People’s contemplation of nature is disturbed by everyday hustle and scramble. A man as the social and gregarious creature flings himself into diverse activities. A man’s tendency toward something he calls life is often contrary to his preferences. A man does not listen to reason. A man’s brain blocks his senses. Sometimes somebody’s words can change people’s behaviour. Magic and simple words written by Chekhov help my mistress to perceive imagery in natural phenomena.
“High above the earth, the distance immense, immense … strange, in a word: the nature!!!”
