In 1983 I saw the film Flashdance and somewhere in the film the leading man says to the leading lady:

"If you give up your dream, you die."

It touched me in a place that matters and I phoned my friend Belinda Kruger – I remember it so well, it was from a telephone booth in Cape Town – and asked her to make a painting of the line. It has hung in my house ever since, I see it everyday, I believe it with my whole heart and I try everyday to live by it.
