It was time again for our AUTILLUS round table. Three to four times a year we AUTILLUS members from the Canton of Berne have a fun meeting somewhere.
On Pentecost Monday, it was at a trattoria in Aarberg. Unfortunately, the weather was too cool to sit by the medieval parking space (sorry) marketplace. But the conservatory was also lovely.
Monika Lanz, Peter Kummer and I were first. Later, Martine Barrelet joined us, and for coffee, even the busy Karin Widmer flurried in. This time, we chatted about upcoming book launches and the difficulty to combine job, vocation and household chores.
On Friday, after work, I briefly stopped at Esther Leist's book launch and art opening in Nidau. 91 years old and as productive as ever sure makes you go green with envy!
Esther presented her newest work "Mögen Sie Popcorn?" (Do you like popcorn?). After that, an art show with 120 original pictures from books made between 2014 and 2017 opened.
Isn't she unbelievable?
