No one and nothing can ever change the past. If our lives follow a pre-determined course or if the path we are taking is of our own making we will never know. I pity the one who has not been living life to the fullest. I also pity the ones who destroy their lifes, for they will never know what they are missing.
I would not want to change one little thing. The glorious range of emotions from fear and terror to unsurpassed passion and love, from a sheltered and secure life to dispair and poverty, to the years of discovery, both of the world and myself, I have lived a rich life. The choice has always been mine. Right or wrong I have no one to blame for anything I have done, except myself. Of this I am immensely proud.
The memories, both haunting and beautiful, that have been part of my life will go with me. A very limited snapshot of them is now documented for anyone to share.
Having been born into an incomprehensible world at total war, I have always fought for my independence. I never have nor ever will tolerate interference with what I am doing at any time. I will continue to follow that path for as long as I live.
