stories mix posted on facebook:
did you ever wonder why I write thaaaat much here on fb!?
it´s because I write here my diary. already as teenager
I wrote diaries sometimes, but stopped it in the age of 19 because
I didn´t expect something exciting happening in my life.
Here on facebook it is a loooot of fun to write my diary. of course
I save it all extra (for example on my website www.thisismyartlife.com
) . I write it because I love to write it ... and why not publishing
it ... in real time ... while writing it. of course I will use
parts of it for my new book "the story of Master Patrick",
but perhaps there will exist ... one day ... an own book of my
diaries. and if you belong to my followers here, then you read
it already before :)
and yes! I also like the fact that other famous artists wrote
diaries too which got published, such as: Virgina Woolf, Kurt
Cobain, Ernest Hemingway, Franz Kafka, Jack Kerouac, ...

dec: *Tratsch&Klatsch Schönebergmäsisch*
hier im Krawallkiez Schöneberg ... genau: Eisenacher Str./Fuggerstraße
... wird zur zeit Polizeimäsisch ordentlich aufgeräumt.
es wurden Flyer über Taschendiebe an ansässige Lokalitäten
verteilt. Sogar beim U-Bahnhof Nollendorfplatz kleben große
"Achtung Taschendiebe"-Aufkleber auf dem Boden. und
bei meinem Balkon fährt zur Zeit etwa 40 mal pro Tag/Nacht
die Polizei vorbei und dabei wohl etwa 5 mal mit Sirene und Blaulicht.
Früher waren es maximal ein- bis zweimal pro Tag/Nacht.
Da hat der Aufschrei von Nelly und Sally Morell doch etwas gebracht*

dec: *advent calendar 2016 in oil on canvas* * 16 * <3 ISA
<3 she gave me that inner strength for going on with my way
... with my art ... by saying, while looking at my art in my studio:
"I like that and I don´t say many times that I like
something!". to meet an icon and genius such as Isa Genzken
for about 10 years has been one of the greatest things happening
to me while living and working in Berlin <3 ISA <3

dec: *advent calendar 2016 in oil on canvas* * 17 * <3 KIM
& JOE <3 "I like the maskman!" shouted Joe in
my direction when he saw me the first time. I adore Joe since
I know about his existence. When icons, superstars such as Tilda
Swinton, Nina Hagen, R.E.M.´s Michael Stipe, ... and Joe
Dallesandro gave me the feeling that they like my creativity,
... then ... things happened inside of me ... which I´m
not able to describe in words right now. With Joe´s wonderful
wife Kim Dallesandro even a friendship grew up during the past
years. they are wonderful and teach me every day that the most
important thing is having a good heart, being able to share and
love <3 Thank You for that <3 KIM & JOE <3

dec: *advent calendar 2016 in oil on canvas* * 18 * <3 MARIA
<3 one grandmother and one grandfather died before I was born.
the other grandfather was an unknown french soldier ... who entered
to Germany ... in the black forrest in 1945 ... where he met my
grandmother Maria. I know nothing about him and have only a handful
of memories of her, because she died when I was 9 y.o. . All my
live I was attracted to older people, because I missed it to have
grandparents to touch and to talk to. in the age of 10 and 11
... I built myself up ... up to five "grandmothers"
at the same time. the one who loved me most ... perhaps because
she had no children and grand children by her own ... was the
foster-mother of my mother. her name was Maria too* she did everything
for me and gave me all her love. she died some years ago too.
her favorite color was orange. <3 MARIA <3
dec: *dädä dädä bäbä* Judy Garland
is much better than Marilyn Monroe! *dädä dädä
bäbä* Judy Garland is the real number one!
how could America and the world ... dare NOT to celebrate Judy
Garland as the REAL QUEEN <3 I mean look the views on youtube
<= it´s a shame!
it was because of Judy Garland´s birthday why Christopher
Streetday started. It was on HER´s birthday when the queers
in the Stoneball didn´t want get interupted by police ...
celebrating JUDY GARLAND´s birthday :*
in this century we should put the crown on the head where it
belongs to ... and put Judy Garland on that Queen chair which
always did belong to her <3 :*

in my living years in Berlin* Rosa von Praunheim believed in me
and worked with me together while my beginner years in Berlin*

dec: what a terrible tragedy in Berlin :( it´s so sad :(
dec: to hear non-stop the sirens of police and ambulance cars
pasing the street close to my flat and to know where they drive
... is very sad and brings tears in my eyes. this terrible tragedy
happened very close to the place where I live. almost everyone
of my neighbours go to that christmas market and some of my friends
live literaly next to the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church.
In some minutes I will go to my nightjob in a hotel ... which
is located here around the corner. it looks like that I will talk
the whole night with tourists who stay in that hotel and came
here to Berlin to have a good time and are now confronted with
that terrible tragedy :(
in deep mourning to all people who died there. R.I.P.
dec: at least one of my friends has been directly there during
that terrible tragedy and saw people without legs and a severed
head. this all is that much terrible that I don´t know how
to handle it right now ... I was never in my life confronted with
something like that.
once I came to Berlin for the reason to live here in peace.
in deep mourning to all people who died there R.I.P.
dec: Patrick´s inner thoughts:
it´s tuesday night 2.10 a.m. ... some hours ago a terrible
tragedy happened in Berlin. I´m not able to sleep, because
I´m at work right now. in a hotel close to the place where
the truck dashed into a christmas market. I listen to guests who
talk about their fears. they asked me if the airport is open.
another guest told me, that he leaves Berlin tomorrow, because
he was close to the tragedy and saw "people with open wounds"
... how he described it with his own words.
people around me are in shock ... and so am I too. I´m not
able to realize that tragedy which happened that much close to
right now I´m not interessted to watch something else in
television here in the hotel. I can´t think about it to
watch a movie, a serie, or something else. I watch non-stop n-tv
and the latest news about the tragedy. now they said that the
number of dead people grew from nine to 12.
it´s in the middle of the night. the internet doesn´t
sleep. I read your postings and your stories about Berlin and
that tragedy. even someone posted a video which shows those dead
people laying on the street. a video which hasn´t been shown
in television. I watched it, because it helps me to understand
a little bit and to react, when I have to talk with people in
shock right now who are coming directly from there.
It´s terrible what happened in the city of love and I have
the feeling that the german politics sleeps right now ... and
that gives me a bad feeling, because "they" give space
to let rumours grow. I have the feeling that german politicans
haven´t realized, that we live in the 21st century and that
sometimes it needs more ... than just to wait till the next day
... to react.

dec: two days after that terrible terror attack in Berlin:
perhaps I´m wrong ... but I have the feeling that this
attack brought us all closer together. yesterday and today ...
looking in faces of strangers in the underground, on the street,
in shops, ... we all know that it could have been eachone of us
who could have been killed by that black tons of weight heavy
perhaps I´m wrong ... but I have the feeling that we realized
after that terror attack, that it makes no sense to fight against
perhaps I´m wrong ... but we all sit in the same boot ...
share the same city: old&young, believers&unbelievers,
Berlin born people&refugees, straights&queers, men&women,
perhaps I´m wrong ... but I have the feeling that we all
realized, that ... better than to hate eachother ... is to love
those words are just my feelings ... and I think they are not
wrong ... they are right.
dec: so far 493 of my facebook friends marked themselves as "safe
during the attack in Berlin" ... and I´m happy about
<3 eachone <3 who has been able to use that facebook function*
love you <3

dec: day four after the terror attack in Berlin.
(<= a sweet speciality which people eat a lot on christmas
today I met with a friend inside of KaDeWe. after I walked alone
to the Breitscheitplatz. I go there almost every week, because
I life close to it since about 12 years. and that much long I
go to that christmas market. Each year ... at least one time I
eat some Quarkbällchen ... always at the same stall. This
one in the corner next to the street. but this year three huge
cement blocks stood there instead. the stall with my most delicious
Quarkbällchen must have been the first target which got hit
by that black tons heavy truck.
I went to the stall some meters away and ordered there five Quarkbällchen.
while ordering I said to her "I come here every year to eat
my Quarkbällchen" and pointed with my finger to other
side. Almost I started to cry. I´m sure that this woman
saw a lot of people crying during the past days and perhaps she
was even there when the truck crashed into that beauiful christmas
I went around the corner, because I didn´t want other people
see me with tears in my eyes. When I started to eat ... I realized
that she put seven Quarkbällchen in my little paper bag.

<3 my mother <3 she would have given up her own life for
me. during the very complicated pregnancy .... several doctors
advised her to take the unborn baby (me) away ... to save her
own life. but she took every risk to give that birth a try. and
several doctors at the university clinic in Freiburg i. Breisgau
managed that birth. LOVE MY MOM <3 ... and yes! that veeeeery
bright blue is my moms most favorite color <3 EDITH <3
