Hello, Karl Ove

“How serious I’ve been! And now I’m learning, again as I’ve always needed to learn, over and over, that life is a joke, that it should be approached lightly—not without gravity but with eagerness, with an open mind.

“It’s likely that my feelings will change, that walls will close in, that I will forget what it’s like to let go, for even just a minute or two. In a week’s or two week’s time I might be, in this sense, another person, reluctant, and needing education. This post will become embarrassing, an example of unfulfilled mania. I hope not. Perhaps this will serve as a reminder.”
