These days I meet other like minded people regularly, especially in record shops here and abroad. My job, if we can call it that, is very common in Berlin and with those who visit here. Last night at Oye Kreuzkolln there was an in-store session with Andras Fox from Melbourne. He's about 20 years old and was playing records that I bought before he was born among a plethora of other records I'd never heard. Just about everyone I know in Berlin, save my Canadian friends strangely, were in attendance. The feeling of community is strong, as is the enthusiasm. Feeling very fortunate and appreciative. The highs and lows have been very intense here. But I'm glad we've stayed.
