I respond very easily to outside events. One’s life is a matter of chance. Nothing that you’ve arranged for yourself works out.
Ever since I was quite young, I was in St. John’s Ambulance or the Red Cross; latterly, I’ve been involved in voluntary work with the mentally handicapped and Abbeyfield Old People’s Homes.
Some people revel in taking risks, and some go through life taking no risks at all.
I’ve always enjoyed doing work that intrudes, or helps people.
I work on the motto that if something’s not impossible, there must be a way to do it.
