Really, Steven, you did it again. Consider your story marked from top to bottom. ‘Why are you chuckling all the time?’ my wife said. ‘I cannot help it, it’s Steven’, I exclaimed with a choking voice. ‘Not Allan this time?’ ‘No, Steven!’ (I mention Allan to keep you sharp, you know. He has the same effect on me as you, and he inspired me to start writing the Trumped up American Songbook. You inspire me too, but I think it is lame to start responding to your great work with the same irreparably improved lyrics.)

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