a long-awated piece in support of family values
2 June 2019 | by CupPustaSee all my reviews

Meet thy life. Not a fairy tale, though not from the lowest of the class. Just an ordinary life of ordinary people with ordinary biographies in an ordinary (modern (European)) world. Everyone has to mature (in a better meaning of this word). Either you're a child or a long-grown-up. Introduce values in your life, through painful changes (life is everyone's pain, didn't you know). But, what keeps us people going on, is eternal. Families and generations - that's what we're meant for by Creator Almighty (no matter how you envisage Him). No, this isn't a full-blood drama (and it hasn't be like this, it teaches us humanity even in a simplest basic form (but that's enough)). Though, the ending is, somewhat, crumpled... But, that's not an ending in its usual way. The new life awaits, it's not depicted, it's the future. Go on!
