Ok, three books, that's tough, but can I take my computer too?
And, who do I have to share with? Do I get a choice?
Is it a kids-free desert island, or is it 'family-friendly'?
Does the desert island have a recent history of military coups?
And what's the exchange rate?
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
