About Me


I am spontaneous and nosey. Maybe not the most strange guy in town, but not as ordinary as most people here. But wait a minute, i live in Berlin -> there are NO ordinary people. Weird, isnt it.


Do you know Beppo Roadsweeper? He is a character in the novel 'Momo' by Michael Ende. Since i know him he is a kind of role model for me.

His philosophy:
'Sometimes, when you've a very long street ahead of you, you think how terribly long it is and feel sure you'll never get it swept.And then you start to hurry. You work faster and faster, and every time you look up there seems to be just as much left to sweep as before, and you try even harder, and you panic, and in the end you're out of breath and have to stop - and still the street stretches away in front of you. That's not the way to do it. You must never think of the whole street at once, understand? You must only concentrate on the next step, the next breath, the next stroke of the broom, and the next, and the next.
Nothing else. [...] And all at once, before you know it, you find you've swept the whole street clean, bit by bit. What's more, you aren't out of breath.'
