Ben on Skateboarding the Bobtrack

It is always a pleasure to read Ben's work. He writes like butter that spreads super well on bread. Soft, easy to read and on top (even better than butter&bread) insightful. His latest words can be found at SKATE[SLATE]. "Something Else in a Nutshell: A flashback to Beton on Fire". 

Keep on rocking bookie!

40 meter robe swiiiiiiiing!



I find letting go of my fears is a most rewarding experience. Fear at times paralyses, makes me stuck in desperate structures and keeps me from following my dreams.
I do little conscious efforts to overcome my fears on a regular basis. Sometimes though I do bigger stuff. Last Friday was such a time again.  Letting go of the concrete ground and jumping into the black night was something I cannot wrap into words. It is more like whooooooohoooo.  I felt liberated, free and clean. Thank you Danny and crew for taking me on your adventure and for an amazing life enriching experience.

Frog King

 
While visiting my sister in Vienna I noticed a handful of great new graphics. Loving the frog nearly as much as the teddy bears on the boat.
