Light Up My Life

You light up my life like an espresso in the morning. Turning the synth corner of the studio in to a cosy place. Keep in mind, the sun is on its way back, and the days will officially start getting longer soon. Well, more or less…

Meanwhile we are enjoying the wonderful documentary The Beatles: Get Back, directed and produced by Peter Jackson.

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

  1. The synth corner looks very festive with the lights……The only accessory that’s missing in this photo is the official studio cat Jimi to “snoopervise” ! I bet that documentary is fabulous……..Have a great day Herman.

    Hugs, Pam (and Teddy too)

    • Hi Pam. Well, while I was struggling with the power cord during the installation, Jimi was very interested in the moving cord… ๐Ÿ˜‰
      I should have taken a photograph of his staring eyes…

      • I think Iโ€™m somewhat biased as I grew up with Beatles music in the house, thanks to my father. He also sang and played guitar and they were his favourite by far. But yes, wonderful band indeed.

        • I grew up with their music because my older sister and brother bought every album the Beatles ever made. Over the years I got the albums on cd. But I think we can’t complain, growing up with such great music…

    • Thank you so much! I was pleasantly surprised after watching the first episode. Can’t wait to watch the other episodes!

    • I’m ready to watch the second episode this evening. I was really much surprised to see how the Beatles were acting during their rehearsals.

  2. It looks very cosy with those lights up Herman and it sounds as if Jimi was a great helper! We’re hoping to watch the Beatles documentary over the weekend too – it sounds wonderful ๐ŸŽถ Wishing you both a beautiful week and please give sweet Jimi a gentle pat from us all ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿˆ

    • Thank you so much for your kind comment! I’m sure you’re going to enjoy the Beatles documentary. I’m going to watch episode 2 this evening.

      Jimi says ‘Thanks’ and sends his regards!

    • Well, to be honest, this is the first time in my life I put up some decorating lights. Maybe I needed this after these weird times and the tragic happenings lately. Normally I’m keeping a low profile during the holidays at the end of the year.

    • Hi Hedy. I’m going to watch episode 2 this evening and maybe also the following one too. Hope you’ll enjoy the doc and sing along… ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Hi there my friends! Wishing you a good break and a very happy ending of the year! Hope you’re having a wonderful time.
      Please check out the Beatles doc, I’m sure you will enjoy it…

  4. We look forward to watching the Beatles documentary and are also in a Joni Mitchell mood around our house. Hugs and warm wishes to you and Jimi, Christine and Bagheera ๐Ÿ’•โ˜ƒ๏ธ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽถ

    • Hi Christine. I watched a special about Joni Mitchell on tv, a few months ago. I love to watch documentaries about musicians on tv or on YouTube. This evening I’m going to watch de last episode about Get Back.

      Jimi sends his regards!

    • I’m trying to wake up in a positive mood each morning, and think about the next spring… ๐Ÿ˜‰
      I got my backup shot of the Pfizer vaccin today. But I’m afraid we’re going to need more shots the next year(s)…

  5. Wishing you and Jimi a wonderful holiday season, Herman. Yes, it is quite dark here in the mornings and evenings so close to solstice now, especially during our cloudy, rainy season. Usually by the end of the first week in January I start noticing slight change in the evening sky.

    • Hi Lavinia. Thank you so much for your kind comment! I’m also looking forward to the first weeks in Januari. And the longer days… And the first warm sunbeams in spring… And the first breakfast outside… And having ice cream in the garden… And… ๐Ÿ˜‰
      Jimi sends his regards to all the cats on the Farm! Wishing you and your family a wonderful December, my dear friend!

  6. I’m liking the lighting upgrade in the synth corner! Very chill. My GF is letting me watch the Beatles documentary on her channel (it’s only available on the Disney Channel in North America). I haven’t had time yet but can’t wait to tune in. Did you watch the spoof James Corden did the other night ? I laughed so hard. He’s the Beatle we didn’t know about. OMGee, catch it on YouTube if you need a laugh. Hello to sweet Jimi too ๐Ÿ’— K

    • Hi Kelly. Thanks for reminding me the spoof from James Corden. It was hilarious! I love to rewatch his car karaoke with Paul McCartney over and over again. This is one of the best videos on YouTube.
      I bought the ‘Let It Be’ album again. I had it on vinyl but not on cd.

      Jimi sends his regards!

      • My favourite Carpool Karaoke is with Bruno Mars. I saw Bruno in concert here and it was awesome! James is so quick witted, I died laughing.

        Are you hearing the Let It Be album with new ears now that you know some of the background saga of them writing it? ๐Ÿ’—

        • I was actually surprised that the 4 Beatles were such close good friends, even at the end. A lot of people were convinced it ended with lots of arguments and fights.
          Didn’t you went to a live show of Paul a few years ago? I missed his live show in Belgium recently…

          • I’m glad they were good buds in the end.
            Yes, we saw Paul in Edmonton after I scored last minute tickets of a sold out show. Everyone singing along ๐Ÿ’— it was epic. I was really impressed with the young kid in front of us that knew all the songs, every word. The appeal of the Beatles span so many generations. There will never be another group of guys quite like them.

            • So true, Kelly. The Beatles (and a lot of the solo stuff from McCartney/Wings) are my all time favourites. ‘Band on the Run’ is one of my dessert island albums.

              • YES! That’s an awesome LP! For me, it’s the Venus and Mars Album. My brother and I sing Magneto and Titanium Man and laugh! They’d be fun Halloween costumes for three friends! LOL! ๐ŸŽถ Well I was talking last night…๐ŸŽน๐ŸŽถ

                • Well I was reading your comment last night… Oh yes, I LOVE that album too. It has also an emotional meaning to me because it was a present when I was in the hospital for 6 weeks after an accident.
                  Wishing you a wonderful weekend, my dear friend!

    • Hi Cornelia. I went back to the store to get some extra lights for the living room. I’ll post a photograph later this week so you can witness how Jimi was helping me… ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Hi Micheline. Glad you liked the post and photographs. Jimi seems to love all those little lights. He’s such a sweet boy…

      Wishing you a safe, healthy and happy ending of the year, my dear friend!
