I've been trying to summarize my last couple of weeks. But everything that I write sounds flat. And I cannot find the right words to describe how I feel about my trip to germany.
However I can try to.
It was a wonderful time. Though missing Sisto a lot I could enjoy myself. After a stressful trip to Miami and two long nights with little to no sleep (and a day) on planes and in airports I arrived safe and sound in Düsseldorf. My family was waiting. It was as if I hadn't been gone for over a year but at the same time it felt like I had been gone forever.
The next couple of days were busy preparations for the wedding while I was still deprived of sleep. My sister jumped in as soon as she arrived home on thursday evening and my mom did help out, too.
The wedding came and was beautiful and funny and full of happiness: a great fest. So that everybody got happy (ever after).
The next weeks passed through in no time: I went to Bremen to visit my friend. Spent some time at my parents and saw a lot of people around there, too. Visited my little sister at her new place in Utrecht. Went to Stuttgart to see three of my old friends all too short. And spent another week and a half back in Mülheim. There I played a show with a couple of friends that were touring and did manage to visit everybody that I wanted to visit. All of those last 10 days (or more) struck with a nasty cold. The last weekend was full of family again. Sunday was my grandmas 90th birthday and the whole family was there to celebrate it. A great ending for my vacation!
I miss my family. But I feel stronger, too, knowing they are always there. All those conversations about my life and plans and issues and sorrows and the good things as well gave me the chance to get an outside view and helped a lot to see our situation. I came back pampered and full of energy. Thanks to all of you who made this month full of joy and bliss!
