For Ben

Land of Heart's Desire
Where beauty has no ebb, decay no flood,
But joy is wisdom. Time an endless song.

W.B. Yeats






You remember Macik in very special ways. I will always remember you for allowing me to put my head on your lap and cry my heart out on 21 Sept 1982 - the day my beloved brother departed.

Don't worry about yesterday's accounts - we still have many (?), several (?) tomorrows.
Welcome back to our Universe. This time, don't stay away too long.

P.S. Help Lely, how did I get 2 videos?

wow, was that me? Adidas Rome, too! I'd always thought I would own and drive a station wagon just like the one you had back then. Was this in 77, Miss Hamid?

Pickled Herring is the other woman leaning on your shoulder.

You're still a dreamer - and we allowed you to cheat otherwise you'll throw a tantrum when you lose.

Well as Mus puts it, it's like the Gathering of the Eagles!!

And can we have a picture of your family? Promise we won't reveal your secrets - at a price.
