late night remblings

So i'm still pretty confident nobody else is reading this blog so I guess I'm using it as a diary of sorts for myself.

I should be in bed right now but I'm finding it too difficult to switch off for the evening. Having a laptop, a beer and a cigarette at my disposal isn't helping.

June has arrived ... Summer... here we go!

Romeo, Julia und Ich!

What a nice refreshing weekend.
Caught up on Sleep...ahh the joy of sleep.
Caught up on my reading, I finished 'The Little Friend' which was very VERY VERY good! I then took on an old favourite in 'The Commitments' such an easy and entertaining read!
Musically I've been listening to some German bands in order to improve 'Mein Deutsch' seeing as I may be here a little longer than planned.
I'm really liking this band mostly german language group but this video is just beautiful.

THis time last year I worked in an orphanage in central Thailand, it was the experience of my life and this video reflects upon it in so many ways.. .it almost made me cry.

So it's late and I doubt anybody is reading my posts at this hour.
(Not that anybody is reading them at any other hour)
I guess it makes it easier feeling pretty anonymous and 'unread'.
I've had a few beers tonight and talked shop with my friends ...

I find it comes much more naturally for me to say on paper what I can't in words, I'm sure it's the case for a lot of people.
Tonight I've witnessed yet again the struggles that come with living in this world, where smiles mask almost everything.

Life takes us in the most obscure directions, ... sometimes the only thing you can do is listen and wait for the next turn.... when I can't find the words....I look for them in a song.


So the sun is shining in Munich, in between Crazzzzzyy thunder storms and showers.

I've just discovered THIS amazing site this week you have to check it out..... Yes it's better than lastfm!

Reading 'The Secret History' by Anne Tartt at the moment.... it's a really good read check it out.

I've been thinking a lot about love and romance this week so the picture is from 'Juliet's Balcony' in Verona which I visited recently. Lot's of lovers...lot's of lines... it was really quite pretty. I wonder how many of them are still holding hands.

My love song for the week goes out to you guys!
