The early nineties

After the book launch of “Letters to Esther” a woman approached me. She pointed at a photograph of me that was taken in the early nineties.
“You were a handsome young man,” she said.
“Well,” I said, “when I was a handsome young man I didn’t feel handsome and I didn’t feel young. I didn’t feel like much of a man either.”
