"Fl-internet is-sess hu bla isem, bla limiti u bla kantunieri. Hi, kif int? Niltaqgħu? Kif tidher? Tall, samra u rqiqa. U int? Mibni, twil u ismar. U hemm isfel? Ħeħe, armat ukoll naughty girl. Għandek karozza? Ok, siegħa oħra mela. Imma dan ir-rakkont mhuwiex fuq l-internet jew xi studju tal-bidliet teknoloġiċi f'dawn l-aħħar tletin sena. Dan huwa rakkont tiegħi, fuqi, Lucy. Lucy li ma jafuhiex iktar minn mitejn persuna tgħaqqadhom f'daqqa. Imma kulħadd għandu xi ħaġa interessanti xi jgħid, ħi." Lucy. Lucy mhi ħadd speċjali. Min jafha? Kienet għadha ma taf kważi xejn, fuq kif inhu raġel u kif għandha żżomm banner waqt protesta ambjentali li ’qas taf kif spiċċat fiha. Minn falliment ta' date mal-ewwel raġel li mank biss tiftakar x'jismu, għal George — jew Ġorġ, kif iridha hu … U mbagħad l-oħrajn … U mbagħad, f'salt, ġraw ħafna affarijiet. Min-nies li kellmet, ħbieb li għamlet u pajjiżi li skopriet, Lucy indunat b'dinja kbira u wiesgħa, ħafna ikbar u usa' mill-problemi tagħha. U rrealizzat kemm setgħet tagħżel, dejjem. Ix-xelta setgħet tkun kbira, jew limitata. Imma dejjem setgħet tagħżel. Lucy għadha toħlom. Imma qed tasal xi mkien.
Lara Calleja was born in her beloved village of Marsascala, where the salty odour of the sea can be smelt from every corner and the waves crashing against the rocks were the soundtrack to her life stories. Lara loves exploring new places, not just abroad, but even the tiny crannies of Maltese streets which sometimes lead to a majestic building and sometimes to an abandoned emotionally haunting site. She works in the tourism sector but has the arts, in particular books and writing, very close to her heart. She thinks that the Maltese language makes it very easy for people to express their thoughts precisely.
