An email from a friend

Dear Andy, I have not forgotten our great discussion about an exhibition Oko štamgasta (I don't know other word than „barfly“, maybe you will know other one, in german it's der Stammgast).
If you think about the exhibition, here are some points as an inspiration:
Name:                     OKO ŠTAMGASTA
Motto of the exhibition:
...I see my father.
Where, my lord?
In my mind's eye, Horatio.
Shakespeare, Hamlet,, I/2
Eyes - soul
Eyes - gate
Eyes - puzzle
Eyes - door
Eyes - stars
Eyes - passion, fear, hope and desperateness, joy, sorrow...
About "štamgasts" we know everything: what kind of coffee do they drink, how many beers, which wine, šnaps, what place to sit do they like, what time are they comming and when they leave, which newspaper do they read, but eyes - gate to the soul - stay behind curtain of questions...

two good friends leaving for the US next month

                                                                                  Chase  Koliba winter 2015
                                                                              Darwin Koliba winter 2015
After 19 years in Slovakia my friend Chase is going home to his farm in Maine and he's taking Darwin his trusty canine. Darwin also known as 'D' or Dingo is part German Shepard and part wolf, we call him the last Carpathian dingo (posledny Karpatske dingo) Unlike any dog I"ve met Darwins favourite toy is a  coconut which he carefully carries around with him in the garden and never breaks it.
I will miss them both.
