My poem The Hermit and the Wolf has been translated into more than 200 languages. There are also the recordings of recitations in 84 languages - I am publishing them now on this spot. A project, in which I have been involved in for nine years, is a result of collaboration with many translators, reciters, actors, singers, radio announcers, linguists, students and older natives, the only one preserving some languages with a few speakers. With my project I wish to refer to the extreme language diversity on our planet, while simultaneously expressing my concern about many endangered languages on the threshold of extinction. While collecting the translations and recordings I became familiar with many cultures I didn't know about before. I met numerous wonderful people, who helped me with my project, for which I am most grateful. Often, I kept thinking when I should stop and finish my project, but somehow, I couldn't do it and started to get quite nervous. Finally, I calmed down and dealt with the fact - there are more than 6000 languages in the world. The Hermit and the Wolf is a project which will never be finished.

Moja pesem Puščavnik in volk je bila prevedena v več kot dvesto jezikov. Poleg prevodov obstajajo posnetki recitacij v več kot 84 jezikih, ki jih zdaj objavljam na tem mestu. Projekt, s katerim se ukvarjam že devet let, je plod sodelovanja s številnimi prevajalci, recitatorji, igralci, pevci, radijskimi napovedovalci, jezikoslovci, študenti, pa tudi starejšimi domačini, ki še edini ohranjajo nekatere jezike z malo govorci. S projektom želim opozoriti na izjemno jezikovno pestrost na našem planetu, hkrati pa izraziti zaskrbljenost zaradi ogroženosti mnogih jezikov, ki so na pragu izumrtja. Med zbiranjem prevodov in posnetkov sem se seznanil s številnimi kulturami, ki jih prej nisem poznal. Srečal sem vrsto čudovitih ljudi, ki so mi pri projektu pomagali, za kar sem jim iskreno hvaležen. Večkrat sem razmišljal, kdaj naj se ustavim in projekt končam, toda nekako nisem in nisem mogel prenehati z delom in postajal sem že precej nervozen. Naposled sem se pomiril in sprijaznil. Na svetu obstaja več kot 6000 jezikov. Puščavnik in volk je projekt, ki ne bo nikoli končan.
