Postcard from Russia


This is from Natalia who sends the following quote by famous stage director Nikita Mikhalkov:

The essence of the Russian “people determines, on the one hand, the hope for a miracle, and on the other hand, the belief that all is not the power to decide but compassion, kindness, contemplation, compassion.”

I must say that I enjoy very much this postcard which purports to be–according to the back–The Cafhedral[sic] of the Elevation of the Cross in the Yuriev Monastery 1823. ┬áBut it actually seems to be a picture of a boulder in a field, with the cathedral off in the far distance.

  1. Haha! Clearly someone wanted the pretty flowers in the shot and didn’t know how to accomplish that without also including the boulder. I like it though.
