John and I came from very different places. We were man and woman, we were from the West and the East. Each of us represented totally different social strata as well.
We came from extreme opposites.
So in some ways, we were very different from each other, but then in another way we were totally together.
By the way, we were very aware of that symbolism, and also how people hated us for it. We were two people who transcended the positions they were suppose to adhere to.
We didn't get together just to do that, but we felt that it was very magical that we fell in love with each other and understood each other totally in spite of all the differences.
