I’ve known him since we were six years old, my friend Sweis. It’s an uncommon name even for the Dutch. This picture is from 1988 when we went on a holiday together on our pushbikes.
And I would walk 500 more. Ok, maybe I won’t do exactly that though but only because I am physically incapable of walking that far.
I am now back home and I’m playing this The Proclaimers CD I once bought in England when I was young. It reminds me of good times and it makes me happy.
I can’t help myself but other than most people my favourite subject is Autumn, specifically Autumn in England. I have no logical explanation for this, maybe it has something to do with a how I felt decades ago living in Old Hall in England. Then again, Autumn in this place is equally wonderful and happy.
Looking back at the past weeks it is nothing less than a miracle that I haven’t gone insane and it’s only for some very dear friends that I haven’t.
Ok, that might sound a little dramatic but it’s true.
