"The fact is, i don't want my book to be taken lightly.
Telling these memories is so painful for me.
It's already been six years since my friend went away taking his sheep with him.
If i try to describe him here, it's so i won't forget him.
It's sad to forget a friend
Not everyone has had a friend.
And i might become like the grown-ups who are no longer interested in anything but the numbers.
Which is still another reason why i've bought a box of paints and some pencils."
-antoine de saint-exupéry
