le temps passe ...


voilà, je suis là ... avec les émotions d'une soirée qui ne veut tout simplement

pas devenir une nuit ... avec des milliers de personnes se souvenant de

l'ouverture d'esprit initiale, puis de plus en plus soucieuses de préserver le

temps, l'endroit et la confiance en elles-mêmes. et prendre soin d’un parent ...

je pourrais contrôler beaucoup de choses, mais pas les choix des conjoints,

et certainement pas les jeunes après moi ... les choix doivent être faits pendant

le temps qui reste à moi ... attendre le grand bonheur est fatigant et ne donne

pas de repos ... je fais mes choix ... le temps passe ...

what's that ? ...

the care for the elderly ... are you involved in taking care of your parent(s) ?

how much patience does it take ? how much legal space do you have to act

for the well-being of the ones at age ?


to me it sometimes is rather hard to understand the thoughts / needs of the

elderly ones ... but give me a try at least ... maybe others will be patient to me,

going solo ...


still waiting ...

still waiting for the next stage ...


how strong you were ... 2007 ... not aware of losing your

youngest child, not aware of your incredible physical pains

to come ... not aware of the loss of contact to any your

grandchildren to come ... not aware of how much assistance

you are going to need ...

Jerzy Petersburski "To ostatnia niedziela"


orchestra ...

At the Nuremberg Trials, photographs of the orchestra of

prisoners at the Yanovsky concentration camp (Lvov)

featured as one of the accusatory documents. The

photographer captured the moment of execution by

the Tango of Death orchestra during the execution

of prisoners. After a search and discovery of this

photograph, he was hanged, and the orchestra was

forced to play tango near the gallows. The author of

the photo is a prisoner Shreinberg - an employee of the

camp’s office. According to one version, the music was

was written by a captive musician in the camp itself.

According to another version, orchestra players played

the fashionable tango of the Polish composer Jerzy

Petersburski "To ostatnia niedziela".

surrender ...

A four-year-old Syrian girl 'surrendered' to a photographer after

she mistook the camera for a gun. The picture, which has been

grabbed by the imagination of social networks, was taken at

a refugee camp on Syria's border with Turkey last December by

the Turkish photo-journalist Osman S. He identified the girl as

Adi Hudea, whose father was allegedly killed by forces loyal to

Syrian regime in 2012 ...

„Weit weit weg“

„A koider Wind waht von die Berg,
Die Sonn is a scho unterganga
Und i hätt di gern in meiner Näh.
Jetzt bist so weit, weit weg,
So weit, weit weg von mir
Jetzt bist so weit, weit weg,
So weit, weit weg von mir
Das tuat mir schiach - und wia“

Polygoon / NL


The news. Long ago the only 'live' news came to us by the NL

'Polygoon Journaal' in cinema. No cinema is your village ? Then

radio was your next option. Music came to us by radio, in an

abundance. And sometimes strange mixtures of music and

news, beautiful, like this song by Simon & Garfunkel.



Zelfstandig wonen


Reading. That's all what is left for most people when you are

are at 90+ ... That's the way to stay connected to a world you

are part of ... phone and TV too ... dependant of others for a

delivery of food and medical survey. We in NL lost the habit of

grandparents living with kids together in one house, the elder

ones have to live at their own as long as possible, as long as

it is safe enough ...

In these days of sanctions towards each other we often do forget genuine

power of the individuals themselves .... we often are not aware of those

personal struggles of individuals in our neighborhood, in our world which

is no larger than a village ... we so often do not look through the windows

of our neighbors in this world .... today i present the vision of my russian

friends towards how to produce food in days of shortage ... with farmers

worldwide only there is a future !

devotion ...


The start of the year 2019. I wonder how many adversities

already happened. At the start of a new year we do wish

each other happiness, prosperity and health. It is such a

common wish, it seems to be the most normal thing in the

world, but it is not like that. I escorted two people to the

hospital, two people looking for their hope and their

enleightenment. I wondered how many people entered

the doors of hospitals per minute, even in the middle of

the night. My playing the piano in one of these hospitals

brought gentle tunes of hope, that at that very moment

was my intention.

Music as an "island of peace, hope and love ... "
