A place in Børge's little black notebook.
One day in the beginning of the 70's I looked in on Børge on Admiral Street and got a chock! He had just hung a Jorn - adaptation on one of his glossy white walls.
It was the blue Italian moonlit atmosphere, "Nocturne" from the close of the 1950's. An idyll which becomes threatened by Jorn's roaring and quacking demonic monster!
It is a magnificent picture which my wife and I still continue to be the proud owners of. And thank be to Børge for that. Børge had instantaneously noticed that my heart was not only touched, but pierced as well, by that painting, when he found himself saying the usual provocatory and challenging words: "By it!" "I can't even enter THAT ballpark, are you out of your mind, Børge!", I said in my attempt to get him to just let things be.
However, Børge countered with, "why of course you can do it! You pay whenever you have a couple of sawbucks, which you want to turn over to Børge!".
Be that as it may -- and as you probably already have figured out -- I then took the picture along home with me, having been written down in a little black notebook, where I continued to stand for a good couple of years.
Nearly any one of Børge's many art clients and customers very easily could have "laid cold cash" on him, bit his feeling was that I should have it! Even if there were pauses between "those sawbucks!".
