Gosh, so many years have gone by so quickly. I cannot believe I used to look like this. Well, I can honestly say that, although I thought I knew it all then, I certainly did not. I am so much wiser and far more compassionate now than I've ever been in my life. Being an artist and a world traveler has taught me how little I need to be happy, and how much I have in common with most people of the world.
