Retired since 2011, but still interested in consultancy, research, monitoring & evaluation, notably on the socio-cultural dimension of development and on African Affairs.
... last, but not least, visions for the third stage of my life:
- scholarly research & publishing
- research on my family history and migration
taiji chi, practised since about two decades, guided by my honoured taiji-teacher Daniel Grolle, co-founder of the German
taiji-network, who developed his own style of this traditional Chinese martial art and meditation, focusing on human interchange and transmitting the principles of taiji chi in everyday life
- pro-active engagement within my new residencial community "Torfwiesenau"
- trekking, cycling & sailing (cf. the 'Gallery' for details on our memorable Bahama sailing tour).
