Antojo of the Day: From Jerzy Kosinski’s The Painted Bird

In honor of yesterday’s 70-year anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, today’s Antojo of the Day (AOTD) consists of a few lines from Jerzy Kosiński’s 1965 novel, accompanied by an image taken of Berat, Albania’s Mount Tomorri:

“It mattered little if one was mute; people did not understand one another anyway. They collided with or charmed one another, hugged or trampled one another, but everyone knew only himself. His emotions, memory, and senses divided him from others as effectively as thick reeds screen the mainstream from the muddy bank. Like the mountain peaks around us, we looked at one another, separated by valleys, too high to stay unnoticed, too low to touch the heavens.”  ―Jerzy Kosiński, The Painted Bird
