sign of life
i've missed you!
the internet drama continues. although, to be precise, it's a wireless drama. with my old pc, i can still access the net, but v-e-r-y s-l-o-w-l-y. surfing, blogging, uploading pictures - simply out of the question. it really, really drives me up the wall. after lots of attempts to fix it, i'll probably have to get some new hardware. hopefully i should be back to normal by the end of the coming week.
anyway, i simply had to go to a café this afternoon with working (!) wireless access to quickly say hello. and catch up a little.
last weekend (it's a week already!), lovely marion of l'inventaire de l'esthétique was in berlin and we went to see a photo show at martin gropius bau. mostly fashion photography from the 1950s to 1980s by f.c. gundlach. the rather fabulous shot of the two girls on a berlin racing track was on show too. it was great to meet marion, so many things to talk about! i'm sorry though berlin was so freezing cold that weekend. -- then, the day before yesterday, i received a sweet letter in the post with the most fabulously rose scented hand cream from marseille - sent by marion. you are too kind, thank you so much!
p.s.: the wonderful dress is my mum's. she wore it for her engagement in 1968. it's such a shame i can't wear it, i'm simply not as slim as her. but i like to look at it!
