Hugs go to Matt and Arne who were my biggest muses in those months.
And thanks to the entire Berlin family.


This summer.

No other I remember has ever been as
vibrant and brisk with life. And there is
hardly any better place to experience a
summer than the glorious city of Berlin.

There`s the balmy evening air over the
Landwehrkanal, bike rides through alleys
and parks. There are breakfasts among
neighbors under chestnut trees and talks
between strangers on trains through the
country. There are sleepless work nights
and relaxed bar evenings, won and
wasted time.

You`ll take naps in the park between
long work shifts and after journeys, sing
lullabies to friends who are in pain and fall
asleep with their hand clung to yours, you`ll
rediscover and appreciate old and find
new ones and for the first time feel truly
embedded and held by that increasingly
dense net of people around you. You
have nothing left to hide and everything
revealed will be in good hands.
And you start writing songs not for
yourself but others, as you learn that they
can be not only diaries but medicine, if
applied with care to the right ears in
good moments.

There is a new magic to friendships, to
music, to life. There`s a sense of new
beginnings, of truly being at home. And
if there weren`t all those little proves of
your existence prior to this date you`d
swear you just had been invented. This
very summer. In Berlin.

Berlin, summer 2012
