The last time was when I was a student in Vienna ten years ago. I return there again and again and think: was I in error? Was I unseeing? Where was the balance of pain between the two of us? What I lost there I have never come near to retrieving.
What happened to me so many years ago? Love or not love, I could not continue in that city. I stumbled, my mind jammed, I felt the pressure of every breath."
