How can we ever feel the freedom
Or the flame lit by the spark
How can we ever come out even
When reality is stark
Listen, how can you tell us something
Just to keep us hanging on, yeah
Something that just don't mean nothin'
When we see you, you are gone
Clinging to some other rainbow
While we're standing waiting outside in the cold
Telling us the same sad story
Knowing time is growing old
That was a wonderful remark
I had my eyes closed in the dark
(Van Morrison - Wonderful Remark)
The past one or two weeks have been very foggy. I've been busy doing this and that, but tonight I felt like driving around for a while, and I took my camera along.
My application for a job at a coffee shop was successful - the boss and the rest of the team are wonderful people and really easy to get along with.
Speaking of the Boss, Bruce Springsteen will be on tour in 2012... I'm not going to miss the European leg of that tour... a new album will be released, too.
Last but not least, two friends from school, one of whom is now living in Dublin, suggested that three and a half years after leaving school we should gather as many of our classmates as possible and that we should all hook up on New Year's Eve. The city of choice is neither London nor Dublin though, but Berlin. A certain percentage of our international circle of friends (an Argentine, a German, and a Swiss) all moved there. If I do decide to celebrate New Year's Eve with my old friends instead of my new ones, I'm sure we'll live it up, and we'll probably do a few things that we'll never live down. I might just as well stay in Hamburg though, for I would never have thought that I'd make such good friends in another place, and it is here that this only child has found the family he always would've loved to have had. You might say that they're just close friends, but it's as close to a family as it gets.Goodnight.
