Thoughts of a wise and wise old man

Thoughts of a wise and wise old man

Just a few months before he passed away, I had the opportunity to interview the wise politician and well-known writer, Sabri Godo. Only 10 km from the city of Pogradec, in a hotel submerged by the lake, we met the well-known politician and writer Sabri Godon, who was walking quietly, with a slow and thoughtful step, by the shore of the lake. He had come to Pogradec the day before and was in the company of his wife. He came to Pogradec every season in summer, autumn and winter. After a few minutes of grazing by the lake, he sits in the corner of the bar and notices the calmness of the lake, which then mixes with the cry of seagulls. The vapors of the warm coffee mix with the cigarette smoke giving it a dreamy whiff that makes him remember the past years when he came almost every summer to Pogradec.

- Yes, it's true, I always come to Pogradec with a special pleasure, it seems to me that this city casts a spell on you, that even when you leave it, you take with you the wonderful views of the city and the lake, the clean air, the impressions of good people and happy living in this city. I have many memories from Pogradec. I have engaged in conversation with many people who say nice and wise things that stick in my mind for a long time. In Pogradec, I wanted to emphasize that there are optimistic people with positive values ??who value friendship. To be honest, if I had the chance, I would not only rest in Pogradec, but I would stay in this city for half the year here and the other half in Tirana. In Pogradec, I have many acquaintances and friends such as painters, doctors, writers and prominent intellectuals. And another fact I wanted to emphasize is that in Pogradec there is a citizenry that goes in complete harmony with the beauties that this city has. I have stayed in many countries of the world, but I have never seen such a beautiful lake with these wonderful shores anywhere, and I say this with great sincerity.

- Yes, it is true that apart from the fact that I have come to rest a little, I have not been in a good mood lately, I have had some health problems and there is no better place to recover my strength than in Pogradec. I am kindly telling you that I have come to rework a novel of mine written many years ago. I'm reworking this novel that went unnoticed years ago. The novel has a strange story that during the reworking I am really enjoying what I am doing. This scares me because the enemy of a writer is when he really likes what he writes.. What about the title of the novel?

(Laughs) I didn't feel like making it public, but I'm saying the new novel could be titled "Dervish Circles". I believe that it will be published very soon and I am confident that after the revision it will be well received by the readers.

 - Something about politics?

I thank you for this question that you asked me, and here I am saying it bluntly. It is a state, there are several columns that are maintained. We have to be careful in the statements we make because we become ridiculous, we have to be serious in what we say. I hope that starting from this fall, the Majority-Opposition conflict will be resolved. The parties must understand that they are causing incalculable damage to the country by bringing penalties from Europe. It is even shameful that in the eyes of Europe we have appeared as a quarrelsome people. And all this has a cost that we all pay. I have to add that newspapers should also be careful when they put a careless phrase in print, I often see with regret that a lot of irresponsible things are published. And something I wanted to add, the judiciary at all its levels should be put on the rails because it cannot work like this, we have a rotten and corrupt judiciary, and you see that judges and prosecutors have villas in all the tourist cities, what are these bought for? with broom seeds not with dollars and euros?

- Shall we leave the continuation of the interview until the next time I come to Pogradec and I will give the main lines of the novel. But my friend Godo, whom I have known since 35 years ago when I was working at the magazine "Hosteni" no longer came to Pogradec, he passed away, I am publishing the thoughts of the wise and wise old man Sabri Godo.
