We have the present but can't deny the past.We can't guess the future.
I gathered my beliefs from our revolution,and the dead Partisans who believed in it.And my uncles.
Who would I be without them.They are alive in me.
My very first novel is callded 'Shadow Partisan'.
Without that past, erased,who would I be coming here at 15 ?
A sad lost girl who would only buy things and things
for any joy.
I am glad that I remembered our Partisans.
I am glad as well that I never became 'a real'
American.International is my identity.
