I am not so different in my history of abandonment from anyone else after all. We have all been split away from the earth, each other, ourselves.
Each life reverberates in every other life. Whether or not we acknowledge it, we are connected, woven together in our needs and desires, rich and poor, men and women alike.
Philosophy means nothing unless it is connected to birth, death, and the continuance of life. Anytime you are going to build a society that works, you have to begin from nature and the body.
In one sense I feel that my book is a one-woman argument against determinism.
Before a secret is told, one can often feel the weight of it in the atmosphere.
