This is my niece Alina.

This is my niece Alina.

My youngest niece Alina just recorded her first demo CD in Cologne, Germany. She’s got a wonderful voice and I recommend you listen to her cover of Rihanna’s “Stay” below. She also created  the graphics for her little YouTube video.

I played this to a few people here in the UK and everybody commented on the fact that her English is virtually accent free!

Happy Birthday, Mark! February 13, 2013

Sorry, the blue theme is a bit cliché...

Sorry, the blue theme is a bit cliché…

As you are in Madrid on your birthday morning, here your virtual birthday table: balloons, presents, cake, candles and all. Happy, happy birthday, my beloved.

Here I opened your card for you… and you can read all of it when you are home tomorrow.

Sorry for revealing our term of endearment...

Sorry for revealing so publicly our term of endearment…

Sorry, this could also be a Easter card...

Sorry, this could also be a Easter card…

Sorry for revealing so publicly our song...

Sorry for revealing so publicly “our” song…

And here the tag lines for you present…

Because you view things differently.
Because there is hilarity and love where the two of you are.
Because you married a hipster Tscherman woman who thinks that some thing are not funny, but they are still funny.
Because it is about the “I” towards the “Thou”.
Because there may be some more philosophical devices to explore.
Because you like sounds.
Because sound needs context.
Because you want to play with sound.
Because you want to play with a different sound.
Because you need to relax.
Because things are sweet.
Because you need some trousers.
Because a nice shirt never goes amiss.

This makes all sense once you opened them… I hope.

Have much, much success with your project today and I look so much forward to seeing you tomorrow!

With love, Astrid

Sorry for so publicly revealing your age...

…you just have to blow them out now…

Except of course my husband’s: www.dailyimprovisation.blogspot.com

But some questions. How does he do it? How often did he listen to this piece of music to be able to anticipate what is to come? In any case, it gives me a lot of joy to watch his musicality and joy in performing.

Images and sounds can illustrate the fact there is nothing wrong, that there is no problem. Important moments.

August, on the beach at St. Anne’s with my family… one of these moments. Sitting on the sofa with my laptop another one.


There are moments when you realise that there is nothing, not a thing, wrong in this Universe. Below my husbands improvisation from today.
