“On the bank of the Mesta river there is a place, where I’ve left my tribute to Bulgarian past. It isn’t neither the khans’ time nor the time of the rulers, who have multiplied the territories of the country. It’s survival time.

With my senses of a person from other worlds, I find that sensitiveness of the soul, which I’d recognize only by its traces. These are children.

In an autumn like that, a lot of years later, the villagers harvested the fruit of their happiness - their children, who became linked by marriage to conceive children.

And again they begin to set up their home with families and children – as ever….
