Bernd drove a train. He did his job well, was punctual, worked late when necessary and never complained. He had worked in this job for twenty years, never expressing dissatisfaction or desire to change.
Bernd, however, had an obsession.
Hi lifelong dream was to make a solid silver bust of Marilyn Monroe.
He had, decades previously, attended classes to learn how to work with metals. He had finished making the mould ten years previously and for eighteen years he had been collecting pieces of second hand silver jewellery.
He believed it would take just ten more years to have enough.
