Fellow Blogger’s Book is Here

I’ve followed Didi van Frits for years now. We even had the good fortune to be in Berlin visiting family at the same time and we got to meet in person. That’s was in June 2019. I dedicated a blog post to him in 2013

Berlin June 2019

He has just published his book and I ordered the English version and it has arrived from Germany.

Here’s the link for the details.

About

Here’s Didi van Frits Book

I’m 75 years old now. I’ve made a lot of music in my life since I was 12 when I started playing the banjo in a Dixieland orchestra. I studied theology, sociology, psychology, and finally philosophy. Of course, philosophy had the most lasting impact on me. But also painting, photography, caricatures (I love Sempe), and the weekly political debate or the science of history with its often frightening details. Where did I feel most comfortable? With the music.”

You can hear my recording of him playing. Just a snippet of his playing guitar at his hotel courtyard when we met.

One of my favorite blogs I follow, is hosted by Frizztext in Germany.     (The link is right here ) It’s fun to be part of the wordpress blogging community, supporting one another’s efforts. He is always encouraging.

You’ve seen his comments on my blogs or his alphabet challenge on fellow bloggers posts.

His posts are  filled with finger style guitar music and interesting photographs, curious cats and philosophers. He publishes a daily paper that promotes photography and photographers, news of the world and provocative thoughts and subjects.  He’ll tweet your post and retweet!  He has a ton of followers.

Today when I was walking down the sidewalks of Powell, Ohio, I saw this Volkswagen van in the window.  He came to mind.  He has a VW van in his header.
