When I wrote my last post 18 months ago, I had now idea, its only a couple of hours before becoming a father. My son was born September 11, 2010. He is now 18 month old (obviously) and the most precious cutest thing in the world: Very smart and loving and sensitive. I haven’t really looked at my blog since than and I feel totally weirded out when I read the last entries. I feel like I was a different person back then with so much more freedom and desire and dreams … Now its all business, making money and success, welcome to Shanghai . But there is hope, to be creative again. However, the 30′s are hard. Torn between the 20′s and the 40′s. I guess.
However, (the most favorite word used from Lonely Planets writers ever) I decided to pick up my blog again, because it does help me thinking and even though I thought they are not many people reading my blog, I guess I was wrong.
The latest i have to share that a friend and I are writing and thinking on a movie plot. Roughly its about identification and illusion. How it is very possible to loose yourself in these kind of mega cities. There is plenty of work, there are plenty opportunities to create new greater business ideas, but all for the sake of money. You are so busy with being successful or trying to be, that you loose track of what you actually wanted. Of course there is an art scene in Shanghai, but its so pumped with money, you are not sure how real it is. I am excited to philosophy more about it in my next entry.
