russian festival day
a little taste of everything
lots and lots of happy dancing
traditions, tea, wine, beer, language, music, religion, art, history
loved experiencing this culture
the people so passionate about it
and all so new to me.
“a nation’s culture resides in the hearts and in the soul of its people.”
rereading one of my favorite books
sweeping epic set in russian history
pasternak a poet
i would love for it to have
a different ending
for just one reading
it would not be
the story it was meant to be.
“literature is the art of discovering something extraordinary about ordinary people,
and saying with ordinary words something extraordinary.”
