Excerpt from Elephant à la Mode:
“I have come to realize that even though the events of my life were the topics of my book, it is my friends, who truly assisted my navigation along my journey. Friends and their relationships are a necessary part of the development of any person’s character. They are the ones that were there when I needed them. It was not important whether or not they had some words of comfort and encouragement. They only needed to be there to hug me and hold me. These gestures reconnected me to my life here with them. I came to realize, it is our family and our heritage, our teachers and our friends, who enabled us to develop who we are and what we are.”
Chinese Proverb (畫意能達萬言)
“One Picture is Worth Ten Thousand Words,”
