APRIL. AWAKENING. Or "Clocks of eternal happiness".
Last year my summer holidays began already in May. Beautiful hotel in Emirates, situated on a Persian Bay in the middle of handmade oasis with luxuriant plants and flocks of green parrots. Sun, comfort, my kid is all day long in a swimming pool, delicious meals, and well-trained, polite service personnel. Then two weeks in apartments in Bulgaria - cool but incredibly dark-blue sea, red poppies on seashore among unreal green grass, ...Read more »

Time of first flowers and young grass has come. Buds are swelling and bursting, sap is fermenting in trunks of trees, wood-grouses are uttering their mating calls, ringed seals are basking in the sun, seal cows are coming to bring up their babies.

It is tavolga blooming.

IN SILENCE OF SUNSET. AT THE WORLD’S END.
Not long ago my friends invited me to visit Letnaya Zolotitsa. First I thought, what could I find interesting and what should I do there.

And in general, I don’t want to move further north than St-Petersburg…
But the trip made a great change in my notion of the world. Not ...Read more »
ALONE WITH SEA.
Autumn. It came unexpectedly, smoothly flowing from summer, like river flows into sea. Waking up on a new day morning I understood and realized: it was here. I got up, rubbed my eyes and looked out of window.
Sunrays couldn’t reach the yard because of trees. Everywhere smell of autumn was felt. One more year was leaving. Forever. I thought before that the whole life was in front of me, that I was young and had many discoveries before. But now I realize that as a matter ...Read more »
