We just returned from a wonderful “Lohengrin” in Bayreuth. I took some insubstantial pictures around the “Festspielhaus” and of course you can’t take photos during the opera. This is a detail of a wet white bench in Františkovy Lázne, taken early in the morning.

The Song of the Day is “Novorozene” by Jaromír Nohavica. Hear it on YouTube.

Be assured, it’s not my problem that I have no images. My problem is, that I have no time to process them. I may need to relax (which should be the whole point of vacations, right?), see, take images, and when I’m back home, I think I will find a proper way to present what I’ve accumulated. Could even be a book. After all, it’s SoFoBoMo, right?

Let’s see.

It’s past midnight, I’m in may hotel room in Františkovy Lázne in the Czech Republic. This is an old spa that, among many others, the great German poet Johann Wolfgang von Goethe used to visit. I have no idea how it fared through the days of Communism, but today it has regained a splendor that I did not expect to find. A beautiful place and you can be certain to see more of it and its surroundings in the next week.

“Twilight” is the Song of the Day. It’s the last song of Melody Gardot’s 2008 album “Worrisome Heart”.

It starts off as an instrumental, followed by a ghost song after a long pause. Oh dear, it was really funny that first time so many years ago, but can we stop that nonsense now? The song is nice though. Hear it on YouTube.
