My partner

24 years ago,

the uncle of my close friend made me

this bag to keep a sketchbook

I took this with me anywhere I went

I travelled with it by bicycle and hitch-hike, even went on around-the-Earth trip.

I have finished and changed the sketchbook several times.

In a strange town, the scenery I saw for the first time, on the bus, in my tent…

At different moments I took it out quickly and opened it.

It also served as an amulet

I have such feeling

My partner!
