Thank you so much for sharing this life account about Mr. Grega. He sounds like an interesting as well as a wonderful man. He was able to do what he loved for a vocation. He also gave to others what he loved and had learned in life. At the same time not trying to charge people so much that they couldn't afford his services. It is obvious ( by your accounting of his history ) that he had, at times, a difficult life; a very hard life. And yet he was magnanimous, too. Thank you so much for bringing this to us - it is refreshing to hear about people like Mr. Grega. Wafna, you are fortunate to know a man of this nature, and he is lucky to have a friend as yourself.
If your out-go is more than your income,
Then your up-keep.
May be your Down-falll!!!

Thank you very much for this story.
I visited Krakow twice as a tourist - what a beautiful and well preserved city center. No wonder that so many historical movies are filmed there.
Maybe next time I visit I have a chance to visit his shop :-)

Thanks very much for sharing Mr. Grega's story with us. Sounds like a fascinating person. It is unfortunate that he has no one to apprentice under him, as he must have a wealth of knowledge of pen repair after all these years that should be passed on.
