Dear Regina,

since our last meeting in the features section has passed some time. I have the printed photo of you immediately pulled out carefully, as certain as the flag of memory of this moment, which brought me to a nearly forgotten abyss. You must know that I have lost the ability to cry for some reason in the young. Perhaps the idea of what to do with the finiteness of the universe, what is known to be infinite, even probably, is proliferating and makes us so wonderful subjects appear puny. I was aged around eleven as I came up this idea. Initially plagued by Tagesalbträumen and reported a fear of his own death, now smeared a layer of worries and sexuality experienced the difference between me and what I knew from then on as the world. Previously, both were yes, the world and subject, congruent with each other. In defense of the subject I am separating them since then, with some attempt to assert myself in this world so far that they feel reasonably own. At the same time I developed a now mature compulsion to control, the pursuit of Autononmie (self determination) and a defensive attitude for me they have placed in write-ups, whereas me a career in the civil employees milieu to date in some way was that not in turn means that I could escape it as it were the lower middle class. Our or rather my encounter with your figure, which was created two years before their deportation broke, for a moment the layer, which protects me from the woods, just from Sun To personally thank you for it would be grotesque. So please understand that you do not exhibition devoted to it as such. I've only been wrong in the mirror and made the pictures more to give betrayed by my vanity as a look into the depth of the moment.
