What have I been doing the last few months, aside from working with clients and doing music and running lines (and being a camp counselor) for this actor’s workshop down in Tuscany that my friend Katharina did annually before the pandemic and has begun again (finally!), and why have I been so distracted by it… Continue reading Musings on finding one’s purpose and a sojourn in the classroom
Back in the groove
One of the reasons I recommend an editorial calendar to my clients is to avoid exactly what’s happened to me the last few months. I’ve been snowed under with work and family responsibilities, as well as starting a Master’s programme in the UK, so there just hasn’t been time for blogging or my normal activities… Continue reading Back in the groove
rolling with the haters, and begging for feedback or questions
While not getting too specific about who it was who irritated me the other day, while I was doing this roku account on twitter, I’d like talk about criticism and how I’ve chosen to use social media. To be clear, I’m neither a good American nor a well-integrated German visitor. Other expats or immigrants or… Continue reading rolling with the haters, and begging for feedback or questions
Twitter? I hardly know *anyone* there
This next week, I’m tweeting for a local account, which I did for a week nearly a decade back and it was HORRIBLE. Learned sooooooooo much about biting off more than I could chew, by being unable to adequately manage the account, while my personal life was in complete free fall. Next week, though? Gonna… Continue reading Twitter? I hardly know *anyone* there
Manly in Landshut
Every Tuesday, I’ve got a teaching gig in one of my favourite places in Bavaria, hell all of Germany. Whether it’s their infamous Landshuter Hochzeit (wedding) or the Burg Trausnitz (Trausnitz castle), this place is content gold. Expect many more posts from this beautiful small city about an hour or so northwest of my home… Continue reading Manly in Landshut
George told me to shut up, and…for a change? I listened
Above you’ll see me with one of my favourite people on the planet. Robert is nuts, but it’s a good nuts. George is almost as nuts as Robert and I are, but not quite. We’ve set a high bar, to be fair. Who’s George, you ask? Let me provide a bit of context I’ve got… Continue reading George told me to shut up, and…for a change? I listened
Schäfflertanz in the distant past…and again today
My family is hurrying out of the house, so we can go see these guys dance here in our little village. If we leave RIGHT NOW, we just might make it. It’s the first time the #progeny will see them, so I’m quite excited. Will share the experience as soon as I’ve got new footage.
briller de tous ses feux and now
My high school French has served me well. It hasn’t hurt that I’ve known some amazing French people, and of course I mean women. Oof. Tell me again why I shouldn’t shine as brightly as I can manage? Stories of Keith Moon or Icarus be damned, I’m flying as close to the sun as I… Continue reading briller de tous ses feux and now
Get your English back to where it was…easy peasy!
How does this relate to you learning enough English so you can communicate with your own little carpet munchers? Maybe you already understand and even speak English when you travel, and you’d just like to practise a bit.
Ostern in Germany with a little family
Opa couldn’t make it, so it was just the four of us for a five-day weekend – Easter, or Ostern as the Germans call it. You heard that right. Five whole days with my family, and? No-one has any scars, we didn’t have to go to the emergency room. We’re well fed and generally happy,… Continue reading Ostern in Germany with a little family
