is my concept and the premise for me to do, what I do, and for being the one, I want to be. It is by meeting 'the other' that my world is getting bigger. Through this meeting, I am confronted with myself and my convictions and left with re-examination. Experiencing the world face to face holds the possibility of understanding and acceptance at a nuanced level, which to me is a necessity in my pursuit to move myself from one place to another – in a literal sense as well as in a figurative sense.
Writing the novel "Love your enemy?" has been quite a confrontational process in which I have had to deal with both inner and outer conflicts. My talk is therefore very much about meeting those conflicts, it is about the interpersonal aspect, and in particular it is about moving yourself from one place to another.
