Diary entry for 10 July 2005, To the Castle and Back

„I’ve run away. I’ve run away to Hrádeček. I’m here alone and I feel uneasy. Everything reminds me of the decades I’ve been through in this place. I like it here. It’s my refuge, my existential home, but again and again I realize there’s no going back, and that by now I’m not the same person I was when I wrote my plays, prepared my experimental meals, threw light-hearted parties, and organised secret dissident meetings. I’m older, sicker, wearier.“
