It is late at night and someone across the way is playing “La Vie En Rose”. It is the French way of saying, I am looking at the world through rose-coloured glasses. It says everything I feel. I have learnt so many things, Father. Not just how to make vichyssoise or calf’s head with sauce vinaigrette, but a much more important recipe. I have learn how to live, how to be in the world and of the world… -and not just to stand aside and watch. And I will never, never again run away from life, or from love, either.
