first impressions






the impression you get when meeting someone for the first time can be so right and yet so wrong. and no matter whether you spend a few hours with them or your whole life, you may never figure out who they are. you may not even figure out who you are yourself. and who says that's something advisable anyway. selfs are buggery, slippery things. most likely it's like trying to catch puddles of light and wrapping them up in a tight parcel. and why would you do that?

let's just say: this weekend was full of great surprises.

(pictures taken at the spiegelsaal at claerchen's ballhaus on auguststraße - the spiegelsaal being an old ballroom that's being left as morbidly decaying as it has been the last couple of decades. it can be hired for events.)

Dear, what's in the first picture ? A café ? Where is it ? I want to go there. Today. I guess I am having a middle day craving to Berlin !

i think i know what you mean, especially when it comes to blogcampers, the first impression can be quite striking simply because the reality is always different to the image you have in your head after years of reading someone's blog...

i would like to take puddles of light and wrap them up in tight parcels for the coming (all too soon) darkness ahead. *sigh*

so we weren't as you had imagined? was it because we never stopped talking?

This is poetry of the best kind -- it suggests EXACTLY what one thinks but finds difficult to pin down into words.

Your pictures are marvellous, too.
