Rob Nanninga, The Lion, Only Conquered By Love

Since you left, Rob, Lion, I have seen you in my mind's eye while I was cycling. I saw you standing on the side of the road, casually leaning against trees, smiling at me. I felt you, 'sitting' on my rear bicycle rack, enjoying the ride too, while you held and kissed my right hand that I held behind my back, while you hugged me from behind in joy. I saw you while you colored a rainbow in the sky for me. While my bike sped forwards, I felt you kissing me as the brilliant, flashing beams of sunlight passed through my eyelids. 

And I had so many of out-of-body experiences in 2014, the year you went away. I will tell more about it.

Bésame mucho

Besame, besame mucho,
Como si fuera esta noche la última vez,
Besame, besame mucho,
Que tengo miedo a perderte, perderte despues [twice]

Quiero sentirte muy cerca mirarme en tus ojos verte junto a mí
Piensa que tal vez mañana yo ya estare lejos, muy lejos de ti
Kiss me a lot

Kiss me, kiss me a lot,
As if tonight were the last time
Kiss me, kiss me a lot,
For I'm scared to lose you, to lose you afterwards

I want to feel you very close, see myself in your eyes, see you near me
Think that maybe tomorrow I'll already be far, very far away from you

Since I was a baby, I loved stuffed animals, to this day. This love has a tragic side. When I lost one, I could cry for hours, days, weeks... Inseperable as with very best friends of flesh and blood.

Besides hug bunnies I had a hug lion, orange with long manes, something like this, but more sophisticated:

Hello everybody. 

I promise to write a blog soon, but something has come up, and I hope Google will work its magic again.

After the very sad and recent passing on May 30, 2014 of my very precious friend Rob Nanninga, there is this Wikipedia article in the making (look here)...

His faithful friend Jan Willem Nienhuys - of the Dutch Skeptic Foundation - wrote this 'In Memoriam':

In Memory of Rob Nanninga

On May 30, 2014, skeptic Rob Nanninga, founding member of Skepsis in the Netherlands, and editor-in-chief of its periodical Skepter, died aged 58. No one else had so much influence on Skepsis, both by setting an example and by his method of work.
