If You See Something • Aviya Kushner
One of my biggest fears is that I will die because I have talked too much. According to Jewish tradition, every human being has a limited number of words, and then that’s it—you’re gone. Every few months I start to worry about my tally, and warn my friends that a quieter life lies ahead.
Aviya Kushner is at work on a book about how the Bible has been changed through translation. She lives in Chicago.
