Never Liked Flowers…

…until I met him.

I also never thought I could choose to live without internet for two weeks – until he asked me to. I am going on a vacation – a real vacation for the next two weeks starting today. No internet, no smartphone – just books and my running clothes. How about that? Where to? Corsica. Croissants for breakfast, vine and cheese for lunch , fresh fish  with local herbs on the grill for dinner and Orangina all day.

I will miss the big city maybe for a day or two but I am overwhelmed by the thought of being in France with him again.



Train Talk

Berlin’s U-Bahn is a great place to relax with music in my ears or it get’s me aggressive because someone else pushes me or smells the way that people only seem to smell in the underground. My point right here: the experience is always an emotional rollercoaster – so it was this Tuesday.

On my left:
A man deeply concentrating on his book

On my right:
Two women round about 65 years old.

I am watching him because:

What else can you do in the U-Bahn?

I am trying to block out their very energetic voices

whilst keeping my seat next to these oversized ladies.

I realize he is reading Sophie’s Choice.

I do remember the story – who wouldn’t.

Extremes created by the evil in humanity

Loud voices from the right are blending over my thoughts

and pull them right back  into my seat next to these airy ladies.

“All those years and he never told me he loves me – now he wrote it in a letter”.

Can you believe it?

They were giggling like teenagers having GIRL TALK right next to me.

Only now do I realize how beautiful they are

and how perfectly their make-up was applied.

I was so happy to have shared this sweet moment of joy with them for a while.

The extremes of humanity on my Tuesday morning: Cruelty & Love

Nice wedding inspired mood video made for The Lane.

I like this because to me, it resembles the pure essence of the wedding character: just two people with an eternal promise towards each other – no one else. No kitsch, no show for anyone else – no bullshit.

I know the runner's going to tell you
There ain't no cowboy in my hair
So now he's buried by the daisies
So I could stay the tallest man in your eyes, babe
I sense a spy up in the chimney
From all the evidence I've burned
I guess he'll read it in the smoke now
And soon to ashes I'll return
I know the spy is going to tell you
It's not my flag up in the pole
So now he's buried by the lilies
So I could stay forever more in your eyes, babe
So now we're dancing through the garden
And what a garden I have made
And now that death will grow my jasmine
I find it soothing I'm afraid
Now there is no need for suspicion
There ain't no frog kissing your hand
I won't be lying when I tell you
That I'm a gardner I'm a man
In your eyes babe

Camera Eye: Sloan Photographers

Posted in Uncategorized by strytllng on February 8, 2010

I have come upon these photos during my daily internet reads. They caught my eye immediately. Not only is the couple in this setting absolutely adorable but I like how the Photographers have managed to capture their portrait in a series of retro-romantic pictures. The clothes are matching the setting accessories, the light is perfect and the coloration fits the frame. Well done!
