The piano player

I’m excited. We will be entering the studio soon, to record my last compositions. My arranger Cenk asked: “How about the piano?” He means: “Will you play the piano?” He knows. I am a terrible piano “player”. ☺ The last time I said “Yes” to that question I had to work with the great pianist […]

Substitute for Andrea Bocelli

It’s February,1999. A man ran onto the back-stage of Shrine Auditorium, Los Angeles. A woman looked at him with questioning eyes. He said Andrea Bocelli won’t make it for the rehearsals but a 17 years old guy called, Josh Groban, could stand in for him. The woman, Celine Dion, did not like the solution but […]

I am a good book reader. I visit a bookstore at least once a week. I also enjoy buying all types of bookmarks and separators. I had an idea as I was preparing the details for one of my speaking assignments to be held at an international meeting in Milan, Italy. To be remembered by […]

Choosing a hospital

Before an operation I had some time ago, my doctor asked me to choose one of the possible three hospitals he used for his operations. Answering such a question is impossible if, especially like me, you don’t know much about the medical world. I didn’t even know which criteria to use for such a decision. […]

New models, old wants

An excerpt from economist.com dated Oct 24th 2015 (From the print edition): “New companies also exploit new technology, which enables them to go global without being big themselves.

Difficulty of first contact

You see someone in a social meeting and your inner voice tells you that you have to get acquainted with this person. I don’t know if you would prefer to silence your inner voice or go directly to this person and introduce yourself in such a situation. ☺ What I know: in order to discuss […]

Bonnie&Clyde

I am sure quite a number of you have seen the movie. It is about the life of Bonnie Elizabeth Parker (1910 – May 23, 1934) and Clyde Chestnut Barrow (1909 – May 23, 1934), who were well-known American outlaws. Their reputation was cemented in American pop folklore by Arthur Penn’s 1967 film Bonnie and […]

Old problem. New solution.

During the Thanksgiving break I wanted to visit a friend of mine in another city in USA when I was studying at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. The easiest -and the cheapest- option for travelling was to go to Norris University Center and look for any announcements on the big billboard for suitable rides. And […]
