Journey toward our friends that are here no more

with 3 comments

Today JeanChristophe Couet, Jure Breceljnik and myself we visited of graves of Blaž and Tina. They were our friends and we studied together at FAMU, Prague. Blaz commit suicide in 2001 and Tina two years later. Today we went to visit their graves. It was really long drive of 460 km. But in our conversation we traveled longer, much longer distances. So many emotions vividly spring from the past. Most of them were funny, some sad. Blaž was my roommate in Prague. He was very passionate person and very similar to me. Except I never tried any drugs. I just knew I would not stop.

then we drove to Maribor and although I don’t eat meat (except fish), we choose McDonalds for the sake of student times. We didn’t know where Tina’s graveyard is, so we were looking for more then half an hour and when we were just checking last rows, JC found it.

It was a great journey, one of many. We drove so many times with Jure’s Zastava 101 and Blaž’s Clio from Lj to Prague. HERE are some old pics. We were listening Nick Cave for Blaž and Shade for Tina. So many memories drawn from the past are like puzzle pieces. And however they seam random and chaotic they do fit together! And looking with a prism of time distance I would dare to say they do make sense.
