Of (Greek) proverbs, clarity and wisdom. What is your favorite proverb in your mother tongue? What has it taught you?
“What I look for myself in the writers I most admire and enjoy is insight into the ways human beings can experience a sense of being drawn or pulled toward something beyond themselves, and how their response to that can raise them to becoming something more than they were or perhaps than they could even have imagined.” – Prof. Eugene Webb. Interview by Felipe Cherubin.
What’s your “ideal bench”?
“I wanted this video to show that no matter who you are and no matter where you come from, we are all related, all connected.”
What surprised me was what I got from the people. I had forgotten how good it feels to smile and be smiled back at. I know some say Americans are superficially nice, but I miss that friendliness. Every day I went to the boardwalk of Venice Beach in LA, I got hugs for no reason at all.
You’ve known this all along, of course, but now you’re painfully aware.
