De troostprijs 7+
When we look up to the stars in the sky, people are small and insignificant. This will not do!
And so we elevate ourselves to stardom. We have speeches, raise podiums. We pad each other on the back and honour one another with awards. We appoint ourselves as champions. We hand out decorations, medals, victory cups. We build prize cabinets reaching all the way up to the ceiling, under the motto ‘The sky is the limit’.
And yet…. And yet we are and remain but tiny creatures in an overwhelming universe. Each prize is a consolation prize.
