sunny sanny

yesterday was such a sunny day and i enjoyed my secret journey very much  (if you cant remember about my secret journey read the post of the day before.!)...

... to make sure that today will be another sunny day i builded a "Teru Teru Bozu".

“Teru Teru Bozu” is a lovely doll made of white cloth or a tissue. In japan - kids and adults make it when they wish for a sunny next day because they have a school trip or something else lovely and wonderful planned. 

Important the "Teru Teru Bozu" is always display in the window.

"Teru" means: Sunny.
"Bozu" means: Little boy 

Sunny sunny little boy.! lets see if you worked.

one day....

one day i would like to buy for me and my future family a house in the countryside . 
near a river or a lake. with lots of nice plants around... and many puff balls. so i can show the kids how the explode when you touch them. that would be lovely...!
i would organize excusions with the whole family to invented fantasy worlds in the forest.
baking lovely berry cakes and eating them with ice cream while playing nice music in the radio. 
dancing madly until late at night and reading stories to one another in self builded blanket tents. 
going on insect safaris and going on funghi forays. befriending all the animals in the grass, forest and lake near the house. doing costume parties with great themes...
organizing tea parties in huge trees and all of that... imagine. 

oh i cant wait... 

one day.!

a perfect weekend is a nice happening we easily forget to value sometimes.!
so its nice to remind me how wonderful this one was.!

a wonderful weekend with

- reading my favourite books by john burningham

i,  in particular like "Aldo" - its about a very very lucky girl who has a special friend called "aldo" -
not just a normal friend:
a wonderful rabbit friend
a secret friend who always comes when things go bad or when you feel lonely.

over the past month, my aldo was enrique.... but he is not a rabbit nor is he a secret. he is just a friend who makes me also a very very lucky boy.

- late night cinema shows until 3 in the morning ( but dont forget to dress warm.!) and get yourself a good amount of coffee or cola so you can take now and then a quick sip during the film.

- meeting up with my friends ana and sebastian and going on a fungi foray! dont forget to wear good boots to take you trough the wild nature of england.

in my pockets i took my loved little wooden knife which i bought in france earlier this year. i like to cut with that knife
....and to carry the knife in my pocket makes me feel very safe.

- riding with your bike trough town and if you ride your bike try out to make sounds while driving. it makes more fun believe me.
when i drive down hills a bridge and if i feel no-one can listen i make sounds such as ...

- many dinners and lunch´s with nice friends and future friends such as diego. with whom i ate oven baked mashed potato´s and drank a apple juice.

diego makes nice work such as following.

(if you want to see more of his work check STUDIO FANTASTICO.COM )

- and how nice is a weekend if your book finally goes into print.! it will be in the stores 30/11.!

It Goes Without Saying

recent discovery:

i developed the habit of talking to myself when i am alone 
i start to talk about different things.
a conversation with an imaginary second me who does not reply.
  someone who just silently listen to all i have to say. 

today i was telling me something about "dance" and then i had to think about following:

my sister still makes fun of my endless attempts of dancing german expressionistic dance in our rustically living room. 

a few weeks ago dance umbrella started in london and with its start i though i should give my dance wish another try. 

and so... i started taking contemporary dance classes.
 i did not expected contemporary dance to be so strict and my class to be so over serious. 
but listen... dancing... its quite wonderful. 

time passes different if you dance 
and its nice to know that 
at the eye of the storm stands the body...

the road is life

i had nothing to offer anybody except my own confusion
our battered suitcases were piled on the sidewalk again
we had longer ways to go but no matter,
the road is life
