Before I take off on vacation to Europe here is the last blog post until the end of March.
This weekend was especially rewarding or even stressful but the beauty of suspense and new adventures once again took over and it turned out to be a very nice Sunday.
Yesterday I began the day with packing my bike in the morning to meet up with a film crew to shoot a music video. This is a whole story in itself and I don’t really want to talk about it just yet but it will be part of the program at my book reading/signing event Birgit Soyka at the Bay Area Moto Shop April 14 2012 Be there!
Here are some pictures of the day. It is a pleasure to breathe the crisp air of the Bay Area on a beautiful Sunday morning after a stressful week.
In the late afternoon I switched the bike for the car to visit a house concert to listen to the John Stowell and Michael Zilber Quartet. Jazz to its finest. I went to the concert by invitation. How did I get this invitation?
It was a beautiful day in September of 2011. It was a regular office day and I might have had several squawking birds in the Hotel. I receive a Facebook message from someone I don’t know. Turns out my book was an accessory in the guestroom of an ex-colleague of mine now living back in Germany. A guest has arrived at their house and in the room and read “ To Drink the Wild Air” and liked it and sent me a message. Turns out the guest was John Stowell and is a famous Jazz guitarist.
Of course I accepted the invite and went to the small house concert listening to the Quartet yesterday afternoon to unwind from a day on the bike in the wild sunshine and raging wind.
Here is a little taste of the music. Enjoy the sample!
This is it for a while. I will be in Europe attending family business. Once I am back on March 18 I will prepare the book/bike fest on April 14 and hope to meet more people from the Bay Area motorcycle community.
