Do you like cold rainy evenings?
I do. I like this special wet, warm, orange light.
I like drops on my coat,
wet eyelashes, cold cheeks and hands.
I like the smell of evening, the smell of dying nature.
I like walks between old buildings in pretty, Sopot town.
Somehow Sopot means to me Autumn.
I think it’s because I travel there always when tourist time is over
and I see a silent place with a touch of an old world
and the eternal sea.
We walked there with Tina in silence.
We were looking for pretty shells,
eating caramels and listen the sound of blue blue sea.
The precious moments.
What more could I expect?

Wherever

Wherever I am, at whatever place on earth,
I hide from people the conviction
that I’m not from here.
It’s as if I’d been sent, to extract as many
colors, tastes, sounds, smells, to experience
everything that is a man’s share, to transpose what was felt
into a magical register and carry it there, from whence
I came.
/Cz. Miłosz

Gdziekolwiek jestem, na jakimkolwiek miejscu
na ziemi, ukrywam przed ludźmi przekonanie,
że n i e j e s t e m s t ą d.
Jakbym był posłany, żeby wchłonąć jak najwięcej
barw, smaków, dźwięków, zapachów, doświadczyć
wszystkiego, co jest
udziałem człowieka, przemienić co doznane
w czarodziejski rejestr i zanieść tam, skąd
przyszedłem.
