How to live - someone asked me this in a letter,
someone I had wanted
to ask that very thing.

Again and as always,
and as seen above
there are no questions more urgent
than the naive ones.

Wisława Szymborska from “The Turn of the Century,” translated by Joanna Maria Trzeciak.

Thank you, Whiskey River.
