My Berlin Wall

The most opportune thing about being a freelancer is the freedom it gives. Without the usual 9-5 limitations I make my own schedule. Without four walls of permanency I am fortunate enough to choose my own four walls which can be swapped daily/monthly/weekly.

With this in mind, no more than two months ago, I hoped on a plane destined for Berlin. I mean what other place would a music journo move to? Granted I picked October, November and December as my residency months and so like clock-work the weather became the least favourable aspect of my relocation.

Aside from the snowy outcome it was an amazing two and so months filled with discovery, reinvention and recreation. A hella of a lot of recreation. It's hedonistic reputation is as clear as the sky is blue on a Sunday morning when eager clubbers line-up to gain entry into mega-club Berghain. 9AM starts are the plat du jour!

I am more than prone to monologues; however, this is solely due to the manner in which they compliment a witty anecdote and their ability to resemble concrete evidence when it is so obviously lacking. I often wish I could emulate that aloof character who coolly stands in the corner smiling mysteriously as if she has a secret. However, I fear resisting the temptation to involve myself in other people’s conflicts and responding through body language rather than verbose banter may come across as contrived and arrogant. And, I am not willing to take that chance.

Ye Faithful
