I have to admit,
I come from a 'family',
of 9 'brothers' and 'sisters',
who throughem* the years shifted,
from calling themselves "brothers and sisters",
..to...'siblings'.

Yeah...it's somehow....'cooooooler'.
,...to me,...'colder'.

{ I guess this makes ME,...a 'siblo',..
and their children,....'pedio-lings'....?}

Somehow,...the warmth,...left the silk bag, for me.
🎶 He's not heavy,...he's my brother. 🎶
...always filled my chest.

. . . . . . * . . . . . . ß . . . . . . Ö. . . ...

We moved in-land,
away from the Baltic spas,..
but safe distance from the North Sea resorts.
Northern Germany opened it's school holiday-season,...
The droves and sounders are on the lose,...
and hunters, poachers, and pursuants are perched.

We've with-drawn,...
for our own safety(!).

Today, we played the little,..itsy-bitsy towne of Drochtersen.
,...on my way to visit my doctor,
in Hamburg.

Drochtersen.
5 times more sheep then people.
70 times(!) more apple trees, than sheep!
Cool.

Surprisingly(!..!),....(😳)
someone else(!..!..!),
was playing the small market square!
A young,..blond,..accordian player.
...scheiße. (😖)

öK.
Respect.
We pushed thru the Market
and played next to 'the biggest parking lot'.
We had enough 'walkers'.

After our first Show,
we went and checked the first Pitch,
The young guy HAD actually stopped,.. 😊
changed spots,..
....and turned 'the weapon of choice' over to his....'brother'(?).
They looked..identical.
..but three years,
and some beard stuble apart.

As we listened,
the 'first' came and spoke with us(!).
[I love it when 'collegues' are....'collegenial'*]

"Thomaz, from Donnaz, Ukraine.
....Russian."
,he said proudly,..
offering us his hand.

On the Streets,
I have very good experiences, with Russian Artists.
I find them very respectfull,..
to other Performers,
..to their Art,
....to themselves.

It WAS his 'brother', he explained.
They shared "...one Accordian,
one Tent,
one Pot,
one Water Bottle,
one Money Bag,
and one roll of Toilet Paper."
...he showed us every piece.
We kinda thought:
...he had,..'one piece missing'. 🙄

But,..
"In 15 minutes,..they would change Pitches."
He was a gentleman.
We waited,...
and traded spots.

The day played on,..
we played out.
In the evening,
Monika, my Lady, paused by McD's,
to use their porcellan department.
As I waited outside,
Thomaz came out,...holding a Hamburger,
in his hands.
One single Hamburger.
His brother, was on the other street side,
standing watch, over the duffle,
....with the Tent, the Pot, the Water-bottle, and the Toilet-paper Roll.

As Thomaz approached him,
he opened the Hamburger,..
the simple, cheap,..1$ hamburger,..
........that 'we' normally buy ten of....
And with two peacefull hands, gently broke it in 'two',..
and handed 'half',..
to his smiling compadrč.

As he saw me watching,.
...he smiled and said:
"My brother!"
...as proud and happy as peacock in heat.

They picked up their duffle,..and accordian,..
pounded their hearts, with the free fist,..
and wished me: "Bzero xopomero!" ( "Have it pleasent!")
...and walked on,...
happy.
...each enjoying....their half.

In the moment,..
and STILL (!),
....i have the feeling,
we three, were all 'brothers'.

...and it's a good feeling.

Bzero xopomero.

* Kinda made that word up. 💋
