Never

If you could read a book containing all that has happened and will ever happen in your life, would you? If you choose to read it, you must read it cover to cover.  

How boring! Me, reading my own life? I have better things to do. Living the few years that I have before me, for instance. Time flies.  there’s no time to lose. Besides, there are lots of things I prefer to forget. Other things that I can remember vividly and I treasure in my memory without need of a book. I would rather like to read about the people I’ve met during my life, above all when I worked as a reporter. Important people and common people who shared with me their experiences and then vanished from my life. I would like to write their life stories. Many are no longer with us. Others chose a criminal life or are in prison. Others are real life heroes living among us. As for the future, I prefer to don’t know what will happen exactly. Life is interesting when the future it’s open. I’m too busy living the present  and trying to do it the best way I possibly can.
