I live my life as an experience and a dream. As a lesson and a blessing. As a choice and a chance. This is my wisdom. This is my strength. The book you are holding in your hands is a source of rebirth and light. It contains the sensitivity, wisdom, poetry and dreams that an adolescent may feel, understand, create and share. It is hoped that the reading of the texts in this book will revivify and soothe you, as well as unfold before you an optimistic, luxuriant and vibrant present. Stavrina Lampadari was born in Volos, Greece.
