“If you are ill,” philosopher NIETZSCHE said: “that’s good, because you then have time enough to look back.” 1960, aged 15, I had my first dancing lessons and dates. Often heard: “Alley Oop” by “The Hollywood Argyles”, that was a number one hit in 1960. “Alley Oop” of French “allez-hop” means:”… an exhortation or to signal the start of an activity. ” (Anu Garg). As I laid down ill in my bed, this song came in my mind – and the optimism of HARRY, the traveler dog. For me & all other ill friends out there: let’s grab some optimism to rise up again!
