just thinking about my grama.
“Instead of waiting to visit the Bay of Bengal to find objects to exclaim over, they might have a little curiosity about the objects they see in daily life. …To walk out your front door as if you’ve just arrived from a foreign country; to discover the world in which you already live; to begin the day as if you’ve just gotten off the boat from Singapore and have never seen your own doormat or the people on the landing… it is this that reveals the humanity before you, unknown until now.”
“La litterature, image de la societe”
not to channel the winter weather over here, but this feels appropriate.
