Are We Here Just For Saying?

February 10, 2021


Are we here just for saying? is a lyrical essay in the form of a memoir. It follows a regular bike ride along a river through the seasons of the year and of a life, the cycles of the sun, as the rider wonders what names to call things by, taking a hint from Rilke about why we are here as creatures of language.
