Thanks

I think that my main and most developed capacity is not drawing. I am thankful to God (or nature, as it is convenient to be an agnostic) that I was given from above this capacity to see the good in people and not to notice the evil. And more than that, I was lucky that they paid me back with the same. I was lucky with people. I consider I was unbelievably lucky with good people. I have been lucky and am more and more lucky with every passing year. If I mentioned all the people I've met there wouldn't be any place left for my pictures in this book. I can't remember all of them, but I'll try to mention those to whom I am particularly thankful, people without whose help the appearance of this book would be impossible:
