Unforgettable Sulitzer

If I were ever told, a couple of weeks ago, that I would meet Paul-Loup Sulitzer and be able to ask him for his support, I just wouldn’t have believed it.

I was aware though, that Sulitzer had quarters somewhere in Brussels, but I didn’t know where. And simply put, the very idea of meeting him just didn’t really occur to me.

This was until three weeks ago, when I incidentally bumped into an old friend of mines, a rap singer, Benny. I was with my son Zackie, and the three of us went to have an ice cream in a famous coffee shop. A couple of days later, Benny called me: « Marc, you know that exactly one week later, my friend Paul-Loup showed up in the same coffee shop. And since I’ve known him for a long time, we chatted around a cup and I told him about you. Do you want to meet him? ». « Are you kidding me », I said !?

On July 21, 2017, the Belgian national feast day, it was noon sharp. I would park my car down Paul-Loup’s apartment, and pick them up, him and his assistant, Supriya, to have a unforgettable lunch (unforgettable for me to the least!).

Our lunch lasted till later than 16 PM.

I could say a lot of things about what I learnt on that very day, from this genuine globe trotter, close to so many stars and icons, but above all, I was deeply touched by the simplicity and genuineness of the man.

The next day, July 22, which turned out to be Sulitzer’s birthday, I would go again to his dwelling and give him a copy of my book « The Quest of the Mecha-Soul – Vol 1 – The Tenth ».

Five days later, Paul-Loup called me. He’d read ten pages and was hooked… He’ll read it till the end, and then let me know what we could do.
