AC sanctuary

The blurry silence of a cold night; only the light of candles and the warmth of an open fire. A pot with steaming pasta in front of me and a glass of red. Nobody moves, but Emma drinking water. And to add another dose of clicheƩ, Cohen's words a dripping out of the speakers. His music will always stay with me. And it will always root me. Somehow.

This is has been an overwhelming week, with so much good, with some bad and with a drive home from hell. But that is another story. All is fine now and I am exactly where I need to be. Right here in my countryside sanctuary.

To have a look into more thoughts and probably more images on SANCTUARY, visit the gorgeous Veronica, who had send out the friendly invitation for this art challenge. Thank you!

Hey guys, in addition to the FOODTHOUGHTS calendar, I have created something new. From now on, you can get FOODTHOUGHTS postcards as well. Each on elegant paper and printed in the studio. I just stocked up my new Etsy store with pomegranates, tangerines, eggs and roses.

AC winter salon

It is freezing out there and after a long walk with Emma through the fields today, I have to say, everything looks stunningly beautiful. It still sits with me, glowing. And then again, it feels like winter is coming on many levels these days. Not only the bright and refreshingly crisp part of it. It feels like it is getting cold. Last week has been filled up with worrying events and political developments. Stuff, that most of us probably didn't expect. At all. Well, I didn't and I still feel a bit like I've got hit by a bus, wondering where we are heading and how to react to an atmosphere that is a so smoky from all the screaming and shouting and an uncomfortable dose of hate. 

I have a deep longing for bringing people together; to get closer and talk, to drink, discuss and even argue, as long as we will meet at the same table and hug each other, when departing. A WINTER SALON is exactly what I need right now and after the topic for this week's AC was out, the husband and I decided, to go back to our studio dinners immediately. This is what we know and what we do well. Coming together in all our differences, with respect, with love and the warmths of good food. 

Everybody has this special talent, something little or huge, that can change at least the moment. No time for hiding under a duvet cover, but a time to celebrate the good stuff in life.

Therefor, I wish you a good and exciting week ahead. Risk something.

AC school

Finally, here is my very belated contribution to last weekend's AC SCHOOL. When thinking about the topic, I usually had something completely different in mind. As it happens so often. Then my computer caught some technical hickups throughout Saturday and I simply had to let it go.

To make up for the disapointement, the husband and I decided to call it quits, invite some friends over and make it a cosy movie night. And there it was, one of my all time favourite movies.
And the funny school story I had planned to tell, was not important any more. What was more important, how much this movie touched me. Again. The idea of personal strenght, the power of nature and of intuition. The most I have learned in my life so far, was learning by simply living that life. And that deep understanding of human kind, I was taught through traveling.

If you like to know, what all the others had to say and even more, to show for the AC, jump over to the lovely Ariane and enjoy!

queen of colors

The colors have dramatically changed out here. I should probably say, beautifully. With all the shades of brown and yellow, and the moody atmosphere, these are definitely some of my favourite weeks of the year. I am an autumn girl. And actually, it doesn't matter, where I am. Be it big city lights or the much calmer pace in the countryside; am breathing a little deeper and feel a little more inspired than usual.

How about you?
