for the past two years i have tried the summary of the year – the first few sentences of the first post of the month. twelve fragments, twelve insights into how the year has been. so, here we go:
January – some assorted pictures
so, i thought, maybe i publish some pictures again. there is no united theme, so do not look for it.
February – a song for winter
so.. leek or daffodil?
April – april 1 2012
clouds like blotches of ink

August – foreign moments
try this – for a moment, a few minutes,
walk, drive, commute, move through your home town or city like you were a foreigner.
September – barefoot
to stand barefoot next to a tree, and extend a hand
and grow into the grass and soil beneath, and reach up, out, towards the sun.
October – liver, apples, white wine and onions
for about 4 persons
ca 500g liver
1 large onion (or as much as you like), thinly sliced, divided in two portions
November – when all else fails
in its incapacitating, insane clarity,
December – one – an event and a promise
by pure serendipity (i have really wanted to use this word in a text for some time, and here it is) i was a witness to the performance of this oratorio in the new st. gertrude’s tonight, by an excellent latvian choir, exquisite orchestra and fabulous, fabulous soloists (sergejs jēgers’ singing just blew the top of my head off, and it has not returned yet).
