I am back at my appartement. On Frayday I headed out down South to Suebia, this early evening I returned. There could be something said about the state of the German railroad, but I refrain from singing such an old song.
I have not yet read the news, and I wonder if I should at all. As I understand there is a certain idiot at work deleting singlehandedly the former order of the world. What is clear so far is only that there is a time “before the little fuehrer”, and a time “after the little fuehrer”, and in between it’s just turmoil.
So why bother with this ? It is a silly operetta, nothing else. In the best case it is ham acting through a farce, in the worst case it is nihilism at work. But I fear the results of this unworthy nonsense will stay, even when the ham actor himself is jailed for treason. Do not laugh, it is a not too outwordly possibility after all.
I would like escape it all & spend a summer night – or some nights – on Gotland * (Ger., Eng.): This Sunday Music is a 1960 title by the American trumpeter Ernie ENGLUND (Sv.) (1928-2001), titled Gotländsk Sommarnatt, Summernight in Gotland. It seems to have been his only “hit”.
I hope you like the music, may the coming week be relaxed for all of us.
* Gotland is btw one of the northernmost wine making areas, since 2000 (article).
