This was the summer sunshine football the Dutch will be in the World Cup finals show. Not to praise or celebrate the day but rather mark it as something special at least. There was insanity among some in the world, in the country, in the hearts… Orange – there are uglier colors. In general the connotations with orange seem … Sunny. Strange how people live in these strange other worlds, worlds that you never touch, speaking languages we do not understand or even care to. That the human expends so much useless or even destructive energy as if consistently – in youth – defying the very concept of mortality and as you age you withdraw from self-destuctive behavior, have a kid and you become even more careful and even more aware of how careless people are. You redouble your efforts to become healthy, stay that way, avoid aches and pains… I always thought it a strange twist of fate how the young kid will race across the street oblivious to the precarious nature of life and careless with the responsibility of all those years yet to live as if it all means nothing. And then there is the 80-yr-old little lady crossing so carefully as if to preserve a whole lifetime yet ahead, guarding that little reserve of days with more enthusiasm than the boy…
