I remember Wujek Wojtek just as he appears in this signature photo….a charming smile with a hint of mischief. I am so fortunate to remember him exactly this way. But now, more than ever, I realize how true the saying ‘looks can be deceiving’ is. That smile and nonchalant demeanor disguised a growing anguish the seed of which was sewn during those early, fragile years when a human being can either be made or broken. Nevertheless, Wujek’s inherent love of life and a longing for happiness kept him afloat - he loved, played music, sang, cooked delicious meals... I could never get over the fact how his version of ‘Let it Be’ he taught me on the piano sounded so much better than when I would play it...
