These lines reach you because, as I like to say, destiny has finally received me in the audience. For years I dreamed that my story would know the pattern and take me to the homes of people who want to smile, browsing me.
I confess to you, it took me a long time to reach your soul, but I have no regrets. "Brandusa Number Six" is about the courage I found in myself. It is about the sincerity with which I can open up to anyone and the fact that today I am no longer afraid of human judgment. It is about my need to give myself, as I am made up, with all the good and all the trouble, without shame for what happened. These lines come to you because this is my way of embracing all strangers who feel like me and need my word for a soothing tomorrow.
It is very difficult to write about you. Cling to any paper clip to appeal to such distant memories for which you have never kept a diary. Break like a walnut and relive every core or kernel of your existence. Tears welled up in this book. There were smiles between the lines, there were inner revolutions, a lot of longing, I turned everything upside down, I turned my face and my back, I was squeezed by feelings. But I succeeded, I reached the shore.
I give myself to you with confidence and I bow to the love that any writer should spread through his word. I hope this book heals you, inspires you, helps you, excites you and awakens the joys of your childhood. Take what is most beautiful from it. Receive me on your nightstand! I have prepared all my life to deserve this place and my life has not been short at all.
These lines come to you because, although I never thought I could, I freed myself. Every time you take my book in your hand, remember that I am like a butterfly that has dug a lot with its wings in brick walls and today sees the sun, because it simply did not give up believing in his strength, the strength of his story.
