queen of colors


Last week had everything it promised to have and actually this Queen of Colors was meant to be filled with good food, presents from Greece and reconnecting with old friends. And then, I've got one of these phonecalls, one of the sort you can't even bare to watch in a movie. My beloved grandmother, who is 94 years of age and is one of the most important people in my life, fell badly and things were looking really terrible. We actually prepared ourselfs to say goodbye.

Since this morning though, things are looking much brighter again. All over sudden and totally unexpected. I know she is a very strong woman, who has been through so much in her life, the only thing to do right now, is hoping for the best. The best for her. Großmütterchen, I love you.

minted happy


One image only for this Saturday. One that sums it up perfectly. It has been a good one. Like yesterday, that has been equally great. And the most pleasant part of it, I have finally written a bunch of emails to contact some really important people about Berlin.Bites. These nasty, little emails had been lingering on my to-do-lists for a while already; gotten transfered from week to week to week, and I just couldn't put my finger on why that has been the case.Today I've decided it might just not be worth to get behind any parcticular reasons, but to get over with the writing and to send the stuff out. More than a liter of tea and a complete bar of minted chocolate later and I am finished. Check. Sometimes nothing helps better, but to stop thinking. And to give in to any ridiculous seasonal addiction and to start typing. How marvelous this feels right now. Have a happy Saturday night. I might just have another tiny bit of that chocolate. A really tiny one. Promised.

little things thursday


Some days are not for breakthroughs or for moving big piles; one simply has to follow those lists, take ones vitamins, have more than three mugs of coffee and smile at the first blooming of Spring. Even when it happened inside the studio, the weather outside gave Berlin a pleasant idea of more to come. Some days are so ordinary, I'll get a little bit nervous and feel unsettled, hoping for big changes and new doors to open. So ordinary, I will tend to become a little hysterical and grumpy (sorry, husband!). And the again, maybe it is those days, some of them in a neat row, which will actually become the actual breakthrough or a huge mountain moved in the future. That is, why I will try to behave myself a little, talk to that old contender Patience and concentrate on what is right in front of me.

Oh, I forgot, there is something so not ordinary happening today. Happy New Year of the wooden goat, dears. Let's hope it will a bit more gentle with us, than that wild and crazy horse.

queen of colors


Last week's images might not look overly spectacular, some are even a bit messy, but they were for a good cause. The moments that led to them, where all very special and blissful. We did a lot of cleaning and throwing out, which feels so, so good. And the wonderful side effect of doing so, you will find precious things, reminding you of what is really important to you. For the first time in weeks, we have managed to spent a Sunday far away from our computers, but with extensive paper reading, a long walk in the woods and the visit of a very special art exhibition (For the ones in Berlin, you should definitely give Sonntag a try. It is a series of one day shows, always in the atmosphere of a private home, including the favourite cake of the artist. We liked it a lot!). So this Queen of Colors is a very Blue one. Blue as in happy.

For the next days, I am looking forward to quite a dose of visitors. And to long hours in the studio, continuing with the work on three projects. Be excited; about them. And about your very own upcoming week.
