After some nice days in Bangkok I made my way back to China … went from Bangkok to Hong Kong , its a very crowded High speed business town, but there is some nice corners there too … specially all the islands around HK … you better check it out yourself …

IMG_20140225_180415

But anyway i am gonna pray we not blowing “ Mother earth “ in the future … what we gonna do if all will be only concrete, plastic, containers with products we don’t really need, polluted air & dirty water we should not drink anymore … i am gonna pray !

IMG_20140215_141242

Some mantra’s  & “ Om mani padme hum “  could be good  … ( but how I am gonna not pollute ? I am sitting too in airplanes , I am wasting plastic too … but at least, I can keep it in mind make it as low as possible – MINIMALISM … that’s the only solution – sustainable living … )

So after HK I went straight to Shenzhen, it’s just another crazy town across the border near Hong Kong where i met Josef Kleindienst again, we  had a nice coffee in a 5 star hotel for around 8 euro per cup …

After few days in Shenzhen Guangzhou was my next choice … I went to Krys my polish friend there, he has a nice home studio, where we practise a lot in the past and also did some recording work … you believe: I started to play the bass when i was making music with him … bass is an amazing instrument too … specially when it comes to funk music .

 So that‘ s march 2014 … after that i went to Chengdu, then to Kunming, then again to Bangkok to spend “ Songkram “ – Water Spring Festival there … almost 4 weeks in this crowded … then back to Kunming and  …

( sorry still working on this 2014 crossover … i need more time … )

and I straight took the train up to Lijiang in the mountains, its an amazing small town at an altitude of 2400 meter, and it’s in Yunnan province / my “ 2nd Carinthia  “ i really love it there … spend many times there …

In Lijiang they having 2 times a year the “ COART  Art Festival “ , artists from all over China and overseas gather there and we had a lot of good moments and inspiring meetings there …

This time also my Russian friend DJ Piotr performed with his new band there ( I did the first track of my “ it’s all alive “ Cd with him … that was in Winter 2012 and we did some nice shows in Lijiang and then later in Kunming with some other musicians together )

Peter ( Piotr) is a kind of “ Modern Sadhu “ who also practise fire dance and mostly runs around without shoes and so on  … fun too …

An Austrian in China … im orientalischen Blütenstaub

My friend Prof. Karel Dudesek founder of ASAP ( Austrian Sino Art Project ) wrote in his book

Left and Right Flyer

on page 240 following about me  :

Water , aka Waltaji , aka “ Flowing Monk “ ( Fei xing de he shang 飞行的和尚 ) is a   „FLOW EASY“ promotor who seems to be always have been in China through with the years of experiences in India. He was baptized by unaccounted numbers of Gurus, has frequent appearences at CCTV as Austrian Star, is a SITAR Ambassador and on constant tour in China between Blues, Jazz, Ethno, Fusion and Retro. A vegetarian and a healty food professional. He play with easy tunes where ever he is asked to/ loves music / nature and travelling … To the editors it feels that he always does the right think and is where we all want to be- SOURROUNDED BY BEAUTY.

Yeah , thanks Karel ,  that was a nice one !  …  But there is ANOTHER  one *

Some years before my friend  Josef Winkler  wrote this to me:  ( He is a famous writer )

Lieber Herr Dr. Walter!

Das ist mir nicht recht, daß du irgendwann einmal den Osten verlassen und wieder nach Wien zurückkehren wirst in die mitteleuropäische Langeweile, denn ein Besuch steht von mir noch aus, aber tatsächlich bin ich so sehr eingespannt momentan, so daß ich nicht einmal dran denken kann, wegzufahren, außerdem haben wir Ende Oktober ein Mexiko-Projekt vor, aber davon erzähle ich dir ein anderes mal. Sag einmal, wo wurde denn dieses Foto gemacht, in Indien, in Varanasi? Warst du auch bei Shashank Singh? Und wenn, was sagt er, was redet er oder redet er gar nichts mehr. Ich sitze jetzt Tag für Tag an meinem neuen Büchlein, das „Roppongi“ heißen wird. Nach Ostern muß ich es mehr oder weniger abgeschlossen haben. Kamering wird sich freuen.

Stell dir vor, was wäre aus dir geworden, wenn wir dich nicht direkt und indirekt nach Indien mitverschleppt hätten, vielleicht ein gut verdienender Manager, aber du weißt, Walter, das ist nicht unser Leben, denn dann müßten wir, wie so viele, als Schatten oder als mit Geldscheinen ausgestopfte Hülle neben uns stehen, ich neben mir, du neben dir und im unsichtbaren Gleichschritt müßten wir, ich mit mir, du mit dir, nebeneinander hergehen als seelenlose Wesen, aber wir haben uns entschlossen lieber in den orientalischen Blütenkörben zu wühlen und dort aus dem Vollen zu schöpfen und uns mit Blütenstaub zu überschütten…

Also Walter, bleib fröhlich und erzähle mir etwas von Varanasi.  Es grüßt dich sehr herzlich der Enzn Seppl.
