A to Z - always astonishing me
A: Ayrton Senna
"I never liked formula 1, but of course everyone knew Ayrton Senna. I was at the club that Sunday, running on the track. The race was going on and there were two guys watching it around the track. Then, one time, when I passed them, I heard they saying "Senna crashed"; "Senna is dead."
And I stopped running; I simply had no desire to run. The whole club was silent. I swear to you, I’ve never seen anything like that. It was as if the entire club was in mourning. And you know what? It was not just the club. I left there and the city was the same way - quiet. I’ve never seen anything like this, never seen a mourning like that. And just a man.
Well, but I guess he wasn’t, was he? Just a man.” — My Psychologist
