“You ask me about the affairs of this world. They are, of course, pretty grim. And I would certainly despair if I believed that everything on Earth depends only on humans. And of course, all the miseries in which we are, on all continents, are caused by us, by humans. But I have read my Jakob Boehme, and I have read all the prophets, and I have heard whispers of flowers and winds and songs of birds, and I have seen sunrises and I have sat by peaceful brooks and yesterday I was walking through a Brooklyn street and I saw crocuses blooming, and forsythias, and a very fragile, gentle blue flower, the name of which I do not know — so I know that there is something much stronger, much more unfathomable, than us, the humans. So do not despair.”
Jonas Mekas, Videographer and Filmmaker
You give us hope.
