Should my tongue be tied – so I can never call your name,
Should my eyes be branded – so I can never see your face,
Should my hands be tied – so I can never hold your hands,
Nothing can take away your love or you from my soul…

May my world be pitch-black – so I can never see you,
May a spell be on me – so I can never love you,
May I be far away in strange places – that fills me with heartfelt sorrow,
Nothing can take away your love or you from my soul.

We have new family members – 3 ducklings! “How comes”, you might ask, well the answer is a long story.

Our neighbours above us had a duck breeding on their balcony. Since we have a flat “hanging” over a harbor (difficult to explain, check out the home page of our house) below our apartment/flat is the harbor in Hamburg.

So, last Sunday (July 13th), they finally hatched. It seems there were about 9 eggs, out of which five made it down to the harbor very fast, i.e. within about 1 hour after their mother starting calling them from down. The mother was swimming in the harbor and calling them to jump down.

… and they completely “screw-it” up by making chamber music.

In fact, this is one of the main reasons why I still believe in humanity.
