ثلاثون عاماً. وأشجار الصفصاف تبيض وتخضر وتصفر في الحدائق، وطير الوقواق يغني للربيع كل عام. ثلاثون عاما وقاعة البرت تغص كل ليلة بعشاق بيتهوفن وباخ. البحر في مده وجزره في بورتمث وبرايتن، ومنطقة البحيرات تزدهي عاماً بعد عام. الجزيرة مثل لحن عذب، سعيد حزين، في تحول سرابي مع تحول الفصول. ثلاثون عاماً وأنا جزء من كل هذا، أعيش فيه، ولا أحس جماله الحقيقي.
الطيب صالح, Season of Migration to the North
