Language is a pleasure, after all. Bilingualism strikes me as a kind of synesthesia. Instead of seeing colors associated with letters and words, instead of hearing melodies, what I hear with language is the play and echo of the other language. The option to say it differently, and thus to live it differently. Language is not only a means of communication or description. It’s a framework in which we process existence.Yi writes: “It is hard to feel in an adopted language, yet it is impossible in my native language.” As every bilingual person and translator knows, there are certain words—a feeling, a way of being—that is absent in one language but perfectly brought to life in another. A word that, by existing, gives permission to be. What if you need that which does not exist in your language?

If I were to pray at this moment, I don’t think I would say anything at all. I would just get down and lightly kiss the earth. That’s the least I can do.

Wszystko, co dobre, od początku ostrzega cię końcem.  A najlepsze żyje motylim życiem, zdycha gwałtownie.

There is a certain terror that goes along with saying “My life is up to me.” It is scary to realize there’s no magic, you can’t just wait around, no one can really rescue you, and you have to do something. Not knowing what you want to do with your life—or not at least having some ideas about what to do next—is a defense against that terror. It is a resistance to admitting that the possibilities are not endless. It is a way of pretending that now doesn’t matter. Being confused about choices is nothing more than hoping that maybe there is a way to get through life without taking charge.

Kochani, czasem jest tak, że wszystko idzie nie tak,

jak trzeba.I wtedy pojawia się miska z maślanką i truskawkami. I od razu wiadomo, że będzie dobrze.  Dlatego chciałem Wam tylko napisać - tak po prostu - żebyście się nie martwili za bardzo jeśli Wam nie idzie. Bóg jest dobry. Ludzie są piękni. I będzie dobrze. Nawet jeśli nie od razu, to będzie dobrze.  Zjedzcie maślankę z truskawkami.

There’s a Spanish proverb,“ he said, "that’s always fascinated me. "Take what you want and pay for it, says God.’” “I don’t believe in God,” Daniel said, “but that principle seems, to me, to have a divinity of its own; a kind of blazing purity. What could be simpler, or more crucial? You can have anything you want, as long as you accept that there is a price and that you will have to pay it.

"Przepis brzmi- spakuj się do niewielkiego plecaka, zabierz go ze sobą do pracy i jeśli masz możliwość, wyjdź godzinę, dwie wcześniej. Następnie pojedź gdziekolwiek za miasto, gdzie masz dostęp do lasu, jeziora, stawu czy gór. Jeżeli możesz, zostań tam na noc, a jeśli masz do dyspozycji tylko kilka godzin- wyłącz telefon i włócz się bez żadnego planu. Gwarantuję, że będzie to genialne przeżycie, szczególnie jeśli zrobisz to w dzień roboczy, spędzisz noc w plenerze i następnego dnia rano pojedziesz od razu do pracy. To będzie prawdziwa rewolucja w twojej głowie."

You stop waiting for them by letting things change. You cut your hair and know they’ll never see it. You quit your job and know you’ll never tell them about the new one. You let people into your life that you know they’ll never get the chance to love or hate or sit up at night discussing with you. You let the delicate pattern of the life you’d built with them dissipate and change form with the arrival of each new twist. You aren’t okay with it and so you let it not be okay. You brace yourself each time for the impact. You know that someday change will come naturally again and even that feels sort of sad.

You stop waiting by being vulnerable with someone new. You start giving your secrets away – the ones you thought were safe with them, until suddenly they weren’t. You realize that knowing you deeply isn’t an experience that was exclusive to them and you let that be as surprising as it is disheartening. [...]

You stop waiting for someone to come back by choosing to go forward without them. And perhaps this is the saddest, simplest truth – that we must deliberately move ourselves away from the people we have loved and lost or else we will stay lost alongside them. That forward, alone, may not be the most desirable option but it is the only one we have. And we don’t get to trade in our hand. [...]

You stop waiting for someone to come back through a series of slow, deliberate steps that move you away from the life you thought you’d have and towards the one that’s waiting for you. It’s the life that shows up once you make the conscious, uncomfortable decision to leave the past behind. To learn from the people you’ve lost and to embrace the people that you have left. To embrace the life you have left. And to bring yourself back to it as fully and wholly as you wish that you could bring back someone else.
