Our Riches

Kaouther Adimi

“They were used to waiting for orders and being told how to live. Now they decided to live as they pleased, simply, not listening to anyone, and everything was lit up, truly, as when we find the match and the lamp, and the house is illuminated, and we know at last where to reach for what we need, as when the dawn lights up a larger dwelling, and a part of the world that had been smothered by night’s mud, with its valleys, rivers, hills, and forests, is revealed in all its living joy.”
