Look closely. Can you spot the character from our childhood fairy tales? If you’re lucky, you might see it transform into a prince.
When I was little, my favorite stories were Beauty and the Beast, The Frog Prince, and the Princess and the Pea. I’ve always been fascinated by the idea of a hidden self, which will only be revealed to the most worthy person. I guess that’s why I’ve always been a romantic — I’ve always believed that we can only bare our souls and connect to the right person at the right time. Hehe. As Antoine de Saint-Exupery wrote in The Little Prince, “it is only with the heart that one can see truly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”
I’m a person of simple tastes and wants. All I’ve ever wanted since I was 12 was to have my own room where I can display my notebook collection. When I was 16, I was content to stay in bed and write in my journal. At 22, I thought I needed nothing more than classical music and a bowl of spaghetti.
