    Reminded me of an old friend, back then a fellow student of philosophy at the Warsaw University, who, come spring, would ask with a trace of existential anguish easily detectable in her voice: “and what’s it all for? it’s all gonna wither and die.”
    The other day, when I was walking around Bloomington with my camera and taking pictures of all this buddin’ and bloomin’ stuff (and Bloomington does bloom these days) I was momentarily overwhelmed by a similar feeling. But then I shrugged as I stood there admiring a dogwood and thought that “Einmal ist keinmal” is such a ridiculous idea.
