Nuages – dreaming with the clouds

genealogy+sky
Often I sit watching clouds flow by. I imagine I could join them like a train, a ship or a plane. Especially if they come from the West going to the East, I am longing for to follow them: to my roots, where my mother lived: in Poland.

The wonderful jazz composition NUAGES = CLOUDS = WOLKEN by the legendary Gypsy artist Django Reinhardt always helps me to imagine, that I could join the clouds on their journey to Poland, to that little lake, where my mother once was born: near Stettin, Stargard, Kallies, Dramburg, Gutsdorf = CYBOWO -maybe these cities and villages – or their names – do not exist anymore; the name of the little lake, where she dreamed to escape towards the West, was ANKROW lake – I should try to search via google, I’ve never been there…

    • I will never be able to copy the version you are performing, Andrey –

      – but maybe, if we meet again, we can try to create a very rhythm focused duo-version 🙂

        Your version Dietmar is also not bad. My is learned from the notes, but your is improvised. Yes, of course, if we meet again somewhen we’ll try to make a duo version.
