"Life and death,
energy and peace.
if I stop today it was still worth it.
Even the terrible mistakes that I made
and would have unmade if I could.
The pains that have burned me and
scarred my soul, it was worth it,
for having been allowed to walk where I've walked,
which was to hell on earth,
heaven on earth, back again,
into, under, far in between,
through it and above"
GIA CARANCI (1960-1986)
