If we were to take clerkmanifesto as a novel, playing out in real time, this would be me ruining the surprise. We are soon off to Copenhagen. But this is not a novel, it is real life. And whither I go, there goeth clerkmanifesto, one way or another.
Why Copenhagen? You wonder.
Well I'd go anywhere with my wife.
But since this is somewhere in particular, you may wonder, why Copenhagen?
Ah. As the greatest of all Danish writers, Hans Christian Andersen, once said, "Travelling expands the mind rarely."
"I don't understand." You might say. I certainly would if I were you.
No problem. I think this should take care of everything:
"Just living is not enough." Said the butterfly. "one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower."
Is that more Hans Christian Andersen?" You wonder.
Yes. Yes it is.
"It's nice, but I'm still a bit murky on the whole thing."
"To travel is to live."
Hans Christian Andersen said that.
"Like the pastry?" You wonder.
Wait, I'm confused. No, not so much like the pastry.
"Oh, okay." You say. Or maybe it's me who says that. But you're still kind of curious, despite everything, why, in particular, Copenhagen?"
They have an amusement park.
"I see. Why didn't you just say so."
I'm very shy.
