One of the things I have learned is it is best to try and live a life pursuing the Wow! rather than the “So what?”
So who am I?
Child of the Fall.
Follower of Seasons.
Chaser of Storms.
Passionate and curious.
Have love, will travel and have been known to follow "my" musicians all over the place. I get to see new cities and countries, meet wonderful people. Just one way of the occasional escape from real life. ;) Reading, movies and some TV series are others.
A life without music I cannot imagine. I need it like the air I breathe, to make me laugh and cry, to make me think and most of all to speak to my heart and soul. My two great fan loves in this area are Poets of the Fall and Árstíðir. I listen to a large variaty of other artists and bands though.
Movie theaters are my natural habitat and I enjoy film festivals. The list of my favorite movies is long and varied. Generally I like drama better than comedy, but once in a while I need some laughter too.
You won't find me at a bar very often and if you do, you can be sure my friends have dragged me there. I do enjoy to go out dancing once in a while but nowhere near as much as I used to. A quiet evening at home talking or sharing a good meal at a restaurant is more my style.
If I need to unwind and let off steam, a good workout is the thing to do, preferrably one that relates to boxing. I love swimming too - it allows me to let my thoughts run free.
Even though I only speak German and English I like languages. For some time now I've been struggling to learn Finnish to no avail and I've even tried Icelandinc. Incidentally, Finland and Iceland are two of my favorite countries to travel to.
