Sifting through all the tales and rumors about my life, which stirred up my journey, through all the ups and downs, the myriad of interpretations, all the analyses, all the bitter and sweet memories, searching deeper than the earth and higher than the sky… We come to a compilation of facts and realities in which my story is immersed.
A chronicle that originates from one birth to another, treading to the garden of mirrors. The story of an inseparable link between the words, songs and melodies of my hectic tale…the memories of a bohemian life, that not once but many times was hanging by a thread that never broke.
Over the years, several people have tried to write my memoirs, but each time the work was more the narrator’s point of view rather than my own feelings and perspective. Naturally, they all did their best. But in the end, because their narration did not harmonize with my sentiments, just like choosing a song, this time I listened to my inner voice and came to the conclusion that no one can express me better than myself. I had to get to work… My story must be my own.
What I share with you in this book are the hidden layers my life. Untold stories of complexity, pain, loneliness and feelings that in the darkest and the brightest moments, depict how I chose love and service to be my inspiration and the reason to go on living.
May this life story be my way of conveying my message and creed to you as a token. As you have heard my innermost sentiments directly from my voice, this time I will write to you directly about the facts that have always been preserved between me and my soul. In the hope that sharing how I found my way in the labyrinth of life, can be an inspiration for all those who are waiting for an excuse to metamorphosis into a butterfly.
The language of this book is permeated with self-reflection and realization. From the depths of the most painful, and at times beyond the most beautiful encounters, this book tells the story of a child who survived the depth of darkness so that he could share the power of light. A child who after being born again, sees this not as an opportunity to finish a book of memoirs, but as the beginning of a bright and fruitful future…
