… because it’s Friday

I am getting ready for the long weekend. Memorial Day is this Monday.

I am getting ready for the long weekend. Memorial Day is this Monday.

My preparation includes listening to this beautiful composition ‘Canto Ostinato’ (“Obstinate Song”) written by the Dutch composer Simeon ten Holt, here played by Piano Ensemble.



Good news on Thursday (from the USA Today): “The president of the Boy Scouts of America on Thursday called for an end to the group’s ban on gay troop leaders.” … “I (Robert Gates) must speak as plainly and bluntly to you as I spoke to presidents when I was director of the CIA and secretary of Defense,” he said. “We must deal with the world as it is, not as we might wish it to be. The status quo in our movement’s membership standards cannot be sustained.”


Inspired by the wonderful post by our friend Herve’ with the title of Les amoureux. . . Please click on https://veverdu02.wordpress.com/page/3/


Yes, I am getting ready!

I was too busy (LOL) to go to the RHS Chelsea Flower Show (it ends this Saturday), but I could find this wonderful video. Enjoy!   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nSmOl0ELp5o

Does Nature prepare herself also for a day of rest and thoughts?

The little bird seems to be asking us: ” Are you ready?”

To all of you, a very happy weekend! To some of you, Shabbat Shalom!

        Lena, my comment on https://echtkuehnblog.wordpress.com/2015/05/22/steine-stones-pietre/
        So beautiful stones and I love their pink colors! Amazingly, the stones fit to each other like pieces of a puzzle! One star for each of the stones and a million stars for your color matching signature! (I have to confess that I love the way you print your name! So beautiful! Enjoy the weekend and please say hi to Martin for me! All the very best to both of you!
        PS: Lena is a wonderful photographer and sweet person! Glad that we are constant visitors to your blog, Stefanie! 🙂

    The Conto Ostinato is gorgeous. I’ve got Beethoven’s 5th Piano Concerto set aside for tonight to accompany the lighting of my candles.

    Shabbat Shalom. See you Saturday.

    Your friend, Barbara

      What a way to light the candles, Barbara! Shabbat Shalon and see you tomorrow evening for Shavuot! Take care, 🙂 Fabio
