This tearful little jewel was most certainly painted in the family dorms in Students’ Town (as was the previous work). I was basically on my own in the room, for obvious reasons, since my wife was in the Czech Republic and came back maybe twice – the second time it became clear that things weren’t going well at all. Apparently I comforted myself with such sentimental compositions (I think there was a lonely wife somewhere on the same floor doing the same thing).
