Kornblumenblau: Dutch text.
Author: Jan Cremer was born in 1940 and since then, like the proverbial cat, he has lived seven or nine lives at 100.000 volts. Globetrotting journalist, writer and planetary reporter, painter and graphic artist, man of letters, theatre and film maker: this existential freebooter lives at least seven lives at the same time, and note that I call him a freebooter, not a pirate; Jan Cremer has earned his letter of marque with flying colours, and it would be too easy and unjust to call him a professional provo or godless, guiltless adventurer. His love of art guarantees his love of mankind.
