life consists of so many moments. i photographed 500+ moments from this weekends wedding to edit and organize sometime soon, when i find the right moment for it. i have a bunch of thoughts and feelings to digest, based on different moments in germany. i want a moment to taste the snow and a moment of being quiet in the morning. and now a moment to drink a glass of wine.

we are no longer two while spending time but three. it is really touching to see your friend who you’ve shared so much with being a mother. different, but it feels like the most natural change in the world. and he is happy, sweet, soft and he smells delicious!
the german adventure ended and i headed further north. 2012 has not been dull for a moment. even at nighttime i have the most thrilling, weird dreams. that’s what i mean by lalaland by the way: the land of dreams, the land of our unconscious.

berlin is already far away, i have slept in three different beds *and surfed some couches*, cuddled my friends little son and met new friendly people since then. i hardly had time to photograph and my cable is lost in my mobile home, the suitcase. so i treat you with some leftover berlin memories, just to let you know that i did not forget you. and now i am entering lalaland. any second now.

what a city. so much history. lots of energy. colors. pink splashes in between many different shades of gray. it snowed today. wet and heavy flakes. and we had our last performance last night. i can’t sleep even though i am so very tired. my sisters are just a couple of kilometers away for a change (look at those curls) and i had the great opportunity to meet ariane (pic nr 3, i blame the giggles for the fuzzy photos) in real life. this lady has the most warming laughter and it was so much fun to meet. making real life friends through blogging does make this whole cyber-space business seem more legitimate, don’t you think? gotta go, berlin is still waiting for me.

three tendencies while touring: 1. walking with the whole group often means one strong will, many different desires and much time for little action. 2. walking with the boys means all three of us are ‘flowing’ (hence no one decides), and so much laughs and jokes that i tend to forget to notice where i am. 3. walking alone means me and the camera getting lost in mainly trashy areas or areas of a very mixed population.
this week i am in love with berlin. even with the grey rain. i beg your pardon, europeans.

this week i fell in love with the sink in my friends bathroom, it must be my affection for wabi-sabi which makes me fall in love with broken sinks and floors. i also got a bottle of whiskey which tastes oh so good, and there is nothing like drinking whiskey while listening to the rain. we are waiting and hoping for snow, can you imagine?! olive trees, cactus and white, powdery snow. it is a pretty and impressive sight once it happens.
and here some great kitsch and schmaltz to listen to on rainy, wintery days while drinking whiskey. be well, stay warm!
