for you, whom i value.

during every morning yoga and-or morning tea, each day anew, I assess my truth(s). I precisely question how i live, who I live with. And I wonder why. Thereby I dont live by habit, but consciously take decisions about the how & who. about what stays and what goes. about what is true and what isnt. about what matters. about who matters. about who is trustworthy. for this moment. again and again interrogating meaning & value. So when I say I love you, it’s never because I’m used to our friendship. Every day you’re chosen. And I believe this is what fills life. Every day i decide what and who makes me grow. Every day you are a fascinating & inspiring element I want to be in touch with and reach out for. Everyday I aim to live. Everyday i try to live







cold as a rat tail
and whatever you do you gotta fail
sliding on the bright yellow banana peel
getting caught in a big red ferry wheel

warm as a cat’s paw
and while the sun turns pale’n’raw
I turn on your mind and
……….on my heel
trapped in the stormy glow, we feel
feathery touches on our starving winter skin.

EXCITEMENT! (on my side of the web at least.) Since 3 weeks, I’ve been wondering how to handle all this awesomeness that comes across on the street here in cologne. Eventually, my clever mind figured out a wonderful way everyone benefits. People because their appearance will be widely appreciated, dear followers & dear by-lookers because they have the fortunate opportunity to become beauty spies in the Colo house and finally creepy me because because.

so what it is? #FOFRI. FOLLY FRIDAY.
two weeks. as much insta captures as possible of unique people who are running into me or who I’m running into. and here, the top 3 most-hearted COLOGNE STREETSYLES.

sounds like a plan doesnt it? yeah, you’re already all over it :) (like this is you) So let’s get started!

malta two – tags

whenever i go to a city, i end up with a camera storage half filled by what is edearingly referred to as “crap” by my relatives: pictures of graffiti, ripped stickers, or any other signs of creative outburst and/or proof of someone’s “i’ve-been-here-and-damn-this-is-my-spot-this-is-my-message”.

here a (small) selection ;)

cold rain. sweeping the floors, the candles, the words. leaving but naked longing on the skin.


back from 2weeks surfing guys! – intensity no scale could mesure.


> minds drifting off whenever they try to grasp late reality. you’re the rip drawing me into your vast fathomless sea. no more steady ground under the feet, we’re walking paths made of water&light now. deep lightnings strolling over my body. whispers&waves.
