love is the voice under all silences

It has been twenty-five years since I first sung this song and it still feels the same.

Some things never change.

music for Christmas (Eve, 1st Day, 2nd Day, etc, etc) – Pierre Dandrieu: À la Venue de Noel

by ada

From his collection of Noëls from 1714. Based on an ancient French Christmas carol which first appears in the manuscript Livres des Noëls from around 1497, and is printed for the first time in 1535 by Jacques Moderne, in his  collection of Christmas songs La Fleur des Noelz.

and Art shall awaken and Love shall sing

That first tone.

And the lute player at 7:40.

That’s what music is about.

November recap

by ada

November felt like it will never end – I struggled to cope with life on every possible level. I was homesick for Bregenz, didn’t really get Linz and went to work with a pain of anxiety in my stomach every day. It did not really help that, for the first time in my life, I worked in the classic 8 hours per day, Monday to Friday setting and absolutely hated it. It made me finally understand all those TGIF memes on the internet, haha.

No wonder that I accomplished almost nothing in November other than visiting the small town of Haag…

…the abbey of Melk, inspiration setting for Umberto Eco’s The Name of the Rose…

…and the oldest Austrian town, Enns:

I’ve already met Hungarians on the top of the Mount St. Odile, under the lighthouse in the Lindauer haven, in the Migros on the Marktstrasse in Bern and on the Reeperbahn in Hamburg. So I wasn’t even surprised to see this in Mauthausen:

Very much like Hungarians, black cats are everywhere, too. Here they provide security services:

In the middle of November I spent a few days at home. We celebrated my sister’s birthday…

…made some half-hearted attempt at Christmas decoration…

…and played board games with Milo, Móricka and The Cat:

The rest of the month I slept through in a Sevofluran induced coma, only going out in the evenings to buy food.

the gloomy month of November

by ada

A gloomy month indeed; spent with some good books. I didn’t become a fan of Maisie Dobbs, though.
