Berlin bikes, bureaucracy and a movie of our 'hood

I'm interested in just about everything. That can be distracting (if I had a brain-cam on just this morning's Web-surfing session, it would yield a pretty shaky, erratic movie). But it's also why I've pursued journalism: It allows me to indulge my curiosity and constantly learn about new things. When we moved to Berlin two months ago, it was like being dipped in a big vat of newness. Everything is new, and challenging, and worth exploring. So, as of late my journalistic explorations have been somewhat dormant, giving way to my more personal explorations, some of which can be found over at my other blogs: gin and gelato and Burning Sunflowers. I've even delved into a bit of video production. Feel free to check it out.

  1. Hi Jonathan,

    I'm a friend/acquaintance of Ray Ring's and moved to Berlin from Bozeman with my family 2 months ago. I have a blog too -- -- and am hoping to do some freelance writing while we are here. I've dabbled in writing in the past but now that I am not teaching at MSU, I'm hoping to get more serious about it. Are you writing for a publication here? What brought you to Berlin?

    We came here because my husband got a job teaching at the John F. Kennedy School. We have 3 kids, ages 12, 11, and 6. We are thrilled to be here and have not had a moment of boredom since we arrived. My email address is in case you want to get in touch.

    P.S. I met Ray when I served on the editorial board with him for the Bozeman Chronicle (comical) -- what a gas that was!
