I am an artistFilmmaker
I speak my mind and fight my fights
I have opinions and I say them
Nothing has changed since I was born
Sometimes I just have to shout out that I am not a sheep
I don’t care what others do
I do what I want and that is all.
I don’t play any other way or I would not be me!
I studied pre law and of course that was not the game for me..,
No justice there
I went back to what I always had been
Winning writing competitions since the age of 12…
I just changed my storytelling vehicle when I went into film… But I am over it and back to writing
Always makes me a bit ‘Virginia Woolf’ when I get back to writing as my creative outlet 🙂
We need not fear a future elimination of the book. On the contrary, the more that certain needs for entertainment and education are satisfied through other inventions, the more the book will win back in dignity and authority. If today the ability to read is everyone’s portion, still only a few notice what a powerful talisman has thus been put into their hands. The child proud of his youthful knowledge of the alphabet first achieves for himself the reading of a verse or a saying, then the reading of a first little story, a fairy tale, and while those who have not been called seem to apply their reading ability to news reports or to the business sections of their newspapers, there are a few who remain constantly bewitched by the strange miracle of letters and words (which once, to be sure, were an enchantment and magic formula to everyone). From these few come the readers. They discover as children the few poems and stories … and instead of turning their backs on these things after acquiring the ability to read they press forward into the realm of books and discover step by step how vast, how various and blessed this world is!
And for every true reader this endless world of books looks different, everyone seeks and recognizes himself in it… A thousand ways lead through the jungle to a thousand goals, and no goal is the final one; with each step new expanses open.
