The Krakow Diaries

75 days in Krakow. On a literary grant from the German Kulturstiftung der Länder. In the Guesthouse of the 16th century Villa Decius, with 10 other writers from Poland, Germany, Belarussia, Ukraine and Georgia. Beautiful city. Nice Krakovians. Fun nightlife. Beautiful women. And in the guesthouse: Meetings of the minds. Too much vodka. Good friends. One of the great pleasures of my life.

Day #47: Thursday, Nov. 2: The Katja Murder Mystery Continues

Something about Katja's murder bothered me. It just didn't feel right. When no one was looking, I investigated, looking through her room for clues. I found this. It's her pillow. She had been sleeping on this all the time, and didn’t know it, because it was wrapped in a white pillow case. No wonder she was tortured by strange nightmares and inexplicable visions. Did someone put this inside her pillow case on purpose, when she wasn't looking? Was it some kind of curse put on her, a Polish version of a voodoo doll? I may never know.
