Our final destination was a very pleasant little place quite near the lake in an old shopping arcade next to what is now the casino of Lugano. The place was full and bustling, but we had booked and so we went straight in and were led to our table.
Month: July 2018
On the evening, we arranged to meet up and from there go on together to a Mexican restaurant in downtown Lugano. When I got to the prearranged rendezvous she was not alone, but with a friend. A female friend. The mad lawyer.
She had said several times over the course of months that she wanted to invite me to dinner sometime, and I in reply would say, ‘Yes, yes.’ And smile, and go on with what we were doing hoping she would forget.
I think probably Lina had come to the conclusion that she was in reality wasting her time trying to learn English. She may well have had many talents, but alas English was not one of them.
As you know, I am a musician, and at that time I had been subscribing to an English music magazine Future Music for several years, which I had sent by post. Nothing strange. It’s a monthly publication and in just about every issue there would be competitions.
Lotteries Rob’s Hypnosis VIP | Youtube | Facebook | Twitter | Amazon | iTunes | I was, and to a large degree, still am cynical about many things. I don’t think that I’m easily taken in, not normally anyway, and when I met and got to know Lina, my witch as I thought of her, …
I’ve really no idea how much Lina affected RS and his way of working and living or indeed thinking, but evidently not all that shines is gold, as they say. I’ve no idea if his conference was a success or not, nor even which swanky Mercedes model he finally plumped for. I lost touch with him and his group; as I did so also eventually with Lina.
When we were supposed to be having our weekly lessons invariably the phone would go intermittently, I would become invisible (to her at least) and she would chat away without any apparent inhibition.
But something which surprised me was, a little, that when I spoke to people about this kind of thing (Lina and her wacky ideas) many were sympathetic to this kind of thinking or approach. In fact on one occasion when I was going into her place, I met a friend’s wife coming out. Strange. Yes, very strange.
