Today sone of us had to leave Rome and fly back to their home cities. It feels like being back at Mr. and Mrs. Darling’s House in London - returning from a trip to Neverland.
We all knew it would be awesome, we all knew we would have a fun time and meet a bunch of happy, noisy, creative and extremly awesome persons. But in the end it was even better.
I met a bunch of wonderful people full of life and energy and for a few days, having a good time was all that mattered. They showed me that you can never be too old to build a castle out of blankets and bedding (and yeah, they actually built one!) and how good it feels to sit in it (it felt better than i can tell). That evening I felt a bit like Wendy surrounded by the Lost Boys ( in this case more girls than boys). Even though now one was dressed like a fox, a badger or a bear, the always visible sock monkey hats did their part as well.
So in the end Gishwhes maybe was not so much about winning and having pasta with Misha Collins but more about diving into a world where everything is possible (there were no Pirates, though. next year there definitely should be pirates!).
Just kidding. actually it IS about winning!
Just not solely.
Thank you team 83, thank you lucky bastards, thank you Misha, Jean Louis and Tracy and all the other great people.
i found neverland.
And I have plans to return to it next year!
This was beautiful! I completely agree (and you actually made Rabea cry, so…)
Love you all!!! *Group hug*
