14th March 2018 will be from now on regarded as a day of loss for the world of science. That’s because of Stephen Hawking’s death. This English astrophysicist, cosmologist and theoretical physicist from University of Cambridge contributed to shaping of modern science. His research, centred around general theory of relativity and quantum mechanics, have become phenomenon and have helped to understand the universe better. For his achievements he received many awards and honours. During most of his life he had to live with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Due to the fact of progressing disease he was forced to use a wheelchair for motion and speech synthesiser to communicate.

Stephen Hawking, as a wise man, had opinions about different aspects of life. Here are some of his quotes:

„In a world that is in chaos politically, socially and environmentally, how can the human race sustain another 100 years? […] I don’t know the answer. That is why I asked the question, to get people to think about it, and to be aware of the dangers we now face.”

„What I meant by ‘we would know the mind of God’ is, we would know everything that God would know, if there were a God, which there isn’t. I’m an atheist.”

„Climate change is one of the great dangers we face, and it’s one we can prevent if we act now.”

„Quiet people have the loudest minds.”

He made many cameos in popular media (for instance: in an episode of „Star Trek: The Next Generation”, on „The Simpsons”, at the Monty Python Live (Mostly) in 2014).

Stephen Hawking died peacefully in his home in Cambridge. He died at the age of 76. As a matter of fact, his date of birth and death are very symbolic. He was born on the 300th anniversary of Galileo’s death (8th January 1942) and died on the 139th anniversary of Albert Einstein’s birth.

He will be buried at Westminster Abbey next to Isaac Newton and Charles Darwin

March 17 was a special day for our Group Under the Hanging Cat. It was the 20th edition of Shakespeare’s Festival in Lublin. This contest is a kind of tradition for GUHC’s members and every year they do their best to achieve as much as possible.

Actors and actresses from our drama society performed two spectacles: “The Gravediggers” and “Temptation. Temptations”. The first one was based on “Hamlet”. It showed the famous scene from the fifth act. However, the gravediggers were kids and the cemetery was turned into a sandpit. The allegoric character of the performance was impressive and stuck in audience’s mind. The second spectacle entitled “Temptation. Temptations.” was dominated by women. They were disguised as witches. Their emotions were the reflection of emotions in Macbeths’s head. Besides our Group, there were drama societies from all over Poland. The competition was tough, but our representatives moved on to higher things of their skills and cloud the others.

Not only did GUHC win the Grand Prix, but also Piotr Woldan was given an honourable award. The main prize in the contest is a trip to London and tickets for plays in The Globe Theatre. This year it is Julia Krysiak who is going to England. Congratulations to Beata Gendek – Barhoumi, who prepared scripts and our players.

We have an honour to introduce the works of one of our students (he wants to remain anonymous). He writes poetry and in our opinion he’s really good! From now on we will be presenting his poems, two of which are the ones below. Enjoy reading and wait for the next ones…

Another Goodnights for Souls

 

Living to forget

Forgetting to sleep

Sleeping to perish

Perishing to wake

Wakening to live

 

I have seen it all throughout the years

Rivers cried, saline seas, oceans’ fears

Hearts foundering within roaring tears

 

It is not a shame, My Dear

Nor an aimless path, so peer

Inside this world, swamping woe and jeer

You are not the only one here

 

Whether You see, think, falls dusk purebred

I am close, whispering words You read

Adoring presence for which I long

Gazing from afar, Your soul is strong

Let Yourself entangle in my winds

Subside together, set free what spins

We will tuck You, appease darkling streams…

Now come, please, embrace innermost dreams

 

I wish You goodnights

I wish for each Soul; for You –

Fly, seek waterfalling dew

I wish You goodnights

Succumb to creek, pulling away

I wish You goodnights

Nothing to fear in Your sleep

 

You are somebody’s blanket of stars

 

I wish You another goodnights

I wish for each Soul another goodnights

I wish You another goodnights

I wish You another goodnights

I wish You another goodnights

I wish You another goodnights…

 

Only Linden Knows My Face

 

Observe me getting lost

Into your steamy waters…

 

Raptures hide where eyes shan’t peek

Sheets dictate ways dress leak

I fringe each pounding sphere

Our breaths fuse, effloresce blear

Caramel river shed down

Through legs, whelms vestal town

This ginger scent besots

Abashes napping sweet spots

Candlelights flicker with lust

Envious that you’re mine gust

Lashes budge like butterfly

Sweep me in, delicate sigh

I can’t hold back, loose my name

And my fireplace will enflame

Our little sin perdures

In velvet desire immures

I’ll treasure it forever

Make every endeavour

Now I still can’t fall asleep

As you keep on returning

Now I guess, such a lame thing

As you doze where worms breed deep
