Long time no see…
It’s been a while since we made a sound on this blog.
A lot of shifts and changes were happening while we also adjusted to our new life as a married couple.
It might look differently from the outside, but marriage is not just a signed paper or a ring on the finger. It is also the merging of two family lines with all their history and bridging two energy fields into one family. This is not so much about the visible, spoken, audible part but rather applies to the unseen, unheard and unspoken and the becoming aware of it.
For us, Autumn is always the start of the festive season. Beginning with Kim’s birthday in September, followed by several occasions like my birthday, year circle celebrations and our wedding anniversary right through to the new year.
This year’s Autumnal Equinox was a time of clearing and cleansing for us. It was like a round-up for all the shifts and changes we have gone through, this year.
All the more important for it was for us to take some time and celebrate, as well. For Kim’s birthday in September we went for a nice dinner at our favourite vegan restaurant in Hamburg, The Leaf. For my birthday in the beginning of October we had my mum visiting for cupcakes and tea in the afternoon. But there were two more anniversaries for us, this month: My 15th year in this apartment as well as Kim’s third year here, with me.
Mid-month, we had a great opportunity to round it up and celebrate all those special days with one special event.
David Garrett was in town on October 16th and the concert took place just about a half hour walk from our home. We hesitated until two weeks or so before the concert to buy the tickets, as they are not exactly cheap. On the other hand, it was a long dream of mine to see him live and his show merges Kim’s and my interest in music just perfectly. So we looked into it, again, short before the actual event, and guess what: we found the perfect tickets for us and magically were able to get really good seats.
For those of you, who don’t know him:
David Garrett is a German violinist and kind of a Wunderkind. His mother is US-American and he studied music on the Juilliard School in New York. Born in 1980 he merges a very classical style with modern rock and pop. David also is known as the world’s fastest violinist and plays his instrument absolutely virtuosically, while still giving space to the musicians who accompany him. He also arranges and writes music. And most of all, he makes people smile where ever he goes. His shows are spectacular and involve a lot of pyrotechnics. For this concert he was accompanied by his band, the youth philharmonic of Frankfurt as well as dancers of the German tv-ballet.
We both absolutely enjoyed the concert and still do in our memories.
