Another note for D could have more conspicuously been dedicated to Drawing. As I have always drawn, and everywhere.
As many others do, when attending a meeting or a conference I fill the borders of any page with doodles.
Sometimes there was reference to politics,
other times with feelings
or any other subject
In some cases sketches made it to the text, as in language lessons
or sometimes, I singled out some scribble for some reason, ready to use.

Often they were, and are faces
And the advent of colours added a lot
The new technologies represented a jump forward, both for the actual drawing
but also for the possibility to scan the handmade drawing and treat them digitally, adding text
or producing new products
I soon created my own logo
to be replicated in many of my later productions.
At a certain point, I started drawing in a more structured way, using an Indian ink pen for the main line and small pencils (Japanese ones) for the colours.
That way, I had souvenirs, from several places and countries; I especially remember some drawing from Budapest with locally acquired pastels.
