As you know I’ve been hosting an open mic for developing and professional performers in Berlin for the past eight years! It’s every Sunday. I’m very proud of the community that we have built and the family that was created from this dynamic. I have seen some great up-and-coming Berlin bass comics grow develop and I admire the practice the perseverance and the desire that many of these souls have shown us.
Thank you for continuing to support us and to trust that we have a safe space for you.
Mysteries are everywhere! Just the way that we manage to change the energy and emotions that we wake up with and express in your day. I find energy to be a very mysterious thing. The energy’s intangible. It’s invisible to the eye and yet we can all feel it. It’s a mystery how other people’s emotions can affect us and how our emotions and actions can affect theirs.
I’m a big believer in energy work, from gratitude is an attitude two practicing patience and perseverance. These are lifestyle choices and also a form of belief. During the past three years, it has been difficult to practice abundance and gratitude when it feels like every day is the end of the world. I believe that many of us have had a drastic change in our programming. Many of us have experienced complete city lockdowns. Creating much smaller circles and communities. Changing our brain programming and instilling a sense of doom and fear. It’s been a mystery to see how resilient we are as human beings and how the past three years have changed so many of us.
I hope that you have managed to work with your energy and create the art you want to see in the world.

Self-healing or invisibility…
In today’s world, it seems like self-healing would be more practical but less fun.
Fire breathing came in third. It could be handy but often enough will be misinterpreted as „such an intense person to be around“. So I had to cross that one out of my desires for superpowers. Although I am always cold at night and it might be a solution for that.
Got to continue to work on my daily superpower of persistence and perseverance in developing my creative works.
Think globally act locally!
As a person who travels around the world and has had homes in three different cultures. I’ve always found it interesting how beautiful and sustainable neighborhoods and communities are. When we live within them, shop within them, support them and become a part of this circle.
This is one of the reasons why I do not shop online often. And certainly not Amazon. I have found that going out of my way is staying on the path. 🦀 Fortunately I do not have a physical disability so I can run downstairs and go to my local bakery or go to my local clothing designer. Yes, sometimes these things are a tiny bit more expensive. But the quality is so much better the connection is so important and the Value that I am receiving is often shopping once and owning an item of quality forever. This matters to me.
I’ve learned throughout the years. in my 20s I didn’t care I wanted it affordable and fashionable I was into quick fashion. presently I’m in my 40s. I’ve learned a lot and to me sustainability and a lifestyle that has a connection to the earth to caring about the products that I consume. The support I offer and receive is priceless. Caring about the people that I shop from and cross paths with not intimately but as a community member is something I am passionate about.

Forgiveness is such beautiful quality and practice. We are in a world that judges people, full of cancel culture! A path built upon colonialism. A pain felt my the majority of humans that live in the intersectionality of inequality. So many of us are hurt.
We are hurt by “society”. We are hurt by family. We are hurt by friends. We are hurt by circumstances and we often hurt ourselves.
Forgive me. Forgive them. This does not mean forget or let someone walk all over you or let the system remain as it is if it’s not working for you. But it means let go of that pain and find a place within your soul that allows you to continue to create the changes you need to see in the world.
The biggest challenge I faced, in my opinion, is when I had a miscarriage I was in my 30s I was engaged and I had never wanted children. Due to the good company the supportive partner and the possibility of this magical unity, I went forward with having a pregnancy. So far for the first time, I had changed my stance on pregnancy since my teenage years. Where I announces with much force than I was for abortion rights but I was for women having ownership over their bodies but I was not conservative not straight those years at the farm so much of who I am today but this choice reversing this choice was big and then I had a miscarriage and spiraled emotionally and physically. I wish more people had spoken to me about miscarriages I don’t have enough time to write more about this today but I will return to this post. And I have surpassed it and it’s made me a greater person and I’ve explored the world and I found that being single is for me!
