In a Year

Life just flies through frantic loops.

Literally, you look back six months ago – and it’s as if you are looking into the abyss.

Thinking about where I could be in a year.

In a year, I might be participating in a revolution in Moscow.
In a year, I might be hiding in the Carpathian Mountains.
In a year, I might become some humanitarian minister.
In a year, I might lie as a cold corpse somewhere in the Kherson region, killed by Russian soldiers. Or in the streets of Kyiv, killed by a Ukrainian policeman.

What interesting times we live in, gentlemen. As fascinating as in childhood.
