RIP Uncle Karl-Heinz

We just saw each other two weeks ago on Christmas Eve.
And now you are gone. I can't remember a Christmas
without you, playing the every year family game.
Falling asleep and never waking up again is not
a bad way to go. Good by Karlemänchen.

Traveling again

New Zealand I'm coming
Booked my flight today
First big trip since 1997
32 hours away
600 km further
is exact the other side of the earth
looking from here...

Monthy Phyton: Always look on the bright side of life

Some things in life are bad,
They can really make you mad,
Other things just make you swear and curse,
When you're chewing on life's gristle,
Don't grumble,
Give a whistle
And this'll help things turn out for the best.

Always look on the bright side of life.
Always look on the light side of life.

If life seems jolly rotten,
There's something you've forgotten,
And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing.
When you're feeling in the dumps,
Don't be silly chumps.
Just purse your lips and whistle.
That's the thing.

Always look on the bright side of life.
Always look on the right side of life,

For life is quite absurd
And death's the final word.
You must always face the curtain with a bow.
Forget about your sin.
Give the audience a grin.
Enjoy it. It's your last chance, anyhow.

Always look on the bright side of death,
Just before you draw your terminal breath.

Life's a piece of shit,
When you look at it.
Life's a laugh and death's a joke, it's true.
You'll see it's all a show.
Keep 'em laughing as you go.
Just remember that the last laugh is on you.

Always look on the bright side of life.
Always look on the right side of life.

Petra I will miss you so much
so many chances
and  potential
so much power
such beauty
so much pain
my friend for so long
I bet you are with the angels now
I miss your smile
Yours always!

It is the year of people leaving
One more gone.
Father of a ten year old girl
Life is no safe place..
but it goes on doesn't it??
Not for everyone so it seems
And the year is not even finished
Winter is sitting on the doorstep..
It's cold right now.. frost on the window..
I can smell the first snow ... feel it in my bones..
This year I dread the winter...

Angelo Branduardi. Dust and Ashes

I am dust and ashes
My crown is worm and white bone
There's no man suckled milk
Though he run I will not call him
His chains will seem as feathers
When silently I lock mine
His iron gate but cobweb come his moment

I am dust and ashes
My jewels maggots crawling
There's no man woman loved
Will not surrender when I beckon
Sand is running my blade shining
Bend your heads why stay my welcome
The steps are worn my ferryman awaits you

Oh sir you do us honour
Attending on our humble dwelling
Lay down your glass and blade
And take a few turns with us
We beg you dance a few steps
A rondeau of remembrance
Forget a while the flesh you should have taken...

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.
