"I look back and look forward, to what was and to what is yet to come. Here and now I am in my center, I am suddenly completely me, in all my roles: the girl, the woman, the lover, the mother, the singer, the dancer, the painter, the poet. Acting and life become one, art and reality merge. For a split second I see everything again, I see this path that lies behind me and the one that still lies ahead, I see my soul..."
