Kadri Mälk, 2020, Estonia


No one knows why a certain intention arrives at a certain hour and not a minute earlier. The intention probably needs to undergo a certain clarification in order to take shape in our mind’s eye, and a certain strength to break through the walls we ourselves have erected for ourselves. From a certain point on there is no way back. That point must be reached.
Atonement is the most important – it comes to me when I am worthy of it.
Words and commands are useless here; prayer, on the other hand, perhaps…
Impatience is the deadliest sin.
Inspiration, in spirare, is the dilation of blood vessels in the brain; it is only blood.
When it has happened, it has happened, it unmasks identity just as surely as a fingerprint, a chromosome in my blood. Blood never sleeps.
