I, although acknowledged as also an accomplished dancer, felt in awe of her flashing feet. I have not until now revealed, nor referred to these feelings for some 45 years. Since we were but members of the same dance club, the only thing I could do was to send a card of condolence to her parents, whom I never met. I took her to a theatrical performance once. It was Salad Days at the Theatre Royal in Brighton. She was so beautiful, but on Earth for a mere 18 years. I never even told my mother of my love for her. It was a private thing, to be stored in my heart.Now, in my waning days, I have to set down the account of my life before I join her, or not, in the next life. I have spent the years trying to find my calling and even now, have not succeeded. Oh, I have had minor successes among the failures but, believing that there is a purpose for me being alive, I have not yet heard the call. It is for this reason that the story you are about to read is called simply, Survival.P.H., Crete 2003
