Untitled--It feels so good to be in my private world. The world out there is scary. There are so many problems. I guess my life is a bit isolated--but in my world there are problems too. Poorer peoples lives are less complicated. They do not have to worry about running such a big house, the boat needing constant repairs or the servants wearing spotless white uniforms. Our lives are parelleled however when it comes to the pursuance of health, happiness and family fullfilment. From wherever one stands ones problems always seem important. Mitzi Cohen, from the series Rich and Poor
