Elky New Year's Card for 2016

A Happy New Year 2017 to all of you out there!

May you meet your challenges bravely!

Sometimes live looks like an arena. Indeed you have to fight sometimes to achieve your goals. But do remember: This is also a playground! A smile often goes a longer way than brute force (and a cheesy line ist often stickier than some sophisticated adivce. Need proof? Here we go: “Ridentem dicere verum quid vetat?” – You’re welcome!:-D)

Drop me a line!

So what’s one thing you want to achieve in the upcoming year? Let me know in the comments below! (BTW: Science says that a shared resultion is way more likely to be fulfilled. ;-))

Of course, you can just leave me a simple “hello” without a fancy resolution. That makes me happy, too!

Elky New Year's Card for 2016

A Happy New Year 2016 to all of you out there!

May there be light!

„Let your partner shine!“ is one of my favourite principles of improvised theatre (and I think I lived up to that one quite literally in 2015 ;-)). Hence, dare to let the people around you shine in 2016 – and surely, it will reflect back on you!

Drop me a line!

Start now, shine a light on some great artist that touched you in the last year and may inspire me – and others – in the upcoming one (youtube links are appreciated).

Of course, you can just leave me a simple comment. That makes me happy, too!

Happy New Year 2015

Elky New Year's Card for 2014

A Happy New Year 2015 to all of you out there!

May you find favourable winds!

I’d love to share some philosophical insights based on a highly sophisticated surf metaphor about how you should navigate happily through 2015, catching good waves rather than trying to find the perfect one etc etc.

But hey, there’s a party out there waiting for me to join in – so hang loose guys and let’s share some moments of happiness next year, too!

Drop me a line!

Of course, your comments below make me even happier! 🙂

Happy New Year 2014

Elky New Year's Card for 2014

A Happy New Year 2014 to all of you out there!

May your days be playful!

“All the world’s a stage”, someone said sometimes – so dare to play it As You Like It in 2014. Do take a little risk every now and then, play your life with joy and put your skills to good use doing so.

Sometimes, though, it pays to turn down the noise for a moment and ponder the shadows – for you might discover the silent fox (vulpes tacens vulgo “Schweigefuchs”), which has hidden somewhere in the picture above.

Find the silent fox and win a prize!

The first person to reveal, where the silent fox hides (either in the comments below or via email) wins a visit to an improvised theater show accompanied by THE ELK himself (and chosen so, too ;-)).
Good luck and be quick (like the brown fox ;-))!

Oh, your photos/vids doing the silent fox are very welcome, too! 😀

Drop me a line!

Of course, I appreciate just the usual heads up, too! So leave me a comment below! 🙂

Elky New Year's Card for 2013

A Happy New Year 2013 to all of you out there!

May there be a good spin to your life!

Sometimes life sucks and you feel caught in a vortex. But then the tables may turn and you find yourself on a good spin upwards. I do wish you a lot of energy propelling you towards your goals in 2013!

As always: I really appreciate your feedback, so leave me a comment below!

Happy New Year 2012

Elky New Year's Card for 2012

A Happy New Year 2012 to all of you out there!

May the sun outshine all your clouds!

… and to make 2012 even a bit happier for one of you, I’ve decided to start it with a competition (instead of those boring old resolutions):

Hidden in this picture is an activity that made the news in spring this year and  quickly spread across the web.

What’s this activity called?

Win a meet & greet with the elk (THE Elk, actually), plus, I’ll pay you a drink on the occasion, too!

Just post your guess in the comments (or send me an e-mail) – the first correct answer gets the prize.
NB: I may consider throwing in another drink for someone who posts a photo of themselves exercising this activity! 🙂

Again, enjoy 2012 and dare to have fun, sometimes!
