Nekoč, nekje

Sobotna ljubljanska jutra so bila pretežavna za kar koli drugega, zato sem še dopoldne pogosto odpešačila na železniško postajo.

Med potjo se nisem mogla izogniti razmišljanju o preteklem garaškem tednu, analiza, sinteza, projekcija, okej. Bo. Dobra stran garanja za plačevanje najemnine mladi pianistki, ki v Ameriki pazi otroke, da si lahko s fulbrajtom privošči študij, je vsesplošna življenjska amnezija. Čez teden moram drugim poklicno pripovedovati veliko tega in mi ni treba razmišljati še o sebi. Kaj šele o tem, da predavateljstvo tudi ni ta pravi poklic zame. Kaj pa naj bi? Najemnina, diplomiranka, lajf. Pika.

Na srečo mojih cajtngov drugi obiskovalci ljubljanske železniške postaje niso preveč cenili. Izbiro med Süddeutsche, Frankfurter Allgemeine in Zeit sem opravila kar na licu mesta; odvisno od privlačnosti člankov na prvi strani.

Oh, ti časi! Ko sem še verjela, da obstaja Nekje, kjer so se judje sposobni izraziti o čisto vsem, analitično, strastno, osebno, neosebno, v dolgih besedah in z vso potrebno kompleksnostjo. Mene so bili v nasprotju z vsem tem krasnim novim svetom naštrikali povsem preprosto, zato med drugim tudi takšnih fines kot “levi in desni cajtngi” takrat nisem obvladala, sploh. Glavno, da vsebujejo dolge besede in še daljše članke.

A ti to bereš?
Je zanimalo francoskega soseda v moji novi nemški vasi, ki je z okom petelinjim zagledal Spiegel v moji roki. Seveda, se mi hoče biti navdušena, veliko zanimivih člankov vsebuje, na žalost imam zaradi preveč dela časa samo za en sam cajtng, ma paše, pa četudi pred spanjem.

Včasih.
Mu oklevajoče odvrnem.
Ne morem si privoščiti iskrenega odgovora, na podeželju je po vseh izkušnjah sodeč bolje biti previden tudi glede branja in ljudi ohranjati neobveščeno prijazne.


December Cooking Orgies. A Summary of 4.

Happy Moose: Week 52/2016

One thing I happen to be really good at is leisure. Free time. Holidays.

Sigh. And then some.

Last week, we played Anno 1404 till dawn a few times and slept very late, we visited the last Xmas market on 28th and bought quite a few sweets (nougat from Provence! Italian style cookies!) and we still managed to clean our home sufficiently before the new year arrived.  I really adore such simple pleasures and so much leisure.

Now, this is the last post in my Happy Moose 2016 series and a summary would be OK.

As we all know, 2016 wasn’t a good year. I actually wrote this post on December 30, just in case something happens before 2017 arrives to save us all. Which it probably won’t manage on its own, but still: some simple private claims shouldn’t be our world’s biggest, biggest problem.

And while I was often astounded at the quantity of bad news bestowed upon us this year, it wasn’t for the first time in my life I got to live in such an energy draining, scary period of time. I am actually a real pro at counting my blessings and being thankful for just about everything that won’t kill me. No sarcasm intended.

It was also a happy year, in many important ways: I read some good books, I found some time to study, we had a most beautiful summer paddling tour on Altmühl and a great time in Normandy (where I was forced to speak French and suprised myself at how much I could actually explain in a language that means so much to me)… I had a few deep discussions with my better half, which I always love but seldom find enough time and energy for, we laughed a lot because we roll this way …  and we spent many hours enjoying our workout, always a good topic to talk about.

Next year, I won’t be telling you about the ways I am happy. You will have found out by now my life’s not really that adventurous and maybe you even assumed I wrote about those happy moments for myself, more or less, so no need to continue telling you similar things next year (meaning I hope we survive next year). Nope, next year is back to Square One: I’ll just write what I want at the moment, in a language of my choice.

I wish you the best 2017 possible!


Happy. New. Year 2017.

Happy Moose: Week 51/2016

I guess it is always a good idea to start your December holiday right before the cold sets in. Luckily, it is not too strong so I have been enjoying myself nevertheless … reading, studying, cooking, doing nuffin 🙂

One does not get any younger these days, but it is inner values that count. 😀


Happy Moose: Week 49/2016

Saturdays are reserved for cleaning, in our home. Meaning we stuff our ears with audio materials of our choice and do the work, each their own. I tend to listen to French translations of good books and I absolutely adore these moments. In the afternoon, we stop laboriously ignoring each other and prepare some food instead.


Greenery? Yes, please.
