and the ‘made in china’ umbrella was not much of a protection. and where are my rubber boots when i need them? still, it was hot and humid. it seemed like the whole city chose to visit moma because of the showers, next time i will go when it is sunny.

apparently,in new york the squirrels are considered rats with a fancy tail. and they won’t mind posing for you. my favorites so far was walking the stairs of the chelsea hotel, which is like wandering a maze full of art and old memories, a huge store for baking on the west 23rd street, and my sisters of course. *even though they didn’t stick to the pictures yet* and another favorite, which has nothing to do with new york, is the beautiful gift they brought me from textilspanieln. elisabeth i agree with you, actually everything is quite fine…
for the rest, weird dreams, early waking hours and the zombie thing all over again. tonight, we premiere at the kitchen. have a good one!

goodmorning new york. goodmorning world. i had the scariest flight in a long time, with turbulence, lightning and thunders. the plane lifting in the air just to drop down with a choir of shocked voices from the passengers.it went on like that for about an hour. i had so much adrenaline after that, it took me two whiskeys and a long playlist to come back to myself. then i was utterly happy to still be alive. and enjoyed every single moment of it. and here i am in new york. with a jetlag and a bed which is shorter than me by ten cm’s, plus on a diagonal. but oh so alive.

brooklyn bridge in 2008. i was in new york to dance but with another group, in a completely different context. and at that time my camera just broke down and i did the whole trip with a disposable camera. times change. i look forward to exploring the streets, getting lost, dancing, dancing, dancing, and hanging with these two!

leaving sydney for new york. spring for autumn. and travelling back in time. not even trying to comprehend were i am in all of that. sydney has been alot of fun. we even managed to squeeze some rainforest into the schedule. well worth it… unfortunately no kangaroos spotted. today, despite pains and tiredness i will give the opera house all what i have. i doubt i will be back anytime soon.

another session of blues and greens. we jumped to bondi beach before the performance. the sea gives the greatest perspective. we are small after all. i keep finding signs, and i dream of that camper that i will drive from one place to another. perhaps this is a call for my drivers license more than anything?
tonight will be our third performance in the opera house, tomorrow a day of rest and adventure, then two more shows to go and we head of to new york… have a lovely day!

i am wearing sneakers for the first time since…the winter. my feet are closed in again. it is a lovely, but chilly spring weather going on over here. the two pairs of feet above however, belong to my friends that i know from sweden, who live in melbourne. one of the best things with touring is when you have the opportunity to meet up with friends you never see otherwise. the ultimate combination of business and pleasure. and so far sydney has been way more pleasures than business. walking, looking, coffee-drinking, talking, walking, eating, photographing, walking, zombie\ing, sleeping, walking some more. but tonight we premiere. and i still feel like my body got lost somewhere between london and hongkong.
haven’t yet found a good place to internet, and i miss popping in to read your blogs. but i will do some catching up as soon as i can. love and kiss from sydney!
p.s this song is a perfect song for autumn days, the clip makes me want to ride a bike…
not only did we get major lost trying to find the opera house (even though you can pretty much see it from everywhere) but also you definitely get lost inside the building. it is HUGE! even the people that work in the building and want to help you find your way get lost. so if you never hear from me again, it might mean i am lost in the sydney opera house. wandering endlessly the stairs with other performers who got lost during the years.

we made it. all the way to australia, sydney. how exactly did that happen? i am not sure. but i read ‘a wild sheep chase’ from the beginning to the end, slept for eight hours sitting straight in my chair with only my head moving from right to left and dreamt many dreams, there above the clouds. and now we are fighting the jetlag, a whole day of walking the streets of sydney like zombies with the weirdest little things happening to us. and i keep finding messages in the street signs, ready to be deciphered.

except of the bunch in sweden, which i saw pretty recently. and a few other people of course. there are many people that are constantly too far away. and i wonder if we ever will live closer? asking that question i realize it is mostly in my hands, since i doubt any of you would be that crazy to move to israel. fair enough.
you are the dearest skeleton of my closet. whether you read this or not. loads of love to you all.
