Today is my birthday

Today is my birthday (born 1945), without knowing that kindly blues harp player Gernot added his harp again to one of my guitar tracks – a wonderful gift, I hope you like it too…

about my little guitar tribute to Подмосковные вечера (Moscow Nights) – there was a remake by Kenny Ball in the sixties too as “Midnight in Moscow” – I got an e-mail by Andrey Shilov: “This song is known in the West under the name MOSCOW NIGHTS, though in Russian it is not Moscow… Its title is “Подмосковные вечера” what means EVENINGS IN THE MOSCOW SUBURBS…”
P.S.:
I’ve never been in Moscow, but I feel today like a cat in a winter palace / Palais d’Hiver = Зимний дворец :

Actually I’m drawing my personal sketchbook for my grandchildren… – click on the picture to enter my flickr galleries

comment:
today is my birthday, I was born 1945. So many things happened since then. For example in the fifties in my hometown: a little elephant, his name was Tuffi, fell out of the monorail down into the water… he stayed unhurt, firemen pulled him out of the water; I heard he later was sold to a circus in France, at last he died after eating a little bottom of French perfume in a Zoo…

    • a great intro, Lisa: “Drawing makes you see things clearer, and clearer, and clearer still. The image is passing through you in a physiological way, into your brain, into your memory – where it stays – it’s transmitted by your hands.”
      ― Martin Gayford, A Bigger Message: Conversations with David Hockney

      you are serving a fine motivation, Lisa, to continue my little project to make a sketchbook for my grandchildren – not easy for me, because I am not an artist like you (or Albrecht Dürer)

    • “I did it! I wrote for 31 days on the same topic…” = congratulations, Colline! It’s a great challenge to continue with perseverance! My aim is to draw a sketchbook for my grandchildren with at least 100 pages – I only have 15 till now,,,

  18. Best wishes on this special day. Not only is it your birthday but my husband just informed me that it’s snowing outside. Sure enough. The first snow of the season.

  30. HPPY BIRTHDAY FRIZZ! Excellent music and lovely drawings. Doing a personal sketchbook for your children is an excellent idea, a very entretaining and amusing way to tell your granchildren about your life experiences.
    Kind greetings,

    • the kids are too young to read but they have the rhymes in their heads – the drawings are the landmark for remembering the words… – and for me they became landmarks of my life resumes…

  33. Happy happy birthday to you! I know it’s been a long, eventful life, and I thought it was amusing that you chose to share the elephant story – a very wacky one! In a way maybe it shows how your life has been filled with such different, unimaginable events. I like the sketches, too – love the cat, with its strange expression and the textured snow – that one is great!
