EDITORIAL. Wow, I never thought that it would be like this. That I would be celebrating just that - that I have managed to remain alive here in the void of the Universe. I know that only very few people read me, now and then, but I treasure it like the most precious jewel. 
The day I started I didn't know what to expect. I wasn't expecting that anyway. It was more like just a will to fly. But now I know that - little as it may seem my little treasured jewel - it makes a lot of sense to me. And I am happy for that.
I wasn't expecting either that J would surf on a kayak nor that N would play the piano! I would  have expected it more the other way around! But so is life.  So, how about a little "home made" piano for the celebration?

Wow, nunca pensé que fuera a ser así. Que estaría celebrando simplemente eso - haber conseguido sobrevivir aquí en el vacío del universo. Sé que sólo muy pocas personas me leen, a ratos, pero atesoro eso como la más preciada joya.
El día que empecé no sabía qué esperar. No esperaba nada en cualquier caso. Era más como un deseo de volar o algo así. Pero ahora sé que - poco cosa como pueda parecer mi pequeño tesoro - tiene mucho sentido para mi. Y estoy contento por ello.
Tampoco esperaba que J hiciera surf en una piragua ni que N tocara el piano! Hubiera esperado más lo contrario! Pero así es la vida. Así que, ¿qué tal un poco de piano "hecho en casa" como celebración?


  1. Thank you for the music......great view too!
    Wishing you a happy week.

  2. Bravo! Thank you for the best thing I've seen (and heard) online in weeks. You have a "homemade" prodigy on your hands. The piano is by far the hardest instrument to learn. I play but only for myself. Congratulations on 5 years of not publishing drivel.

  3. Well, happy blog anniversary!

    Thank you for stopping by my blog and commenting, which allowed me to find your blog and to take a look around. It seems we crossed paths a few times, just separated by time and a few hometown is just a two-hour drive from Würzburg. And I've been to the white sandy beaches of Anna Maria Island, just 80 miles from where I live now, in December...except it was in December 2012 (one year after you visited there).

    I will look around some more. Nice to "meet" you!

  4. A belated congratulations on your five-year mark. I celebrated mine on Bastille Day this year. Thank you for your recent comment and I wanted you to know that I was speaking of you, "a blog friend," the other day. We were talking about travel in Europe with friends who travel and I asked if they had been to San Sebastian. It is on my bucket list.

    Oh, and I have Piment d'Esplette in my kitchen.
