What else has happened...

Last Friday, the members of AdS (Authors of Switzerland) met again at the Institute for Literature in Biel/Bienne for their annual Christmas Do. The freshly fallen snow gave the "Rockhall" mansion that houses the institute a fairytale atmosphere.

Just before the gathering, an event for the "Lyriktage" (poetry days) had taken place, so most members were there early and also left early. Also because nobody knew what the public transport situation would be like.

As every year, everybody enjoyed exchanging news, discussing the scene and generally relished in seeing old and new friends. The meeting in Biel/Bienne is always special because of the city being bilingual. A change of language in mid-sentence is common...

The catering deserves mentioning too. The freshly prepared "bruschette" went like hot cakes.

Let's hope our toasts to a happy and prosperous New Year will prove successful.
