Women approach me with suspicion and men walk away, having misunderstood me. Occasionally someone is intrigued, but they are a precious few: foreigners, or those whose kindness is detrimental to their own well-being. People don’t approve of me, beginning with my name. “Alice? Are you being snooty because you happen to know a little English?”

A writer- and , I believe, generally all persons- must think that whatever happens to him or her is a resource . All things have been given to us for a purpose, and an artist must feel more intensely. All that happens to us, including our humiliations, our misfortunes , our embarrassments , all is given to us as raw material, as clay, so that we may shape our art." ~ Jorgeluis Borges ( 1889-1996)
