  1. OMG, Has Walter left us? I have been reviewing memories and thought to find Walter. I remember him from 1982-83 when he was renting a house on Paros Island (Greece) . I would see him in the cafe’s or restaurants, and we’d share some time having a coffee. One day I was on my moped and stopped by at his house which was on the side of the road near to Paros Poros beach. I yelled up to him to see if he was home, and he came out. He asked if I wanted a coffee, and I told him I was just checking on him, that he’s OK. We talked for a while and then he remembered that he didn’t “save” his last writings on his little computer. He ran inside, and his screen was dark. His computer had shut down and erased all his writings from the morning. UGH! So sorry Walter.
