“Every day I send Lucia a photograph of myself. 
Sometimes the shot will include a recent 
newspaper to prove that is up to date. Just 
lately I’ve started travelling around the world. 
Sobbing, I’ll ask a fellow tourist to photograph 
me at Golden Gate Bridge, the Acropolis, or 
the mud-palaces of Mali, and in every shot I’m 
visibly distraught. She said she was sure I’d get 
over it in time, but I know I never will; that no 
matter where I go, all I will ever really see is 
her lovely guilty face telling me she had found 
somebody new.
