my favourite definition is: a shameless, bold individual who’s confident, willing to take risks and to live with the consequences. Think of Isabel Eberhardt, the cross-dressing Swiss heiress, an experienced drug taker who decamped to the Algerian desert at the end of the nineteenth century. We must err, but let us do so on the side of audacity. I want more audacity in every corner of my being. An old friend once said he believes that seventy percent of people are sheep who trundle after the herd, twenty percent are wolves who prey on others, and ten percent are sheepdogs who audaciously protect the sheep from wolves. What are you?
