find much scope for exercisting my talents in that direction, whereas
thousands of people are always queuing up for the anti-treatment. In
fact I'm so out of practice as a probody, that I dare say I have lost

I will try to continue this NOTEBOOK | NOTITIEBOEK, if my eyes and my
health and my
circumstances permit, and have made it because it is considerably
easier for me to
edit and maintain.
It also looks a bit different: it lacks the current background image,

I stand with my face to a wall,
leaning on my elbows above my head against it, bow my head backwards,
