Attempt number 2:

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!
What stays? 
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!

A big Hello

and apology for not giving notice at all...
I finally made it to germany!

For already two weeks I enjoy the company of friends and family. The first days were full of sleep deprivation, organisation and preparation. Lots of things had to be done for my brothers wedding since me and my sister had high goals doing a shadow scene of their first meeting and falling in love - story.
I guess we were most surprised about the outcome and the merry couple was touched to tears.
The most surprising moment of all was how well my sister and me worked together. As well as when it comes to preparation as to setting up the actual scene.
There are no pictures yet, but if I get my hands on you'll get your sweet little moment, I promise.

After the wedding I met some friends here and there. Played with the sweetest little two year old there is. Visited my mothers country garden (Potatoes, zucchini, kuri squash and lots of flowers). Enjoy the last berries of summe and lots of soy yogurt and finally after a bazillion years made vegan marshmallows.
Last week I visited Bremen to see one of my old fellows from puppetry class. I really like Bremen and we enjoyed some touristy days around town, lots of good food - some bought some found! -, card games on her scenic roof terrace and a short camping trip.
(Sorry if my english starts getting a little weak.)

Now I'm at my parents for a short week until the weekend which I spend at my sisters place. She just moved to Utrecht and exploring this city togehter with her sounds like lots of fun.
That's it for now.
You wanna see yome really huge zucchini fruit? We cut them yesterday. I mistakenly cut the small one, too. Now what's your favorite zucchini dish???
