secret smile on

Finding relics of my summer activities. As earlier mentioned, the smile at your sister ladies invited me to be part of the second edition of secret smile, a nicely mixed goodie bag full of surprises. Contributions of artists, graphic designers, singer/ songwriters and authors arranged by Daniela Bily und Kathrin Knapp. My special surprise was the little, colorful a stick on monster tattoo!
Happy, I could contribute a few lines and hope to be part of the next edition od secret smile.

Secret Smile

beauty of the moment. about solo sessions

Skating is good for the soul.
A lack of motivation to look for company made me go to Dolder and Rigiblick alone. I haven’t skated on my own in a very, very long time. It felt great!
The things I was working on didn’t work any better only because I was skating by myself but stubbornness made me skate three hours, run to the gondola to catch it again and push harder. It made me swear silently when things didn’t work out and it made my soul happy.

Before I went on my solo mission, I visited the Museum Rietberg with my mom. It has an incredibly beautiful garden and very nice buildings.
The exhibition was called „The beauty of the moment“ and showed Japanese, hand coloured Photos from the 19th century and woodblock prints from the 18th and 19th century. The Japanese culture has such an entirely different understanding of room and proportion and I am fascinated by the reserved and powerful beauty that comes out of it. The high diligence in the details makes me feel humble.
