In memory of Dag Hammarskjold on his birthday, a photo of the meditation ring from his summer house, at Backåkra. This was sent to me by my dearest friend in Sweden, tack så mycket!
“The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it’s indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it’s indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it’s indifference. Because of indifference, one dies before one actually dies. To be in the window and watch people being sent to concentration camps or being attacked in the street and do nothing, that’s being dead.”
—Elie Wiesel, 27 October 1986
