Farmer’s Point Of View

fox hunting

I spent my most interesting times in Berlin (or New York), in big cities ie. But never the world of peasants has stopped to have influence in me. The daughter of a carpenter in the countryside took me (aged two) from a children’s home in a big city (Wuppertal). 20 years later I put the residence of my family into this rural idyll. My daughters (now in Berlin and Munich) learned to ride horses there – as my wife and me. I have always understood the country life as a kind of resistance to the fault of city life. Perhaps the simplicity of my music (and my naive paintings) can be understood from this attitude.

  5. What’s that quote “you can take the girl out of the city, but you can’t take the city out of the girl”? Maybe it applies to you with the countryside, Frizz. ๐Ÿ™‚
