My dear friend:

I have the autumn leaves. You have the blue ocean.

I have the wide and terrifying highways of the world. You have the crumbling streets of our tearful island.

I have the fear of a lamb in a den of wolves. You have the courage of a samurai warrior.

I have silver and steel; I have a house too big for me and a calendar marking the days when I will be away. I have tomorrow and tomorrow; I have everything.

You have the witness of your eyes….
