It has been too long.
I have been in London for quite some time. Menial work. The people at the Schengen Office are sometimes clueless, which is fine. I hear stories from old men about the "good times" at the height of the cold war when movies glorified our work and anecdotes about pulling concealed messages out of the carcasses of dead rats. Their stories about the local girls only hold my interest temporarily. But I prefer their stories about the hot war. If only the world could still open up for me like that.
I found myself in a toy store of all places the other day and saw a model of a Me 262 Schwalbe and thought of you.
Write when you can. I can only hope that one of us has accomplished something in these last few months.
