Two quotes are ringing in my head tonight:
- “I am not, who I think I am. I am not, who you think I am. I am, who I think, you think I am.”
- “Without communication, there is no relationship. Without respect, there is no love. Without trust, there’s no reason to continue.”
I ended up sorting some old photos tonight. I found long forgotten memories, pictures of great friends that are still close to my heart, some friends who have drifted away.
I was thinking about all the illusions we build based on our expectations, experiences, hopes. Sometimes, the fairytale we are telling ourselves is flattering. Sometimes it’s sad.
I want to keep my curiosity and the ability to be genuinely enthusiastic and surprised.
Fortunately, I keep finding extraordinary people, who teach me diverse lessons.
Living in the moment and accepting what is there is hard sometimes, but it’s very rewarding, too.
Nils Frahm – You
I feel like everything is falling into its perfect place lately. I know it’s been a lot of hard work and sacrifice to get here, but I feel like I’ve finally arrived. Now more and more from the good things come my way. It feels good.

Early Monday morning (Nov. 13), bright Jupiter will pass an even brighter Venus in a low but close and spectacular conjunction. The constellation will be visible from Europe. I wish there were no clouds above Berlin this dawn.
We are temporary arrangements, travelling time and space in our spaceship called Earth through the cosmos.
This temporary arrangement called “us” and “now” is pretty fascinating. We should never forget to look at the sky.

There is about a week every autumn, when Berlin’s buildings get dressed with light. Artists from around the World work on showing us messages in a few minutes, sometimes even less. Every show is a surprise, and every piece of art needs your personal interpretation.
We should put the ordinary things in new light more often.
