Summer diary

Remember, we were sent to the village to visit grandparents? There we picked cherries, rode a bicycle, were afraid of the hissing of geese, ate green apricots and apples, and swam in the lake. And they were happy.

How about a childhood vacation with Etnodim?

Summer diary. Day 2

Several friends came to my village today.

Towards evening we were going to go to the water. And here I am sitting in a wicker chair. On the one hand, the water is rustling, and on the other, my dear people. But it seems to me that it has never been so quiet. I think about how many faces have seen these little waves on the water.

How many people did they touch?

Summer diary. Day 3

I woke up at 6 in the morning. I don’t remember when in the city I found the strength to get up so early. I washed myself with cold water, which I collected in the well. And in the midst of my thoughts I caught a warm memory of how my grandmother had been collecting water for me in the morning and warming it in the sun.

And now this memory warms my heart.

Summer diary. Day 4

“When you walk through the village, say hello to everyone,” my grandfather and grandmother taught me.

Because here, even if you do not know the person who is walking towards you, he certainly knows whose granddaughter you are, what city you live in, whether you go to gymnastics and whether you got an A in mathematics in the last semester.

And now I am going to a small grocery store in the center of the village. I will say hello to everyone I meet on the way.

Summer diary. Day 5

Fun with flowers.

I decided not to guess at the daisy, because I already know the answer.

But I made a wreath of dandelions. It was not possible to fix it the first time, just like in childhood.

"Sit on the path" took place right on this bench. And here one could also hear: "Oh, well, when will you come again?" Returning to the city and teasing at school that protected frogs from local mischievous people or learned to throw stones in the water I had no idea that one day I would return with a whole portfolio of fatigue to dispel it here.

Summer diary. Day 7

Once my grandfather took me to swim on the lake.

I was small and brave then. He took me in his arms, went into the water, and how I slip away! Like a fish! My grandfather loved to tell this story at feasts on any occasion. He said: "This is the most beautiful fish that I have caught!" And then he caught me quickly.

And so I go up the stairs, returning from that very beach. The sun is hot. It seems to me that my grandfather is near, that he is touching me. These are the leaves...

She allowed herself to close her eyes as her hands gripped the handlebars tightly. She rode quickly and boldly.

So I drove through the field, I wanted to scream with delight, but somehow I was ashamed to disturb the flowers with my noise.

I drove out on the way home.

The roads in the village are special because the neighbors' houses are looking at them. Those very neighbors who spied: "And with whom is she returning? With the grandson of Bogdan and Valya?"

I decided to pick apples. And already here, in the city, among multi-storey buildings, in one of the apartments, there is the smell of an August holiday - for the first time in my life I will make jam according to my grandmother's recipe.

Summer diary. Day 10

When nothing happens.

There are almost no such days in the city. Even if you stay in your own apartment, the maelstrom of events engulfs you. Active chats, news, little things to solve. Here, in the village, not only time slows down, but reality freezes. Everything froze in one moment of the whole day.

Have you ever thought that a bicycle wheel resembles the internal structure of a person? There is a center where all straight lines converge. And it moves, moves... So do we. Our inner center is our strength. But our life paths hold it. Lived and future stories that we create ourselves.

She brought a table from the living room and set it down in the middle of the yard. I think I have already forgotten how it is - to eat in the fresh air? I constantly go for snacks in a cafe with terraces, but does that count? The noise of the city has a different atmosphere.

In addition to the vegetable garden, my family had a wildflower garden. He is now being looked after by a neighbor.

Since childhood, little has changed in it, as in the whole village in general. Here, things rarely change for new ones. They either age naturally or germinate again.

We have collected flowers.

Summer diary. Day 14

I remember my first date. When we decided to go boating. In fact, he just wanted to show off and appear grown-up because he took his parents' boat.

I wonder what happened to him now? One summer he did not come to the village, and then their house became empty. "What if he saw me in this dress?" - I thought and smiled.

Summer diary. Day 15

People in the city often run away. So do I. Sometimes, from noisy companies, sometimes from work, or from their own worries and ambitions. And here, in the village, I am not running. I strive with the wind. To yourself.

Dress «Myt» is named after the shooting, which is filled with warm memories. What is a memory? This is the moment that you have noticed.
