Personal Quote:

I like chance meetings - life is full of them. Every day, without realising it, I pass people whom I should know. At this moment, in this café, we're sitting next to strangers. Everyone will get up, leave, and go on their own way. And they'll never meet again. And if they do, they won't realise that it's not for the first time. See more »
