The fact that we all have been children are our major sorrow in life. We are drifting with a dead child within us, until we die.

Photographs from vigils and rallies held in remembrance of Eric Garner, the 43 year old Black man, father of six, who was murdered by the police, on camera. 

It was a hard time for me. And it was hard to hide my sorrow. No one must be allowed to guess that anything had happened to plunge me into despair. But because I had the lifelong habit of dissembling, shutting myself in, I think I succeeded and that no one noticed anything.

“I am too intelligent, too demanding, and too resourceful for anyone to be able to take charge of me entirely. No one knows me or loves me completely. I have only myself.”

I’m self-sufficient. I spend a lot of time on my own and I shut off quite easily. When I communicate, I communicate 900 per cent, then I shut off, which scares people sometimes.
