I live by the location of the former Berlin Wall but today, while I exploring my new office neighborhood at lunch, I found this: the Berlin Wall medieval edition.

In the US we say “life’s not a bowl of cherries” but in Germany it’s “Das Leben ist kein Ponyhof” - life’s not a pony farm. However, on Saturday I came close when I had lunch at a restaurant next to a pony farm! Just look at this face 🐴💕

The far-right AfD has been gaining ground in Germany, but the news that their leaders took part in a secret conference on the “remigration” of foreigners has sparked enormous protests. The video from Reuters gives a sense of the scale. We were in Berlin!

It looks like we went to Paris, but we didn’t #leave Berlin!

This structure is the “Funkturm” - the broadcasting tower. When my mom came to visit, my German husband proceeded to tell her that it was the “funky tower.”

I tend to be high-strung and once during a meditation session I had a vision of myself as a giant jellyfish floating through the universe. I adopted the jellyfish as my symbol and it reminds me to be #calm 🪼

I’ve never been on a cruise and I’ll probably never go on a cruise - and David Foster Wallace’s essay “A Supposedly Fun Thing I’ll Never Do Again” is part of the reason why. Does that count?

I met my husband at a local restaurant for dinner last night. For a moment I was surprised that they already had their St. Patrick’s Day decorations up. Then I realized that here in Germany St. Paddy’s is not much of a thing (but lucky clovers are popular symbols on New Year’s Eve 😂) D’oh!

Hello cocktail fans! Each year we host a Christmas cocktail party on Dec 23. I make a poster to encourage guests to mix their own drinks (although most still don’t!) Maybe someone out there would like to try one of these tasty libations 🍸🍹🥂✨

Pigs are considered good luck in Germany, so it’s no surprise that they pop up on New Year’s Eve 🐷 However, wishing a happy new year before the new year actually arrives brings bad luck and is verboten 😱 Instead, you wish people a “guten Rutsch” - a good slide!

Friends brought a big package of crispy Sardinian pane carasau to our party and we had lots left over. So tonight my husband layered some with tomato sauce and cheese to make yummy pane frattau. Poached eggs are the cherry on top 😋 When life gives you pane carasau, make pane frattau!

Back in our old apartment we once dropped a pat of butter behind the radiator. This seems to work on a similar principle…

There's a disturbing racist misogynist trend, primarily among white men, that needs to fuck all the way off with their abusive rants about what women should and shouldn't do. It's not hard to overstate how gross, repellent, and ignorant you sound. Stop it now, men!

Today was the shortest day of the year - here in Berlin the sun rose at 8:15 and set at 15:54 - that’s just 7 hours and 39 minutes of daylight! While I know many people dislike the dark time of year, I enjoy it.

I’m convinced that my love of languages was part of my childhood obsession with Christmas carols. The unusual English words were (and are) so cool! Even better was singing songs in French, German, or even Latin (hello, Adeste Fideles ✨)

Fellow word nerds, what are your thoughts?

“Mama Liked the Roses”
“Peace in the Valley”
“The Bells of St. Mary’s”
“Oh Happy Day”
“God Bless the Child”

What do these songs have in common? They appear on one of my Christmas records although they are NOT CHRISTMAS SONGS! With so much holiday music out there - why? I am officially irked!

Seeing (and meeting!) the world’s greatest magicians, Berlin’s own Siegfried & Joy, was a highlight of last year’s holiday season✨
They looked especially festive in their #purple outfits. #DailyPictureTheme #Germany

Last night I chatted with my mom in Florida. She recently went to a women’s luncheon at the Methodist church. Participants who donated to a children’s charity received tickets to use in a raffle. One woman won twice and instead of demurring the second time she took both prizes. Oh, the drama 😂

When feeling down and solitude tries to become more pronounced, going outside and engaging with nature is the best way to chase away the blues.

This dining room #table and chairs belonged to my husband’s grandmother. The set was painted black and the chairs had dark-red velvet upholstery. My talented husband refinished them to make them perfect for our apartment.
