Janez Drnovšek, former president of the Republic of Slovenia, died last night. Pengovsky has a post on his achievements and political life. Before coming to Slovenia, I remember reading about the country's vegan, New Age president. RIP.
I just came back from the market and the library, and when I looked at the first page of one of the books I borrowed, I came across this beautiful passage from Kahlil Gibran:
'For what is to die,
But to stand in the sun and melt into the wind?
And when Earth has claimed our limbs,
Then we shall truly dance.'
