At Home

in nature, in the forest, in the Romanticism of the 19th century...
taking a walk along a creek in Franconia...
absorbed in painting, if I can find time...
relaxing in warm thermal water, swimming...
in the forest, looking for rare fungi...
preparing a feast for family and friends...
with my son (16), fishing...
on stage in productions where I was allowed to contribute my ideas...
in concert with my favourite repertoire...
in a recital when, between two songs, I must strain my eyes to see whether there are still people in the auditorium, because it is so wonderfully quiet...
fooling around with friends, drinking a beer...
nestling down in a rug, watching a nice french movie...


am an artist with heart and soul
