La Condition Humaine

by Orest Strus

The world is beautiful. Light, shadow, cold, heat, happiness, unhappiness… Hope, charity. Infancy, youth, old age… Men, children, women… Beautiful women, ugly women, God’s grace, deception and honesty… Memory, fantasy. Bread and wine. Sausages, milk, goats, pigs and cows. Rats. Bears, wolves. Birds. Trees and smoke, snow. Sickness, healing. Death, immortality and resurrection. That’s wonderful. I suppose so.
