Contes que em van curar

Afghan traditional stories explained by the protagonist of the secret of my turban.



«I have not seen them anymore, the landscapes of the stories, but they still exist in my fantasy. When I was born, my country had already been at war for fourteen years. Neither deer, nor foxes, nor forests I have seen in my environment. Everything is scorched earth. But perhaps mother’s stories were her way of explaining to me what my country was like, my landscape, before the desolation… She made me learn the history of my town, destroyed and lost, without books. Those stories are always present to me. They keep me company, especially now that I am far from my country. Thanks to the stories, when I feel lost, I see the light of the cabin in the woods there in the distance. It is the emotional dimension of my identity”.

BUT NA BUT… this was and she was not a girl with a body wounded by the war but with the energy of a huge heart fed by the stories of her mother.
