Afraid; doing nothing seems like a waste of time, but how wonderful is it to look up at the skies with my kids and fantasize? In Bromskirchen I finally couldn’t do anything but play my guitar and write, … and inspiration came …



I'm afraid of doing nothing,
I'm too scared to fall.
But is it a sin to do
nothing at all?
And take some time
to look up at the skies.
Clouds draw pictures
before my eyes.

You see that rabbit, daddy?
He must be crazy
for he is eating a bear.
And a frog is kissing a princess
in a rocking chair.
And a giant comes and wipes
all of this away.
And suddenly I've lost track of time
and I'm afraid . . .
