Blow Away the Blues in Berlin

Blue is my favorite color, but being a bit blue bites badly. I remind myself frequently that life's colors are just as bright as they ever were, it's just my perception that's changed.


For this reason, I'm very much looking forward to blowing away my blues with a trip to Berlin next week. I've never been there before, and Eike Stepper will be my personal tour guide, so I'm totally stoked. The Eclipse Board of Directors meets June 17 and 18. As Mike mentioned, it's the first meeting of the board outside of the states and it's in Germany in recognition of the large number of German members who have been traveling across the planet for so many years; consider how far California is from Germany! I don't suppose it's very green regardless of where we have the meetings.


As a small part of my fun filled week, we're planning a modeling party on June 16th starting at 7:00PM at the Bavarium hosted by Eike and yours truly. We promise free beer and witty commentary. A professional photographer will attend. If you plan to partake, please register your intent. Well, I confess I've become a bit delusional; it's actually a "Meet the Board Members Stammtisch," but I'm a board member and you'll get to meet Eike and me, so that makes it a modeling party, in my humble opinion. See you there!

Ed, I hope you have a great trip to Berlin. What's the second plant in your posting? It's quite beautiful.

I appreciate the consonantal alliteration in the blog post title.

Kim, I thought they were green flowers but was told they are elm keys. They still look like beautiful green flowers to me though...

You'll surely enjoy your trip to Berlin. From time to time, a person should go out of his environment, to see other things and to meet other people. Same work, same environment, same daily tasks, could be really boring. buy mac cosmetics online
