Listen: This post has come unstuck in time. Poo-tee-weet.
Since February 7, 1921… seems like it’s been a century.
From the first, at the last, who would have imagined?
From the beginning, would he have imagined?
First, he was a fan.
We see glimpses, perhaps a trajectory.
As a fan, an editor and evolving artist.
After the war… a changed man. Art as a career.
By then, we might have guessed.
A man of faith.
A First Fan.
And ever a fan. Happy 100th, JVB!
