One Response to Holzman and Friedman Head to Scandinavia

  1. Jovanovic Slobodan says:

    Completing, not competing!
    Listening, not proclaiming!
    Feeling, not thinking about, each other.
    Meeting the different other, not discriminating.
    Being involved, not working with other people (‘s psychic illness).
    Visiting, not inspecting or selling.

    From a speech at Banja Luka University, 2005.

    The whole poem, and specially the last sentence is my comment!
