“As for our future, we left it to its rightful owners: the wind or to fate.
So unlike the frightened gadje who lined up for predictions from the
gypsy fortune-tellers to reassure them about their lives….
The Rom do not tell fortunes for one another
because we are not obsessed with our
futures, and will allow neither the past
nor the future to yoke itself to us. We
know how to live absolutely immersed
in the present, remaining susceptible to
any gales the winds might usher
in, because we know a gale will always
ultimately be embellished with rainbows.”
