Have a nice Nicolaus day!
Is this really me I wonder
I’m so different lately
So at ease with everything
So full of love and tenderness
I know I’ve reached
the point of no return
There is no going back
And for sure I wouldn’t
have it any other way
Once again I’m getting stronger
finally following my dreams
bury my history in the past
fight for what I believe in
Out of the blue, all because of you
When the facts change, I change my mind. What do you do? – John Maynard Keynes
I woke up this morning with a thought of you making me smile
and the picture of you lingered in my sleepy head for a while.
I’ve been dreamin’ about you again and now I miss you so bad
and the thoughts runnin’ through my head are driving me mad.
I’d love to hold you in my arms right now and kiss you goodnight
just to make sure you my darlin’ feel loved and alright.
for me to become part of something magical again.
Therefore I just sent in the names of the people who are truly dear to me to the Benedictine monks from the Dormition Abbey in Jerusalem for their wonderful Christmas Special called ‘Ich trage Deinen Namen in der Heiligen Nacht nach Bethlehem’ (= I carry your name on Christmas Eve to Bethlehem).
According to the biblical understanding the person, which bears that name, is present in a name.
Meanwhile it’s a beloved tradion for me to be part of this amazing Christmas Special and to make a donation to the monks.
This year they will collect the names and write them down onto a large scroll until Saturday 22 December 2012.
As every year they’ll carry this scroll to the Church of the Nativity on their herdsmen walk on Christmas Eve to Bethlehem, where they’ll lay it down on the star in the Grotto of the Nativity.

His heart full of dreams
he goes to extremes
Always going too far
he’s a true star
Listening to his heart
he struggles for his art
Sometimes he gets tired
of being admired
When the need arises
he provokes and polarizes
One day will be his name
written in the hall of fame
