All loose ends are slowly coming together. The last technical, financial and incomprehensible matters concerning my film project are being solved. I’m polishing the final irregularities in my new novel. I’m handing over my private archives about Dogtroep to the Dutch Theatre Instituut and I’m talking with the people in Shanghai to hop over next month to prepair a project for 2007. All these projects I’m involved in are circling around me. I feel surrounded by an oppressive calm before the cyclones, hurricanes and tornados burst through – or will it remain calm?
