While listening to “Now We are Free” by 2CELLOS…


… I came across this beautiful German poem…

Was es ist (Erich Fried)

Es ist Unsinn, sagt die Vernunft.
Es ist, was es ist, sagt die Liebe.
Es ist Unglück, sagt die Berechnung.
Es ist nichts als Schmerz, sagt die Angst.
Es ist aussichtslos, sagt die Einsicht.
Es ist, was es ist, sagt die Liebe.
Es ist lächerlich, sagt der Stolz.
Es ist leichtsinnig, sagt die Vorsicht.
Es ist unmöglich, sagt die Erfahrung.

Es ist, was es ist – sagt die Liebe.

Listening to ‘Tokyo Drift (Fast & Furious) – From “The Fast And The Furious: Tokyo Drift” Soundtrack’ by Teriyaki Boyz on @Sonos #NowPlaying

Lost & Found…the movie…

Just saw the movie ‘Lost & Found‘ in a hotel room in Brussels.

To add a little melodrama to the setting. The movie is set in Berlin, a city I also love.

He plays a novelist with writer’s block! She is Hannah Hoekstra…duh…

They meet by change, ten years after they had a great head-over-heels love affair in South-America, in Berlin. That affair didn’t end that well after she never responded to the many letters he wrote to her after they returned to Europe.

They spent the night in Berlin walking, talking, dancing in a silent disco, and contemplating what could have been, if things had taken another turn.

Falling in love is easy, anybody can do that. After that sticking to it no matter what, is what really counts…’

Will they finally manage to leave the past behind, you will have to see for yourself.

I really loved this movie.
