a thought for my friend Jolanta Myc/Warsaw

There but for the Grace

It could have happened.
It had to happen.
It happened sooner.
Later.Nearer. Farther.
It happened not to you.

You survived because you were the first.
You survived because you were the last.
Because you were alone.
Because of people.
Because you turned left.
Because you turned right.
Because rain fell.
Because a shadow fell.
Because sunny weather prevailed.

Wislawa Szymborska

"Nothing in life is to be feared.
It is only to be understood."

Maria Sklodovskaia Curie.

What amazing women.
