Me, Myself & I

I am a localization manager/translator and intercultural consultant living in Berlin (Germany), passionate about languages, cultures, diversity management, dancing and good movies.  

Interested in intercultural communication and/or diversity management? In the mood for a Tandem-partner or looking for someone willing to learn Spanish with you? Desperately seeking an enthusiastic dance partner for salsa, bachata, swing or charleston?
Hoping to find a blogging buddy willing to inspire and motivate you?

Just drop me a line for a coffee. I am always thankful for the chance to get to know interesting and fascinating people like you.

Mood: My bridge between the present and the past

[Berlin, Oberbaumbrücke links Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg]

People may doubt what you say, but they will believe what you do.
Lewis Cass [1782-1866]

I don't like very much Lewis Cass' legacy but this quote sounds quite refreshing to me. It means for me 'people could talk about what you say, they could talk about what you dream of, as well. But in the end, only what you do really matters'.

I'm doing something inconceivable for the big majority of people I know and, to be honest, also for the big majority of people I don't know. Choosing a new life, a new career, a new country, a new language without having safety, an 'emercency exit' and so on is a very disturbing and disquieting thought. But it's also very stimulating and exciting: so many occasions, so many possibilities, so many doors to open!

Thanks for this quote, Mr. Cass.
