At this particular meeting of ours, the column will fall silent. After the double shock of last September, this is not the time to talk of cabbages and kings. The column will ask you, its regular readers, to do the same. Just for a little while. Let us remember some moments together with Neoklis and Michalis and warm our hearts before the final goodbye.

So let us join our silence for as long as we read these lines, knowing that some others will be here, on this page, at pretty much the same time we received the magazine. The power of silence may produce a voice, even if it is only a single word, a farewell from all of us to two very dear and special friends.
