Waiting in Sarajevo
“What does your sorrow do while you are sleeping?
It is awaken and waiting.
when it loses patience, it wakes you up.”
Ivo Andrić, a Bosnian writer, awarded with the Nobel Prize in Literature (1961) for ”the epic force with which he has traced themes and depicted human destinies drawn from the history of his country”
I’m spending these last couple of days in Sarajevo, the capital city of the country where I was born and raised. And I wish I had more time to paint and draw while I’m here because this city moves me in all the ways I wish to be moved. So, maybe tomorrow I will.
(btw, my sister took this photo of me yesterday and I kind of liked it.)
