City of my heart

I have always loved Rothenburg o.d.T. and it’s always been a special place for me. I have to admit that there is a shadow that lingers now because it has become the city where Mom passed away. It’s too early to tell if this will remain or dissolve in time.


Who am I, and why I write. I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I am the one, holding on to the silver lining when the skies are gray. I’m a believer that nothing is coincidence, but that everything has purpose. I’ve made my mistakes, don’t we all, but I see them as growing pains and they are a part of who I am today. I have lost myself in order to find myself, and I still do from time to time, but in a good way. I’m a big child who laughs until my belly hurts when life wants to be serious. Career wise: I’ve been there, done that, and I took “The jump” off the hamster wheel in an effort to change my future. I didn’t land all that soft, but I can say that I’m still proud to have found the courage to do it. Coming full circle, I had it all, and yet I was lonely and had nothing. Today I choose to be a collector of moments and I chase memories, instead of the material stuff. Less is more, and the motto is quality over quantity. You’d be amazed at how freeing it can be. I see myself as a free spirit that believes in an unconventional lifestyle. Somehow I go against the grain most of the times, not to rebel, but because it feels right to stay true to my unique and authentic self. It takes courage, and you often stand alone, but if you dare, you soon realize that it is the only way if you don’t want to lose who you are. Just like most, my past wasn’t easy and I come from a life that didn’t always give me the opportunity to be heard. Few related and even fewer cared to take the time. But that’s the past and it’s history, the future hasn’t happened and the “NOW” is truly all we ever have. In the end we all have a story to tell, and we all seek to be understood. We all yearn to be heard and accepted and still life is hard and our path is full of stumbling blocks. If we can see the lessons in adversity we may realize that the toughest moments are often our greatest teachers. There is a reason for the saying that the stars can’t shine without darkness, and it might be darkness that will show you the light.
It took a series of (un)fortunate events, to learn to glow through the pain, to learn how to dance in the rain. I believe in Magic and wonder, and the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. As an empath this old soul often feels a little too much, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Today, I am here to tell my story because I believe that it can help others. It is my hope to bring inspiration and strengths to you, while showing you that it can be done. I know you are out there, and I know you are suffering in silence. I am here to tell you that you are not alone, and your voice is being heard loud and clear. Hang on and be strong, transformation is yours. 
In light and love....Rhapsody Bohème 💙🦋

  1. I hope for you, that it will dissolve by time, so you can feel good about Rothenburg ob der Tauber again, dear Rhapsody.
    I do plan to move not so far away from there, when I get the possibility. More close to Stuttgart, as my daughter live not so far away from there.
    Much love to you ❤

      1. For now I’m saving, as it is expensive to move so far from Spain. I hope to be able to move in the coming year and so fast as possible. Rent is more expensive in Germany, so I will have to have enough to go in somewhere for a beginning. I don’t know, how easy it will be to find a place, where I must have my animals either, one cat at 16 years and Odin at 7 years old now. I have made sales with my jewelry to save that way too. So I hope for soon.

      2. I can only imagine and there is so much that needs to be coordinated and be done with a move like this. It can get overwhelming but you can do little things while you save to lighten the load. It will happen my friend, one step at a time.
        Wishing you all the best and sending love and light your way. ❤️

      3. Yes, it is. I have moved so many times in my life, first in Denmark and then also here in Spain, where I have sorted out every time before a move.
        What takes mostly space up for me is my things for creativity, both jewelry and lots of other stuff too. This is some of the difficult to sort out.

  2. It was difficult visiting one of the clinics mom was a patient at when I was the patient..I didn’t go back there.
    I think selling the house is going to be the hardest part for both of us. Necessary and crazy hard. Holding one of zebra rocks as I think of you.
