Binational situation: here, there has been a mini-celebration of an American holiday in a nation where it is not a holiday. I did not behave very much like it is a holiday considering everything. What we did get here, was another relative came to visit which is really nice. It doesn’t need to be a holiday, but as adult relatives who otherwise might not spend time together often find times at the holidays, it is really nice to finally have another relative around.
Not much else has happened during the past few days. It is Autumn in Germany. I have enjoyed being able to interact with both my mother and my son.
Music and YouTube videos and ‘those two’ are the ‘big stars’ this week, here in a German village beautiful enough to be called ‘a little bit of Saxon Heaven on Earth’.
