A Note from Robin
Winter greetings from my little village in Germany. As many of you know, Schloss Lerbach, my home away from home away from home (we expatriates get around), closed the castle doors on New Year’s Eve. What a run—I was there for fourteen years and have countless memories. I’ve written extensively about the castle in my books, so you might be indirectly familiar with the place. Some of my friends have called it Germany’s version of Downton Abbey.
If all goes according to plan, I’ll start playing at another glorious five-star hotel this summer. I’ll reveal the details here as soon as I know more—we’re still negotiating. In the meantime, I am scheduled for concerts in Munich, The Hague, and Paris in coming months, and I’m working on my book, Manhattan Road Trip, which I swear I will finish in late spring. This baby is four years in the making—it’s almost time to cut her loose.
The world looks like a big white wedding cake from my office window, and that’s how I’m choosing to see my life right now . . . sweet and layered and delicious. I just have to take my time deciding how much of it I want to eat in one sitting. Sometimes it’s good to step back from the table and just enjoy the view.
