Feb, 2006. For the past five months I have been living in a car at the edge of woods — jobless and homeless and totally unable to find a way out. I can't sing, I can't dance, I can't scream loudly enough, but I can read and write. So here I am laying down tracks...hopefully the start of an online paper trail out of here. (Update: Miracles happen....if you are reading my story I am part of your proof.)

Here and there

I'm sitting up here typing this under blue skies. The busy city street below my window is full of the smell of warm blossom and, now and then, when there is the occasional lull in traffic and all you hear is the slow swish of trees from neighbouring gardens and the call of birds in flight, you can close your eyes and think yourself almost anywhere. I love days like today.

I have just finished reading your book abandoned and wish to congratulate you and wish you and everyone else who has suffered in their life all the very best on your road to recovery. I struggle to comprehend how we as human beings who are supposed to be the most intelligent lifeform can treat each other with such cruelty. But there is also a lot of beauty out there as well and sincerely hope that in time that will aid in healing you if it hasnt already happened.All the very best. X

I am 13 years old and live in portugal. I've read your book and I loved it (despite having only 13 years)
I think you are a woman of courage, and admire you very much for everything that you did that!
I hope you are happy, because you deserve it!
kiss

Hi Anya

I too have just read your book and couldn't put it down. It is just unbelievable (and yet not) what you have been through. You write from the heart, and I hope that by putting some of it down on paper it has helped some of the scars to heal. Noone should have gone through any of the horrors that you experienced. But you seem to have held onto your optimism and love of the important things in life. I hope that life continues on the up and up for you, you are truely an inspirational woman. I think one of the things that upset me the most was the lack of a hug particularly at those really needed times. So please accept a huge one from me, and sincerely all the very very best for your future, you really deserve it. love Debbie x

Hey Anya,I'm from Singapore and just read your book. Was reduced to tears at the end. Seriously, you have a flair for writing and should keep doing it. Wish you all the best in whatever you do (:

That sounds lovely, days like that are great :)

I read your book and it touched me deeply, in fact i dont think a book has ever moved me more then yours has.

I think that someone like you, who has the strength, not to move on but to move through and still come out as an optimist is truely inspirational, i think that if everyone was like you, the world would be magical,
I think your extremely brave for sharing your story, and i hope that you find all of the peace and the happiness that you so rightfully deserve,

Il be thinking of you.

Much love

lucy

many people nowadays give up because of too many problems but you still managed to hold on on your own and that's showing real courage.

hope you just enjoy life and reach out to people because many do understand you.

just remember you're not alone. :)
