My dear,

Take your life in your own hands, and what happens?

A terrible thing: you have no one to blame.

But, also – a wonderful thing. You have no one constraining you. No one telling you what to do, how to do, why to do, and where to do. You’re in a sense free.

It’s terrible and wonderful this thing of ours isn’t it? This thing called freedom.

Falsely yours,
Erica Jong
