Cattle bells, stonewalls, a waterwheel and Maria Nejkova ("Twain")
In my blood the mellifluous sound of чанове [chanove] - cattle bells
ripple along ancient stonewalls - зидове [zidove] reverb no hollowness -
succulent greens and a thirsty waterwheel far from the bubbling stream, eager
to hear taut strings strum to an old song "Двама" [Dvama] - "Twain" from
a classic Bulgarian movie of struggle : primal instincts, violence, revenge,
love and death in one. Козият Рог [Kozijat Rog] - The Goat Horn, 1971.
Bits of all these intertwined in my being. To. Be. I.
