Ok, to be honest, I couldn’t find a better title for this post… but I think it discribes best what I’m currently thinking. Yes, I haven’t posted anything for quite a while. This was mainly because I was …simply busy. But still I have followed all your post over the last moth and I think I can understand how your last year of LIPA went and where we all are by now…
On the one hand, I really missed “having the gentlemens club” at the Lodge with all the members of the BLS (and friends) – wandering around in yellow/dark red corridors looking for like-minded people – philosophizing about Art, Food, Wine and Life. But on the other hand, life treated me quite well since I left. I got great opportunities, met interesting new people and had chances to explore new forms of design I didn’t even thought about yet.
A few posts ago, Georg asked a question… Is this the time we silently say good bye? I think we/you might say good bye to a tiny chapter in this book called life. And even though you might be afraid to end it – It will always be a part of the whole story and the story wouldn’t be the same without it. The story would probably make no sense at all?! There are always parts in a book where you only read and read and the story doesn’t catch you at all and you are just waiting for something interesting to come… But suddenly there comes a point where everything changes and gets exciting and the whole story captures you completely. It doesn’t matter if this chapter was a turning point in our story or a chapter that answered a lot of questions, it definitely evoked a lot of feelings and emotions and it will alway help us understand the whole story.
As Eyal already wrote: This section of the journey may be coming to an end, but the journey is far from finished. Or in other words, this chapter may be coming to an end, but we are not even half way through the whole book…
For me, the time together with you, was one of the most important chapters of my story.

Regarding the Brookfield Lodge Society, I think now is the time to go on an expand our network. Now, that (almost) everyone is going (back) into the real world, is the time where we can all benefit from the connections each one of us has. In my eyes, it’s a gift, that we can build a great network, to exchange experiences and to pass on opportunities.
Just a simple example: It took me just a few calls, to introduce our swiss field representative to my former stage management colleagues and now he has a chance to do his placement at some of germanys larges musical venues…
You see how valuable the BLS can be for each one of us. Because each one of us is great at what he does. (I know it’s a bit old, but:) “Sharing is caring!”
Ok, this might sound like a big advertising campaign, but you’ll see what I mean… 😉
