Although I have never met Lauren in the above picture, I am very delighted that she
is my collaborator. Many years before Lauren was born, I visited
for a few days. Nadia was doing her Japanese exams. She had to study
more complicated Chinese characters than even I didn't know. Her husband
Paul took me around the city. One place I remember visiting was the
south bank where we saw a show called "In the dark -
Spellbound:Art & Film" at the Hayward Gallery. I recall the
big installation by Peter Greenaway with live actors in glass cases.
We took a break and had a Capuchino, which was about 1.5 pounds. I was
surprised how big it was. Paul is the tallest man I have ever personally
known. I literally had to run beside him while he was walking so elegantly.
