I got used to the clean source water, the clean air, no radiation, the darkness and silence of the mountains. And it is only when I don’t have access to these basics, I realize how they are human needs. In the city we think our living environment is clean, but every time I come back I get ill. We call it acceptable.
Of course I know I am leaving soon, but what is it to turn your back on it? It’s not a solution to just move to places without pollution. Only for one person. But I think we are all in desperate need of these human basics. Of silence. Of clean air and water. Of an unspoiled living climate. I know it now more than ever.
