Workshop update update!

Advertisements Or, third time’s the charm? Guess what? Something weird happened with Zoom yesterday (when doesn’t it) and we rescheduled the masterclass yet again! Haha. Ha. …………Hah. Now, actually, for real, it will be Friday morning, 1 April, 10:00-11:30 CET. Not an April Fool’s joke, I repeat, NOT an April Fool’s joke. That is justContinue reading “Workshop update update!”

I’m movin’ out!

Advertisements Or, good luck movin’ up Among other recent life changes, most of which have been for the better, I’m in the process of moving from more central Berlin to more woods- and lake-adjacent Berlin. I’ll miss my current neighborhood, to be sure, but I’m looking forward to spending the warmer months closer to nature.Continue reading “I’m movin’ out!”

An artist’s interlude…

Advertisements In which I self-promote Big news: five photographs of mine are part of a virtual exhibit by The Holy Art Gallery in London—all for sale—as of tonight! This was my first time submitting to a gallery, and I expected nothing of it, so to have received a positive response is wonderfully affirming. When IContinue reading “An artist’s interlude…”

“Hello, it’s the past”

Advertisements In a good way! Well, I don’t know about anybody else, but I can safely say this is the best year-beginning I’ve had in a while. I spent New Year’s Eve and much of New Year’s Day with a dear friend, walking around her neighborhood, meeting other friends of hers, counting lessons from theContinue reading ““Hello, it’s the past””

David Bowie at 75

Advertisements In which I *am* the young American Happy what would be three-quarters of a century to the one and only Starman. Though the ‘man’ part of that portmanteau, I think, belies his enormous contributions to bringing gender weirdness to the fore of the music industry and mainstream media. Hunky Dory has been on heavyContinue reading “David Bowie at 75”

Notes on Photography

Advertisements Or, look at me all Susan Sontag with my titles 🥰 There is a difference between taking photographs and making photographs. I’d picked up on photographers saying something to this effect across years of reading—photographers were inevitable in the nonfiction I read—but I truly understood it this past Sunday when I was thrust intoContinue reading “Notes on Photography”

Cecilia of Charlottenburg

Advertisements Or, a wordy Pinterest board Last weekend I traveled from my neighborhood in the former East Berlin to visit a friend of mine in the western neighborhood of Charlottenburg. I take just about every chance I get to stroll through Charlottenburg because of how fancy I feel doing it. Seeing it at night thisContinue reading “Cecilia of Charlottenburg”

Notes on Experimental Warehouse Music

Advertisements In which I venture out alone in the dark The other night I attended a performance by an international chamber group in a warehouse, complete with light installation and spaced-out seating. One of those true Artsy Events you would expect to encounter in an Artsy City. And boy was I not let down. InContinue reading “Notes on Experimental Warehouse Music”
