It is not so much about moving on anymore, because I am very fond of all those places I have been. But there is something about age, I had that even before, even when I was very young. I believe that every time you start, you feel like you are 18— you have to understand how everything works, how the relationship with people is, what you can do. I am trying to find an answer to it, perhaps that’s why this trying to get a lot of different lives, to feel like you are a kid again & again. When I was a girl I went to Sienna— my mouth dropped— wow! The first time you would arrive to New York, or the first time you would arrive somewhere else there used to be that— wow! Now it’s much harder to find something really new— we have seen all those pictures… yet it is still a new experience to live in a different environment, there is something about the language, I like to talk a lot, perhaps not to talk, but to be talked to… I like things that are talked, I love to read too, but you know what I mean… I like most to find somebody, somebody very old, so they can tell me stories about things I don’t know, about places I don’t know.
