Milan Kundera,The Unbearable Lightness of Being,1984

The Beauty of New York.

   Franz and Sabina would walk the streets of New York for hours at a time. The view changed with each step, as if they were following a winding mountain path surrounded by breathtaking scenery; a young man in a black suit directing an invisible orchestra while crossing the street; a fountain spurting water and a group of construction workers sitting on the rim eating lunch; strange iron ladders running up and down buildings with ugly red façades, so ugly that they were beautiful; and next door, a huge glass skyscraper backed by another, itself topped by a small Arabian pleasure-dome with turrets, galleries, and gilded columns. 624 palabras más

The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera

만약 우리가 사랑할 수 없다면, 그것은 아마도 우리가 사랑받기를 원하기 때문일 것이다. 다시 말해, 아무런 요구 없이 타인에게 다가가 단지 그의 존재만을 요구하는 것이 아니라 다른 무엇(사랑)을 원하지 때문일 것이다.

Some Things Take Time

I read the following in  2005; Dear Layla Welcome to Palestine came out in 2015:

Ironic essay, novelistic narrative, autobiographical fragment, historical fact. Flight of fantasy—the synthetic power of the novel is capable of combining everything into a unified whole like the voices of polyphonic music. 42 palabras más

Mengingat Mimpi, Membangun (lagi) Imajinasi

Masa kecil begitu jauh sekaligus dekat. Jauh dicekik saat yang terus bergerak. Dekat karena jejaknya berarak di lereng ingatan. Masa kecil juga selalu menjadi lonceng yang kerap berdentang: mengingatkan kita bahwa berkurangnya usia berparalel dengan tanggungjawab yang kian menggantang, beban hidup yang mulai terasa, dan orang-orang tercinta yang diambil waktu satu-persatu. 345 palabras más
