The summer of 1977 was a turning point in my life, some of the experiences I had in Lacoste that summer are as vivid now in my mind as the incredible dream I experienced last night. The summer of 1977 was magical for me and in a magical place, Lacoste. To Bernard and all the people who were there to share this time, thank you, I'll never forget."
