Die Welt: Wie haben Sie den Tod Ihrer Frau überwunden?

Pogorelich: [...] Sie hatte alles, Herkunft, Erziehung, Schönheit, Talent und Freundlichkeit. Sie überstrahlte alles wie ein Komet. Man konnte mit ihr freilich nie ausruhen, sie war immer aktiv.

Selbst im Tod war sie noch die Prinzessin, als die sie geboren wurde.

Sie hatte Leberkrebs.

Als sie starb, explodierte die Leber und in ihrem letzten Kuss überschüttete sie mich mit schwarzem Blut. Ich sah aus wie das Phantom der Oper. Mein Haar war völlig verklebt. Ich wollte es nicht wegwischen. Und als man uns mit Champagner kondolierte, da war ich immer noch voll mit ihrem Blut. Aber jeder hat das verstanden. Das war wie bei Jackie Kennedy, die ihr mit dem Hirn ihres Mannes besudeltes Kostüm nicht wechseln wollte [...].

(Ivo Pogorelich interviewed about the death of his wife (et al.) by Die Welt)

INTERNA

i) Yes, I know... I haven't been answering your emails and/or comments lately. That's because I was on holidays for three weeks and currently have about 380 emails in the answering queue. Sorry about that.

ii) For very obscure nostalgic reasons, I bought a pair of Dr. Martens in the size that I had when I got my first pair on my 13th birthday. Sadly, they won't let me return nor exchange them. So if you're a size 5 (UK), this is your ultimate chance to get a pair of hardly worn classic 8-eyelet Docs for only $60. Actually, I'll make it $50 for you. Yay! Click here for details.

iii) Your advice on tattoo designs is needed here. Gracias.

    I love that bear and you are GORGEOUS!

    And I vote for Mexican skull in tattoo design.
    I still have yet to get a tattoo, I know what I ant but I feel I should spend my money on more important things, like canvas and daily needs. But when I get money!

    Dankeschön, Rafael. "Rumschauen" ist eigentlich eher die Maxime dieses Blogs denn "Verstehen".. ;)

    @Derek: Thank you soooooo much for your kind words. I love Bobo Bear too, it's just such a shame that so many babies puked over his belly in all those years. :(
