruckend, auch wenn ich einige sehr gute Argumente brauchte, um immerhin eins besichtigen zu können! Trotzdem, danke für ein sehr schönes Wochenende! Die meisten Bilde, die heir zu sehen sind, stammen von einem Bio-Festival in München... es war ein Nachmittag, der mein Hippie Herz höher schlagen ließ!


here you could drink the magic potion from Asteriy and Obelix!


...and here I am, drinking some nice and warm potion with Obelix!

The pretties tent I have ever seen.

... never forget, pigs and all kind of animals have there rights too!
