  • Since I was very little I used to sleep with a little light near my bed.I was so scare of the darkness of the night invading my room. I was just a little girl with the mind full of monsters of the fairy tales. As I grew up I kept the light next to me.I guess the little girl was still inside me.I remember my fears as a child and I am amazed that these fears just change with age but they never go.The monsters of childhood disappeared and are replaced by other monsters called loneliness,rejection,betrayal and the little light stays every night in my room bringing peace to my tormented soul.
