dangers of the uncertain

The uncertain

Yes and no

The answer of the uncertain
The one that puts himself
In both camps and
Finds his conviction

Fearful, coward, realist
Weighing the pro and cons
The big question
Interrogation point

Is a person not in the right
Of deciding, weighing, measuring
The consequences of his decisions
Should we judge the uncertain?

Far from perfect
Foibles inhabits us
In a constant way
In an existential practice

Yes and no

Will stay without answer


Oui et non

La réponse de l’incertain
Celui qui se met dans les
Deux camps et y trouve
Sa conviction

Peureux, lâche, réaliste
Pesant le pour et le contre
La grande question
Point d’interrogation

La personne n’étant pas en droit
De décider, peser, mesurer
Les conséquences de ses décisions
Devons nous juger l’incertain?

Loin d’être parfait
La déficience nous habite
De manière constante
De façon existentielle

Oui et non

Restera sans réponse

Bill Moyers interview with Ursula K. LeGuin about “Lathe of Heaven”

There are interviews where you immediately shut off when the interviewer
starts asking his questions to the interviewee.

Others where you feel the chemistry running and are hooked till
the last word is said. This is how I felt when I saw this one with Bill
Moyers interviewing Ursula K. Leguin.

He managed to bring out her rich personality, listening to her is captivating.
She reaches out to the listener and makes them feel a kinship to her ideas about
writing a book, her characters, her peaceful way of thinking about life, growth,

I could go on and on… In short it’s a very interesting video to watch for
those curious about the literate world and professionals.

Enjoy and let me know what YOU think about it 🙂
