What is it all about? A good question.

What is it all about? A good question. What is this about? What is important in my life?

What is the essence of my life - I wonder.

Is there anything that matters to me, a few lines I could write on a scratch of paper?

Maybe I would write down  my personal version of
Raymond Carver's Quote from the Late Fragment

"And did i get what i wanted from this life, even so?
I did.
And what did i want?
To share some love,
To ride some waves,
To sing some songs.
That's all i wanted on the earth."

My heart felt joy, in the waves that I was allowed to ride, in the moments i shared with my family,friends and romantical partners. Always when I sang songs, when I played with cats and dogs, wandererd around in beautiful nature, especially in Hawaii, so whenever I felt liveliness, freedom and peace in me. 

Whenever I read a good book or when I saw a great movie.
Whenever I joint in a yoga class sourounded by fellow likeminded Jivamuktis.  Generally, when I laughed. Sometimes even when I cried and w…

Hawaii 50 / A Year in Paradise at the age of fifty.


50 stands for my age and should not be confused with the famous tv series Hawaii Five-O.
I had a dream.I wanted to spend a year abroad in Hawaii.What many poeple do once in their lifetime, mostly after graduation at the noage of 20 plus and usually without any other obligations in life and probably paid by their parents.Yeah and some happy couples go to Hawaii once in a lifetime for their wedding or honeymoon.The majority of poeple sees Hawaii zero times in their life.I have been to Hawaii many times so far. But a full year sabbatical on the Islands really is something even for me. I turned 50 this year (2019). When people ask me whether they should go to Hawaii my answer is:Beware; Hawaii is addictive!!!

The life situation at my age, however,is different from that of a teenager. Am I in good health? Is the budget enough? Hopefully my business is still running passively.I won't back down. One Hawaiian day equals a hundred days in Germany. That's a good bargain.It seems t…

Who is Andy Weinstein? My Biographie and where to find me on the internet

A Kind of Biography:

Hi my name is (what?) name is (who?)
Andy (Nickname/Artistname/Pseudonym)
Andreas (Real Name/ Official Name)

I was born in Berlin, Germany in the Summer of 69 and Bryan Adams wrote a song about it....NOT..;)))LOL

In that same year Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed on the Moon with Apollo 11.

I went to Kindergarden and School as most kids do. In 1991 I got my high School diploma. I studied at Humboldt-Univerity Berlin between 1995 and 2000.I got my degree in Media Communication in 2000.

After five years of working and studying I travelled a lot and founded my own enterprise under the name of Weinstein Media in 2006. I am not related to those movie guys as some people assume.

So far Weinstein Media has been mainly a location scouting agency for giant outdoor advertising spaces(Billboards) in the City of Berlin and a record Label.

As I am also a photographer and musician it made total sense to use these assets for my venture.I take photos of Advertising spaces
