My desk is like a 'U,' so I have my computer and lots of dictionaries because I write in Spanish and I live in English.
What I fear most is power with impunity. I fear abuse of power, and the power to abuse.
I have lived with passion and in a hurry, trying to accomplish too many things. I never had time to think about my beliefs until my 28-year-old daughter Paula fell ill. She was in a coma for a year, and I took care of her at home until she died in my arms in December of 1992.
Twittering and blogging and all that is fine, but there is no idea of how to phrase something beautifully; how to use language to create an emotion. It's just passing information and sometimes very superficial information.
