The first circle of loneliness
The second circle of loneliness
The third circle of loneliness
The fourth circle of loneliness
The fifth circle of loneliness
Do you remember when the client asked you to smile at 6:00 am in the morning while you were packing herbs? Why did you become angry with yourself, do you think you don’t have the right to feel bad?
The sixth circle of loneliness
Do you remember when you wrote poetry and you told your brother that it was written by Galaktion Tabidze? When our grandma passed away you again wrote something but you did not let anyone read it. In a time when so many people are dying, are you more afraid of your death or the death of others?
The seventh circle of loneliness
Do you remember that sunny day at Lisi Lake when somebody punched you in the face? What did you feel then, why have you never talked to anyone about it? How many people stay silent today, behind their windows?
The eighth circle of loneliness
Do you remember when you strongly believed in happy families? Do you still think that he would have jumped out of the window if you had not held him back? When you worry too much about something, how much time should pass before it loses its meaning?
The ninth circle of loneliness
Do you remember the first time you wept with someone? Can we be sincere with each other if we have never cried together before? If we do not feel embarrassed after we cry, does it mean that this is the first time we are genuinely sincere?
