It was a very emotional day. Alongside Mario C. Bauer and accompanied by a huge teddy bear I visited St Annes Hospital in Vienna to give the last copies of the book I had written in collaboration with Mario and a cheque, bigger than the teddy bear, for 10,000€.
We were given a tour of the hospital where, on two of the wards, I told the tale of the Cockerel who loses all he has to a greedy king. But, of course, he gets its back by never giving up and simply being himself. A very Zen story!
I was deeply touched and privileged to have met those children, their parents and the wonderful people who care for them at such difficult times. Once again I went to tell a simple story and returned a different person.
