Dear Maarten,

Fantastic article. I enjoyed how you tied breathing to thinking, as if they are one. They aren’t to most people, you know. And definitely not so naturally! 😀😣

On an unrelated topic — did you see the statue erected for Raoul Wallenberg in Budapest? It’s of a man wrestling a snake. It kept being put up & taken down. I’ve lost count & don’t remember if it’s there or not now.
