Life, death and taxes... God is in her world (sometimes called Heaven) and all's right with our world. Well, yes and no. It's good to report new life. Dan and Suwy have Emma, Malgosio Pioro & Andrzej Kraus have twin boys (and Andrzej has an exhibition in London), and Sarah Hardie has a daughter, Fiona. Dear old friend Carlos Clarens has left life. At the tender age of 56 years young, a heart attack has cut him down.
I pause to telephone Jeffrey Kime to confirm C.C.'s
age and Jeffrey reports that he and his wife Eliwabethm are expecting
a child in April. Life and death, the cycle continues... On Monday 9th
of March, some of C. C.'s friends gathered in the Cinematheque Francaise
to give tribute to his memory. It was a loving event. Jeffrey Kime and
Elizabeth were there, also Edith and Pierre Cottrell, Richard Roud, Pascale
Dauman, Annabel Herbout, Isabelle Weingarten, Agnes Varda and many, many
more. Excerpts from Varda's "Lion's Love" are screened, and
Carlos is "alive" before us. Big as life, as he always was.
Tales are related and letters read. I wander out, alone, in the cold Paris
night. I ponder our last meeting, in October '86, when we talked a long
time on the telephone and promised each other to meet together again in
La Coupole "real soon" - just like in the old days. Alas it
is not to be. I could not find his last letter to read to everyone, but
today it was uncovered under a large "to answer" pile and is
reproduced for all of you fortunate enough to have shared him and for
those of you who did not.
Better hugs than hugs as Ewa Krygier suggests in a letter received today. Yes! Jim
