To break this intense solitude, Jan and I had dinner at his place. A soothing moment with my old friend. How many years already? Twenty two!!!
We compared our current life situation. We discussed our parents’ legacy. The past should no longer have any influence on our present. What is it that we still drag this burden of misery on our shoulders? He played me sketches of new songs of his. They’re irresistible. He’s really finding his path now. His music is getting greater and greater. Gone are the gospel years and the lousy jobs he had to accept as an accompanist. His last concerts were excellent and it’s just the beginning.
