Bart – upbeat, at times deeply sad, popular with the ladies- was medically discharged at a young age, but nevertheless persisted in becoming a lecturer and never abandoned his passion for traveling.
„As a young man I only took short detours from normal life into sick life. Today, it’s vice versa:“
The roller coaster has caught up with him: from stumbling to hobbling, from rollator to wheelchair. From solid food to a feeding bag with tube leading directly tot he intestine. No more eating or drinking.
„There’s an assassin in my body for well over 50 years – a murderer, who is slowly but steadily destroying everything in me“. Even speaking and hearing. One day everything will stop working – the lungs, the heart: out, boom. But Bart takes his life as it is. Bart is not the disease. Bart is Bart.
