Thanks for the Season’s Greetings to Dawit Isaak


I believe in the mystery of words and I believe that words can become life, destiny and beauty.

Leonardo Sciasca, Italian writer

Dear Dawit Issac,

in a very unhappy and unpeaceful world I send you a message of peace and hope for the future of words, poetry, art and beauty

as a powerful weapon against violence, persecution and war…
