  • Regarding the many facets a single place can house: I think I am very lucky. I have seen a lot of different sides of the place I call home. I have been where there is comfort and where there is danger, where there is money and where there is not, where there are castles and where there are sky canyons, where there are mansions and where there are housing projects.

    I do not pretend to know how it is for others- I do not even pretend to know what goes on.

    I think you have to try, though.
