the garden






















































































things are out of control
in the tiny dark garden,
or
nature is in control
depending how one
looks at it.
intervention is required.
miss m

grass.

walls












































time to get back to work,
the studio needs a
major tidy up.
there was some
painting of rooms
going on
in my absence
(hooray, finally)
but the studio
became a storage
area.
some wall images
from the city.

eating well


























































the first few days home
were spent being
under the weather,
however,
drinking flowering teas
enjoying tomato cucumber
gazpacho with home baked
buns,
indulging in a hearty omelette
filled with leftover pizza toppings
and a restorative cappuccino,
i am up to speed
ready to tackle reality.
wishing everyone a good week
ahead.

a few more






























































a few more random photos,
i became quite attached
to the tv tower
and enjoyed seeing it from near
and afar.
i came upon this statue reaching
for it on a rainy afternoon.
inspiring murals remain
on buildings in the eastern
part of the city.
the second shop window
was intriguing, possibly
advertising a fortune teller.

see and do.
arriving home

quiche, provided by
the guest cook.

to berlin.
