What could be worse than loneliness? When there is no one to talk to but a dog? When the only son turned his back on you, and it seems that no one in the whole world needs you and all the best is behind?
Evgenia heard many times that this happens, but never thought that it would happen to her. However, it happened. And now I had to think about how to live on, how to cope with the melancholy that rolled over me so often and so inopportunely.
«We are responsible for those we have tamed.» We repeat this phrase of Saint-Exupery so often that it has become worn out, even banal. But there is no other recipe for loneliness, except to find a person who is even worse than you, and — to help, warm up, «tame». To please with little things: a plate of hot soup in cold weather, an unpretentious Olivier on New Year’s Eve, freshly washed floors and a decorated Christmas tree.
For Eugenia, it became a recipe for melancholy, a cure for loneliness.
