An action


Today I drove with my fixer and her driver to the south, to the border with Israel. (If you concentrate on the picture you can see the frontier.)
The destruction of the last war was showed to me; the pictures of the martyrs.
At a certain point the driver said to me: “I introduce you to Hezbollah, they give you a weapon and you carry out an action inside Israel.” I laughed.
Laughing is the best response. Not always a solution, but very often the best response.
Mallarmé thought the world will end up as a book.
I think the world will end up as laughter.
