Πρόσφατα έμαθα ότι η Ursula Le Guin πέθανε, κι αυτό μού έδωσε χαρά και λύπη συγχρόνως.
Χαρά; Ναι, επειδή ήταν μεγάλη πια – 89 χρονών – και φαίνεται να πέθανε ανώδυνα. Και έχω δει ανθρώπους, σε μεγάλη ηλικία, να ταλαιπωρούνται για χρόνια από αρρώστιες προτού πεθάνουν – πράγμα που σε κάνει να αναρ...Read more of this blog post »
