kris
first of  all my most wonderful husband jan



in whom i found the mensch
* i always was looking for!


one of the huge hearts
i made for him in our master bedroom just before he returned from a business trip.
and another huge heart which took me much longer to finish. 









PHELIX KNOPPH, the sweetest dog ever, whom i adopted christmas 2009.





faina fraynt, one of the most wonderful menschen* and teacher i met in my life!
sadly she passed away last sunday - but she always will stay in my heart!

*Mensch (Yiddish: מענטש mentsh, German: Mensch, for human being) means "a person of integrity and honor"




















... and this is us - the class she taught -
we were a great team!
this is the collage i made for her ...









 












some of my german friends
... regine














and monika
  who lives in munich, the town where i grew up and studied architecture ...
these ladies are very, very multifarious
!


daniel, a very good friend and photographer, who lives in munich too.
he is just my best male friend - wise, cool and a 



brilliant photographer!





















                                .... in munich/MUENCHEN!





that's where we have met - in a typically bavarian so called "KNEIPE"





















my very best friends from australia 
TINA & FRANK  ;)))

a flower for ALL OF YOU ! 




ALSO IN AUSTRALIA ... I HAVE MET the most amazing and wisest woman ever:  Venerable SISTER AJAHN VAYAMA, the abbess of DHAMMASARA NUNS MONASTERY http://www.dhammasara.org.au/. i met her on my second trip when i traveled WESTEN AUSTRALIA 
 
... and THE MONK WITH THE MOST BEAUTIFUL + OPEN MINDED SMILE one wants to see more often! NOT ONLY ON MONKS ;) LOL
[that's when they talk about that beauty comes from inside!;) ... i know ajahn brahm would laugh now .... grin ;)]
Venerable Ajahn Brahmavamso [wise & bold in his words, which i love!], Abott of Bodhinyana Monastery http://www.dhammaloka.org.au/, near PERTH. I am deeply grateful that i had the possibility to meet and talk to both of them.
when you ever should have the chance to see/meet with them, do it. when you live in perth, you can consider yourself more than lucky.

she is not only a cool woman, no, she is in deed a tough computer geek!
that was my bachelorette party, i would say! ;) kris
my soul mate almuth - Almuth Petersen-Roil - , who also lives in good old munich - muenchen!
