My deus ex machina

Without Christina my life would have been more boring in the pauses between my shows in the USA. Always in a fun, spontaneous mood and with an enormous knowledge of where all the festivities take place, life with her has never been boring after 1990 when she in a rush cut in front of me in a post office line, apologized and asked: "Oh, are you Jacob Holdt. Do you need a place to stay?" And that's exactly what I did - having lived for years in my van.
In these pages I try to capture her many faces and "hats."

2003: There is a more teasing presentation in my birthday present for her daughter.

2004: Photos from her visit with my family in Copenhagen.

2005: My vacation with my daughter Lalou in Soglio and with Christina in Venice.

2006: Her children's birthday party in New York.

2007: Pictures from her children's European vacation.

2008: Her new apartment on the Hudson river.

2009: From her family's retreat in Soglio, when her son fell from the walls and ended up in hospital.

2012: Christina's and children's summer vacation in Denmark.

2018: And my vacation with Christina in Soglio.

Here are two videos with her - making a speech for my wife rather than me on my birthday - and - swimming in freezing cold water. Here you can read her own Bowsprite blog.
