... no more!! This is the true story of an enigma resolved...
An anonymous ex-student of mine put this FANTASTICALLY adequate
drawing of me in my pigeon hole. (The details, six arms, green skin
and the exaggerated hair length, are due to a linguistic task I used
to give my students.) I had never seen such a spot-on depiction of myself!
For those of you who don’t know me, or haven’t endured my lectures,
I hereby inform you that this is the very spitting image of me indeed!
I desperately tried to find out who the artist was, and spent hours trying to
match the handwriting on the little post-it note that came with the picture with
registration cards and assignments... but in vain. Ever since, the drawing has
been hanging on the wall in my home, and for two years I had a “Wanted”
page on my homepage in an attempt to track down the said artist. And... after two
years, I received an email from her! (I invited her to a Thai restaurant in Stockholm,
where we discussed The Canadian sci-fi series
among other things.)
