Beautiful, Tre! Nina Simone has been part of our life since we heard her for the very first time back in the sixties. ‘We’ being my wife and me. My wife knows all the songs by heart and often sings lines of her. So well deserved and well written, your ode. Nina is sitting in a rocking chair in the hall of our heart with the other great ladies of jazz — Ella, Betty, Sarah and Billy.

Friend of life and beauty and foe of spoilers of life and beauty. Golden marriage. Grandfather. Pianist and micro poet. Dutch, European.
