Don't let anyone rob you of your imagination, your creativity, or your curiosity. It's your place in the world; it's your life. Go on and do all you can with it, and make it the life you want to live.— Mae Jemison

When you live alone you no longer know what it is to tell a story: the plausible disappears at the same time as the friends.
