a continuous reincarnation

António Alçada Baptista died last Saturday – a man whose words taught me about the strength that lies in softness, a man whose writings triggered such deep realisations in my young and hungry and uncertain heart.

I believe if there is such a thing as reincarnation, this man has already reincarnated: not in a sole, newborn body, but in the countless minds and hearts he enlightened, in the daily actions of those he inspired. Count me in among the ranks.
