Another great sketch. You make it look so easy.

well, it's certainly not difficult. a friend, who has just moved to trondheim, was non-stop talking through the loudspeaker on my mobile phone while my fork scooped up mackerel with cherry tomatoes in virgin olive oil. unfortunately some drops of liquid dripped here and there because i tried simultaneously to alternate between doodling and surfing the net. listen, today i've been up in the mountains, a place called gudbrandsjuvet, with some people i know. so very hot. one of them wanted to take a picture of me so i said ok just this once - then it was sent to 'messenger' (see below). sometimes i think i'm living in the garden of eden. came home half an hour ago, neighbour had put two large bottles of home-made beer outside my door. he does that sometimes, very nice man, a real water walker - so i've put them in the fridge for later tonight. the alcohol content is usually about 7%, he says. hey, guess what! yes, a very special guest is coming soon all the way up to this isolated place to see me. isn't that great! you know the person, you all know the person - but we've agreed to keep it quiet. anyway, i have to go now because there's lots of things to do. :-)

How handsome you look Geoffrey :D You look very well.
My guess for your mystery guest would be Jarkko. ;-)

if so, due to the photographer's skill - i would wager.

It's either Jarkko or a surprise return visit by Leonard Cohen. I speak with cofnidense.

I think the Björn Borg look works really well for you, Geoffrey. 15-love!

when the person comes, they can maybe not do so much with my arithmomania affliction, probably too deep-seated, but maybe the facial tic that comes on more strongly in times of stress - so that i can better mix with people without them glaring. i was planning to go to the leonard cohen event in budapest, but after family intimidation and mental abuse from december to june it became so much worse and i don't dare. it was good to be up in the mountains with nature where one doesn't have to worry about appearances. leonard looked after me for a good length of time, put his arms around me. last time i saw him he waved goodbye from the back of a car. now he's gone, i am old and alone, and miss him being just a few seconds away :-(

picture taken without my knowledge a short while ago as i talked to someone.
