well. oh well. IT WORKED! heavy rehearsing, sleepless nights, doubts if it all made and makes sense- and it completely does! wohoo. i was scared of making mistakes- forgetting lyrics, not being able to work the music-program i just started to use 2 weeks ago, and many more. but it worked. and we had fun. and the music works on stage. also something i was scared of. background singers did a wonderful job singing and doing their stripped down percussions. martin is amazing. everybody is highly motivated- me included. hope i have some visual souvenirs from salzburg soon so i can share them with you. also a feeling that's quite new to me but yes- i want to share stuff on the internet! and we all can't wait to play our next concert. soon!!! i'll keep you updated.
also: 29 soon. time to get serious. O! yes!
so, although winter is almost over (clap your hands everybody!) i had an extremely positive winter-experience this last weekend. it involved mountains, snow, a lot of sun, a new sled for my son which was highly appreciated. excellent food. hot water springs. so i'm full of energy for this last week of heavy heavy rehearsing, since friday is the day- we'll be playing our first concert with the new live setup and i am, oh well, let's say: excited. quite heavily. also involving some cold sweat and sleeplessness. but that's how it goes. so. so. so. if you are in salzburg or always wanted to go there or if you are such a heavy fan of Os already: come come come. i'll give you a hug and you can applaud.
here's another old picture i found- maybe im getting a little melancholic after a long and grey (as i've said before) winter. i think this is one of the most beautiful pictures of my mom- somehow so 1970ies although you can only see her face..
