I initially did not have strong opinion on the rotation model but the
more I think about it the less I like it.

I have never said I want to resign.

I would very much like to share it and I would very much be able to
take a break if needed and leave it in trusted hands. I need to be
prepared to give up authority if that ever will be needed.

I must admit I am not very comfortable with the thought of being forced
to completely giving up authority but I am open to discuss it and not
completely against it.

I will unlike sit and do nothing for a year so why would I want to get
back to the Alpine drama instead of continue with the new thing I'm
