I've been enjoying the hot weather + LOVE / LIEBE in Berlin
warm candlelit summer evenings outside
and old movies in the outdoor cinema with Cary and Katherine under starry skies.
I've celebrated the last cafe mornings before school starts back
sometimes with an adorable partner
and sometimes with my journal and a delicious coffee.
There's been lots of tasty ice cream
and the best pizza in town at our favorite Italian punk restaurant
with the graffiti style place mats.
But mostly I've just been wandering with my camera
marveling at the textures of the Berlin walls
which sometimes look like abstract paintings
made even more vivid by the rain.
Sometimes the thick layers of posters get so heavy with water,
they collapse onto the street.
I'm always delighted by the prolific Berlin street art
and everywhere I look
fresh artwork jumps out to greet me.
Walking around, I notice subtle messages
instructions for life
and many who are protesting Berlin's gentrification process.
Kind, gifted friends have sent me great books to read this summer
and I've been thrilled to receive gorgeous mail art
from my Creative Courage course participants.
I'm also very happy to see that many of you have signed up for Wild Courage already!
Have you noticed my updated guest interview list for Wild Courage?
I'm honored and moved by the talented women from a spectrum of creative fields
