My little brother turned 18 today. Not so little anymore!

Monday, 28 January 2013


This weekend, there was a tiny Dutch adventure full of love, and although there was some sadness in my heart while the train drove me back to Hamburg (leaving friends behind again is never so much fun), the beautiful harbour-view made it all good again.

Meeres Stille, Goethe
Tiefe Stille herrscht im Wasser,
ohne Regung ruht das Meer,
und bekümmert sieht der Schiffer
glatte Flächen ringsumher.
Keine Luft von keiner Seite!
Todesstille fürchterlich!
In der ungeheuren Weite
reget keine Welle sich.

Erinnerung von Goethe
Willst du immer weiter schweifen?
Sieh, das Gute liegt so nah. 
Lerne nur das Glück ergreifen,
denn das Glück ist immer da.     

Some wise words from our glowing friend Goethe. It is said that Germans like to set things on fire. I must say it does not surprise me much. I like having fires as well in these cold days. Fake fires on the monitor and always some candles. The only problem is that I have encountered many bugsuicides these days. The ladybugs play around my desk for a night and then let themselves fall in the candle. They always seem to do it right after I started caring for them..

Today is Blue Monday, which is said to be the most depressing day of the year. I hope you dont really feel depressed and I'm trying not to burn too many candles today incase the ladybugs feel particulary suicidal today.
What is kind of funny is that it is blue monday and as I've been kindly told, this blogpost is some kind of birthdaypost because it is number 365 (yeah the only connection here is the word blue so it is not really funny, but still).

Now in other news. WE HAVE A WINNER! For the give-away. First of all thank you all so much for the kind words and interest. Because I was so happy about this, I decided to pick two other winners who will receive some kind of postcard - minipackage as well (like a secondprize of sorts).

So I made a video which you can see here so you see I did it honestly and listen to Bob Dylan.

The winner is.....
Phara! (who(s blog) I really like!)

And the other two are Saara and Molly!
I will email you all for adresses and stuff and then you can expect some magic in your mailboxes soon.

For the others; I am always happy to have new penpal-packagefriends, so...........

This was a lot of talking. Probably you only read this last sentence or nothing at all, so it was kind of like talking to myself. In any other condition one would say I am crazy, but the internet makes weird things always seem normal.

Hamburg ist immer noch megakalt & megageil (megakühl?)
Waiting with the family for photos to develop and waiting inside for the cold and the snow to go away and bring me light and bearable temperatures again. bitte bitte vielen dank.
On the plusside: I wear my Russiancoat a lot and combined with the cold and the greyness of the city, I feel like I'm living in a completely different era.

Wow thanks for all the nice reactions on the last post! I'll put the deadline for this sunday, so you can still comment and be in it to win it. (HA).

These days I've been doing a lot of reading (dreaming) and drawing (practicing) and working (learning) and also some obsessing over amazing ladies like Marina and Patti

Hello dearest readers,

So my blog got 222 followers and I know this may not be so much in the world of blogging and it doesnt matter, but I think its nice and I like the number. so first of all thank you for following me. Although that may be a weird thing to thank someone for..
ANYWAY. I always like it when people do these give-awaythings and I always think I should do that too someday and this seems a good occassion. I was thinking to make a little package for the winner with some treasures, maybe some selfmade books or drawings or something, and of course, some prints of photos (of your choice.. although I only have the negatives of the past 2 months or so here).. Well.. Just a little surprise..

I am not so sure if anyone would be interested, but if you are, all you have to do is leave a comment here (dont forget to leave your web or email adress so i can contact you), and then I will pick a random winner within the next weeks.


Have a good week!
With love,
