Най-златното злато by Петя Караколева
“Над тях утрото опъна синьото платно на небето на кръгъл гергеф, който беше самият хоризонт, и избродира жълто пролетно слънце.”
Петя Караколева

Най-златното злато by Петя Караколева
“Пролетта цяла седмица топуркаше през гората, помъкнала дъждовна вода в съдран чувал, и цяла седмица от чувала ту прекапваше, ту преваляваше, ту от някоя дупка се изливаше същински порой. А поляните пиеха дъжда капка по капка ...”

“(…) I remembered the words in the note Mom left in my Survival Kit about using my imagination. Finally, after all this time, I felt its wheels begin to turn again, slowly at first, as if they were rusty, then with more confidence, as if someone had flipped on a switch. In the light of this awareness, I began to have faith that my mother was still with me, embedded and woven into this part of me I`d tried so hard to bury, the part that was most like her, my imagination. Even though she wasn`t here anymore, not literally, I could suddenly feel her everywhere, see her presence in everything, in the memories she created ad left for us, in the hope she had for our survival as a family, and that she`d packed into a series of brown paper lunch bags with big capital letters on the side.”

“Music hadn`t always deepened my grief. For most of my sixteen years, it had healed my hurts, soothed them, given me a way to remember and the strength to move on.”

“(…) I`d learned from experience that hugging someone only encouraged the person to cry even harder and I always wanted the tears to stop. But I was beginning to understand that there would always be sadness when it comes to our mother. A layer of sorrow was now knit through us so certain moments, memories, even new experiences, would tap it, and this was one of those moments. So instead of leaving Jim alone until the tears dried up and disappeared, I mustered to courage to reach out and wrap my arms around him, and when I did, he bent down and cried even harder into my shoulder.
I was willing to be his shoulder as long as he needed me to be.
This was how we survived, I was learning.”

“This is what I imagined as I watched my kite, my beautiful kite, with its heart, its star and crayon, its note and flowers glowing from the light of the sun behind it. I felt love and grief and joy and all the emotions in between, letting my weathered broken heart knit itself back together again as I said goodbye to my mother.
Our imaginations are such gifts, she used to say.
So I thanked her for mine.”
Donna Freitas, The Survival Kit

“There were just little things and they still made me sad, but I become better at staying in my sadness and at resisting the urge to chase it away.”
