Czeslaw Milosz

Last night I couldn't sleep and didn't feel like reading any of the books I've started. Instead, I started reading Czeslaw Milosz again.

It may not be the best insomniac reading (or the cheeriest), but I fell asleep!

He felt thankful, so he couldn't not believe in God.

From galactic silence protect us.
