A good night, listening to The Smiths

Tonight, I wrote a long entry in my journal. My first since the Faculty Center Fire of April 1, when I lost most of my books and catalogs and objects that I cherish. I also watched the finale episode of Gilmore Girls. I missed the before, as life got in the way. I am sitting... Continue Reading →

Day 8, Observing a café and death to adverbs (not quite)

https://instagram.com/p/YUdkCyFbHA/ She stepped inside, uncertain. That café has caught her eye in the past week, but it was too rushed, too quick. Now, she’s alone, with no appointments to fulfil. There were people ordering their morning coffee, and she stood for a moment, observing. The price was listed, and though most of the menu is... Continue Reading →

Day 5, A brief love letter

Wer liebe sucht, findet sie nicht. Sie überfällt uns wenn wir es am wenigsten Erwarten. Alles Liebe zu unserem Ersten Jahrestag (Georg Sand) I took a photo and I wondered what Georg Sand is trying to say to me. I knew it was in German, but I had no idea what it’s trying to say....

Day 3, Commitment and Music

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=76bSvs3OfqI I still feel the cold, dry air that freezes my lungs. The bright, white snow that blinds my eyes. The bare trees… A sense of wonder. This is my memory of Tiergarten in Berlin. I’ve written about this place several times before. I will admit that I am not over it. And I will... Continue Reading →

Snow in Berlin

(I worked on this post some time ago. It went to my blog folder and I wasn't able to work on it since then. Now, it's St. Patricks's Day, the day I arrived in Berlin two years ago. Time goes by so fast, I still feel like I was just there. It was one of... Continue Reading →

Getting the domain back

I finally got my domain back. I had some financial and practical restrictions when I was due to renew my domain. When I can finally do so, I am being charged a lot in terms of penalty. As I do not have a budget for that, I let it go, hoping that it will be... Continue Reading →

Going Back

I’ve been out of the writing and blogging loop for quite some time. There were highs and lows and everything in between. One thing’s for sure, I felt stuck. I simply couldn’t write. Then I decided to just not to take it too hard and take life as it comes. And it did come. Maybe... Continue Reading →

Walking the Wall, Looking Back and Forward

My first day in Berlin, I wanted to find the East Side Gallery, a kilometer or so of what is left of the former Berlin Wall. It was March 17, 2013, St. Patrick's Day, and David Hasselhoff was supposed to be here in a protest against the destruction of the Berlin Wall. A and I... Continue Reading →

Break of Spring, Remembering Gaudi

La Sagrada Familia led me to Barcelona. As I would later learn, there is a whole world out there to discover. Its a comparatively small city, but is full of culture and character. I got there at the break of spring and La Sagrada Familia is the first structure I went to discover. The short... Continue Reading →
