Inge Kritoffersen, colleague and friend, was a personality, unlike the indifferent pack of grey wolves who roam endlessly in the corridors of the foreign ministry in Brussels.

She had her ups and downs but was never under. Her judgements could be sardonic, her culture overriding, but boredom and platitudes were alien to her.

She represented a mindset wherein most sins could still be forgiven, as long as there remained enough room for irony and contrition.

For sure, she looked and sounded "generational."  Besides the sadness for the loss, there is also some nostalgia for the times wherein cultural references ruled over global opportunism.
