My best wishes for X-mas and upcoming 2015 for all of you!

December 13th, 2014 (10:44 pm)

Long time no see, but... not forgotten.

Bah. It's that time of the year again. Let it be said, I truly despise the commercialism surrounding Christmas and all so-called 'parties', if it were up to me, I'd gladly choose to wake up not until mid-February again - days getting lighter & longer & warmer -
Spring being in the air, birds singing again, etc...

Here's once again, here's my attempt at The Most Horrible *KITSH* X-mas Tree of All Times -

:lol:

Well it's a decent attempt, no? That little 'tree' happens to be the same one that's been with me for over three years.
For some obscure reason, it somehow survived its life on my balcony all that time.

I love them fluorescent orange glass balls which I managed to get at a bargain.
Nobody wanted them. Except for me. Quite telling, I suppose.

There's been a lot of concerts I witnessed lately but I just didn't find the fortitude to be able to post about them.
Might have to do with my dearest friend Emilio struggeling with the aftermaths of having to deal with a dreadful tumour in his abdomen.
After a lot of surgeries, he's been declared FREE of all said rubbish now, and bloody hell I am so happy about that!

My dearest friend mr. Emilio, along with DeHuiz and Birdman, just signed up for an upcoming concert May 2015 at my hometown's De Helling, of the most lovely Jacco Gardner -



"... I can't see you, I would like to - CLEAR THE AIR...!"


January, February 2015 - please come AS FAST AS CAN BE.
I want to hear the birds singing again!

In all honesty, Mr. Jacco Gardner's debut album "Cabinet of Curiosities" might well be the most lovely music I've heard in about a decades' time.
Don't tell him - don't spoil him. ;-).

Hi dear! Long time no see. :):) Did you follow the Davis Cup at all this last month? Lots of lovely moments for Roger (and Stan), it was so great to see!

Glad to hear your friend is all better after surgery... tumors are terrible!

Happy solstice to you too. :) I fully agree, I'm not a fan of all the commercialism around this time... but I am very much looking forward to the longer days and spring coming back!

Internet just ate my reply. So here's the second attempt...

Yeah watched the DC final on a wobbly livestream. Great result of course, but if I may say so, most credits should go to Stan! Least not this remark, the moment I heard that Rodge would play Gasquet, I knew the trophy would be for the Swiss. Well done and most deserved!

As for E., that's a terrible story - but hopefully with a good end.
Me and my friends were on the verge of visiting Barcelona in Spring this year, as all of us are art & architecture lovers and as such great fans of Gaudi, when we heard E. got struch with this horrific diagnosis of intestine cancer. Immediate operations and such followed suit.

It runs in his family, he already lost his dad and a younger brother to this same horror. Obviously a genetic matter, reason as why he got himself in a yearly programme to have himself checked out on it. It now looks like it saved his life. He's not near to 100% as of yet, but has already signed up for a few concerts come 2015, so... we're having good hopes! :-)

Man, I'm most of all looking forward to hearing the first blackbird sing again at the beginning of the new year... As THAT is the most lovely sign of SPRING being on the way again!
Skip this part of the season please. Meh.

That said, my best wishes to you and all of your loved ones for 2015!
