I hope ...


I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something. 

– Neil Gaiman

Happy New Year!! 

Cordially yours, 




Wishing you


Wishing you a Merry Christmas touched 
with wonder and filled with love
 to all those who celebrate.

Much love, 




when fear and hatred rules the world


a dark day for America and the world - a huge step back in evolution

I can't believe what happens in our world during the last two year Jessika just wrote: "stop the world and let me off" I answer: PLEASE TAKE ME WITH YOU I won't live anymore on a planet where stupidity and violence are gaining the upper hand.




Soglio - pure Poetry


«La soglia del paradiso» (The threshold to paradise). This is how the painter Giovanni Segantini named this mountain village, in which he spent several winters.

Located on a sunny terrace at an altitude of 1090 meters (3576 ft.), Soglio offers breathtaking views of the valley down below and the majestic peaks of the Sciora Mountain group on the other side of the valley. The past is always present while walking through this compact village of houses, barns and narrow, cobbled, labyrinth-like alleyways.

Archaeological research has found that Soglio was already settled during prehistoric times. The name of the village was first documented in 1219. Luxurious walled-gardens and tiny plazas with water and wash fountains give this picturesque alpine village an Italian flair. In the village center is the Palazzo Salis with its romantic Baroque garden, built in the 17th century by the powerful and influential Salis family. Even the poet Rainer Maria Rilke came to Soglio and stayed in the Palazzo in search of inspiration.

On the edge of Soglio's sunny terrace, stands the Evangelical Church of St. Lorenzo, which was built in 1354, and restored and enlarged in 1506 and 1750. The church hosts a variety of summer concerts.

Soglio is also the perfect starting point for many excursions, such as the "Via Panoramica", which winds along the north side of the valley to Casaccia.

september song


"Oh, it's a long, long while from May to December
But the days grow short when you reach September
When the autumn weather turns the leaves to flame
One hasn't got time for the waiting game

.... "

Frank Sinatra lyrics - SEPTEMBER SONG



il fascino del Sud - all'intimatà


Die Schönheiten der italienischen Natur wollen weilend genossen sein, nicht im Wandel, 
sondern aus dem Rahmen von Palästen und Kunstgärten, träumend und erschöpfend.

- Carl Spitteler
