Dear Everybody, Saturday, 19th of September, 18:00h, Studio 2 (CNDB)

Dear Everybody,

Lately I discovered that I am more under the influence of events and people who are absent to me than of events and people who are present. I accept this, and will not try change. However, I feel the need to address this situation.

Sincerely yours
Brynjar Bandlien
